Announcement

International Symposium on Novel Energy Nanomaterials, Catalysts and Surfaces for Future Earth [ October 28-30, 2017 ] Early-bird registration now open

March 24, 2017

Climate change, rapid population growth, and related global issues have led to the launch of international initiatives with the aim of developing innovative science and technology to build the infrastructure for a sustainable society based on clean energy and green environment. Specifically, to meet these challenges for ‘Future Earth’, scientists and engineers are focusing their efforts on interdisciplinary research including energy materials, surface science, molecular and nanocatalysis chemistry, and development of related energy-based science and technology.

With this background, this international symposium was inspired in response to growing calls for a scientific platform for the global community of researchers active in materials research, characterization/imaging with synchrotron radiation in situ/operando XAFS, and X-ray based techniques (CT, TXM, AP-HAXPES, RIXS, XRD, etc.), to meet, share, and discuss their latest discoveries in these critical and rapidly evolving disciplines.

We look forward to your participation.

Areas covered by the symposium

Synthesis, functions, and devices

  • Novel energy nanomaterials, catalysts and surfaces
  • Catalysts and interfaces specifically designed for green processes
  • Fuel cells, batteries, and photovoltaic devices and systems
  • Electrocatalysts and photocatalysts
  • Applied optics
  • Other related topics
Methodology and Characterization
  • XAFS; e.g. in situ/operando, time-resolved, imaging (spatially resolved), MD, etc.
  • Imaging and visualization; e.g. synchrotron CT, TXM, etc.
