The conference is organised in conjunction with EPSRC-supported projects Manufacture of Safe and Sustainable Volatile Element Functional Materials (MASSIVE) and Substitution and Sustainability in Functional Materials and Devices (SUBST), and is co-chaired by Professor Robert Dorey (Department of Mechanical Engineering Sciences, University of Surrey) and Professor Ian M. Reaney (Department of Materials Science & Engineering, University of Sheffield).
SFM2018 will focus on the issues around maintaining an environmentally friendly, sustainable and economically viable functional materials and device industry. The conference will be of interest both to academic researchers and to industrialists aiming to gain the perspective of industry concerning the materials substitution and sustainability issues likely to become critical over the next decade. Topics will include:
functional properties and characterisation
sustainability and risk
scale-up of processing and manufacturing techniques
We welcome contributed oral and poster presentations on the topics outlined above within the theme of the conference. Abstracts should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org using this SFM2018 abstract template (docx). Registration is £140 for academics and £100 for students. (This includes welcome reception, lunches and coffee breaks, accommodation is not included).
