    Functional Energy Materials Conference

    28 Sept – 1 Oct 2016

    The expected huge increase in windfarm-300x225world energy consumption associated with serious environmental problems and the remarkable growth of photovoltaic and other renewable energy industries has generated a great interest in the scientific community in developing new materials and concepts useful for energy technologies. This conference will consider advances in research on materials for energy harvesting and storage with a special emphasis on photosynthesis, organic and inorganic photovoltaics, batteries and fuel cells, thermoelectric materials, magneto-, mechano- and electrocaloric materials and catalysts.

    A goal of this international conference is to bring together experts in advanced experimental and characterization techniques with theorists and specialists in numerical simulation. The plenary and invited speakers will be chosen to present the state of the art in energy materials with an appropriate balance between fundamental and applied sciences. The ZING conference format has proved to be an exceptionally productive forum for exchanging experience and ideas between scientists from different disciplines around the world. This conference will present ideal opportunities for developing new concepts of materials for energy harvesting and storage.

    A special consideration will be given to young scientists to allow them to present short talks concerning recent exciting results in the different sessions. In addition, a poster session will be held to encourage free discussion between participants and we would very much encourage all participants to bring along posters to allow further discussions.

    Molecular Systems Design & Engineering provides a hub for cutting-edge research into how understanding of molecular properties, behaviour and interactions can be used to design and assemble better materials, systems, and processes to achieve specific functions. These may have applications of technological significance and help address global challenges.

    Poster Presentation Cash Award
    Further, the conference chairs are offering a €200 cash prize to be awarded to a Poster Presenter at the conference. To be eligible to win this prize, please bring along a poster for the Poster Session. All attendees are welcome to bring a Poster for consideration including senior speakers and delegates giving an oral presentation.
