After the success of last year’s inaugural Advances in Functional Materials (AFM) Conference at Stony Brook University, the second annual International AFM Conference will be held at the International Convention Center in South Korea from August 8 through August 11.
Tae Jin Kim, assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering at Stony Brook University, is chair and co-organizer of the 2016 AFM Conference. “This event will present up-to-date research and results in the field of functional materials,” he said. “The conference will provide an opportunity for delegates from around the world to share their findings and exchange cutting-edge ideas and applications to establish fruitful research and business relationships with each other.”
During the 2016 AFM Conference, two plenary speakers, 27 keynote and invited speakers, and more than 550 oral/poster presenters will present their latest research works in the seven different functional material research fields: Advances in Multifunctional Composite Materials; Advances in Thin Films; Advances in Polymers and Ceramics; Advances in Energy Storage and Conversion Devices; Advances in Biosensors and Biomaterials; Advances in Catalysis; and Advances in Low Dimensional, Nano and 2D Materials.
“The conference will showcase state-of-the-art functional materials research achievements to senior/junior scientists, engineers, educators and students,” said Professor Kim. “It will serve as a platform to share new research ideas, knowledge and experience, and to develop a collaborative international research network in all areas of functional materials.”
