Keynote Speakers:




AMN8 8th International Conference on Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology

We are all familiar with the relationship between energy and climate change, but few academics and policy makers are also aware of the contribution that complexity science can make to the topic. The conference will therefore explore the relationship between all three to provide some richer insights both on the research being done and the policy it informs.

Since the topic is very broad, we will focus on impact and we will ask our speakers to address the following question, based on their own work: “What will it (society, cities, environment, way of living, etc.) look like in 100 years? What decisions would you, as a scientist or policy maker, make now knowing that they would impact the 4th generation and beyond?”

Speakers and participants will be drawn from academia, government, industry and the arts; and presentations will cover the range from well established to state of the art research as well as informed policy to address the challenges of climate change.

The conference will be held in beautiful Seville, in Andalucía, in the spring of 2017 and apart from the intellectual stimulation provided by the conference; participants will be able to explore its rich culture, with three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: The Alcázar, the Cathedral, and the Archivo General de Indias (General Archive of the Indies); as well as wonderful museums, art galleries, flamenco dancing and delicious food!


Second International Conference on Materials Science (ICMS2017)

This conference aims to provide a forum for scientists, researchers and educators around the world to exchange state-of-the-art research and development and identify research needs and opportunities in all aspects of Material Science. The primary objectives of this conference are to provide scientists, engineers, graduate students and other professionals with a forum to actively engage in research discussions, and professional development; and create opportunities for the next generation workforce to develop their professional skills.

ICMS2017 will cover a wide range of interdisciplinary and current research topics related to Material Science. Research on advanced materials includes nanomaterials, bio-nanomaterials, zero bandgap materials, composites, surface engineering, tissue engineering and biomaterials etc. These materials have numerous applications in electronics, biotechnology, medicine and energy harvesting. The importance of nano-science and nanotechnology has been well documented by both industrial and academic communities worldwide. It is believed that breakthroughs in nano-science and technology will change all aspects of human life in such diverse areas as, electronic devices, energy, biomedicine, sensing, environment, and security etc.

This conference will include keynotes & invited presentations, contributed oral & poster presentations. ICMS2017 will provide opportunities for young researchers to actively engage in research discussions, information about current funding opportunities, new research interests, safety issues in nanotechnology and research ethics and professional development. There will be awards for best oral and poster presentation for research scholars. All presented papers will be considered for publication in a reputed journal / book after peer review process.
