Functional Energy Materials Conference
28 Sept – 1 Oct 2016
The expected huge increase in world 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.
Poster Prize Sponsor
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.

Laboratory for Structure and Properties of Molecular Architectures (SPrAM)
Cavtat, Dubrovnik. Croatia
Situated across the bay from the historic walls of Dubrovnik dating back to the 7th century, Hotel Croatia Cavtat is the leading conference hotel on the South Adriatic. Nestled in a forest, surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation, the location of this hotel in Cavtat, Dubrovnik, is as beautiful as it is tranquil. With the closest Dubrovnik Airport being just 3.5 miles away.
The conference centre is unparalleled on the Adriatic coast and has hosted many large, small, domestic and international conferences, through which Hotel Croatia Cavtat has earned a reputation as a leading conference venue.
The Hotel Croatia Cavtat is modern and stylish. It has everything you would expect from one of Dubrovnik’s leading locations – indoor and outdoor pools, hiking trails around the coast, an exceptional choice of restaurants, and a beautiful sites to see in the Old Town.
