Seventh International Conference on Multifunctional, Hybrid and Nanomaterials

19 -22 October 2022 | Genoa, Italy

At present, we intend to host the Seventh International Conference on Multifunctional, Hybrid and Nanomaterials onsite in Genoa, Italy, 19-22 October 2022, to best facilitate in-person networking and learning.

To protect the health and safety of all our conference attendees, Elsevier requires proof of Covid-19 vaccinations or a negative lateral flow test (taken under the supervision of authorized health professionals, within 48 hours) to be eligible to attend. This will be coupled with mask wearing throughout the conference.

For full information on the Elsevier conferences Covid-19 requirements, please visit the Covid-19 delegate safety page.

However, as the future situation regarding international travel remains uncertain, rest assured that should this conference be unable to take place in person, it will be changed to an online event so please submit your abstract and register in confidence.

Should this change need to occur we will let you know as soon as we are able and your registration will be carried over to the online event, with a refund of any difference in registration fee. Should this not be appropriate for you at the time, we will be able to refund your registration, minus a cancellation fee. Should the organisers cancel the conference, you will be entitled to a full refund. Please see here for our full cancellation policy.

Join us for Hybrid Materials 2022: This major conference regularly attracts around 1000 interdisciplinary delegates with a shared interest in hybrid materials and provides excellent networking opportunities.

  • Expert plenary and keynote lectures, together with focussed featured talks by invited speakers, will be supplemented by contributed talks and large poster sessions plus an exhibition.
  • Present your own research: Abstracts are invited for talks and posters by 20 May 2022 for the following Symposia:
    • Biohybrids, biomaterials and biological materials
    • Functional hybrid nanomaterials, nanocomposites and their applications
    • Functional porous materials

Previous delegates have said:

Great conference. Well-managed, great opportunity to meet and share research findings with experts and colleagues from many different fields and countries.

Energy, the environment and human health have emerged as strategic priorities not only in research but in all aspects of our lives. Hybrid materials have already demonstrated good promise in addressing and offering solutions in each of these priority areas.

The main objective of this large interdisciplinary conference is to bring together, at a truly international level, people with shared interests in hybrid materials, including:

  • Polymer chemists, physicists and engineers
  • Biomaterials chemists, physicists and engineers
  • Organic chemists
  • Inorganic chemists
  • Solid state chemists
  • Sol-gel chemists
  • Composites scientists
  • Colloid chemists and physicists
  • Zeolite, meso- and microporous materials scientists
  • Broad nano- and materials scientists

The conference will start on Wednesday 19 October 2022 and finish on Saturday 22 October 2022 Additionally, an early registration session will take place in the late afternoon/early evening of Tuesday 18 October 2022. Each day will start with a Plenary Lecture followed by 5 parallel sessions focusing on the following topics:

Symposium A: Biohybrids, biomaterials and biological materials
Symposium B: Functional hybrid nanomaterials, nanocomposites and their applications (this symposium will run in two streams)
Symposium C: Functional porous materials

A fifth parallel session (ABC) will offer talks representing all 3 main topics.
