BITS-Pilani Organizing An International Conference on Nano and Functional Materials (NFM-2017)

BITS-Pilani, Pilani Campus invited researchers and students to present their research findings in an International Conference on Nano and Functional Materials (NFM-2017) organizing by Department of Chemistry on 16–18 November 2017. The Objective of the conference is to expose the students & researchers with the recent advances in the fields of nano-materials and functional materials in our country and across the globe.

The aim is to elucidate the seamless mixing of science and engineering aspects in development of the very important interdisciplinary domain of material science. This will stage a panel of eminent researchers/ professors to seed ideas/ concepts for trans-disciplined collaborations, towards growing national and global technology demands in materials science and engineering.

NFM-2017 Conference will be mostly centered on,

  • Materials for Nanoscience
  • Materials for Opto-electronics and Biosensors
  • Computational Aspects in Material Science
  • Materials for Renewable Resource Applications
  • Materials for Green Chemistry & Catalysis
  • Materials for Pharmaceuticals and Drug Delivery
  • Materials for Device Applications
  • Materials for Biomedical and Agricultural Sciences
