The high quality scientific program will address different topics covering the fields of Energy, Biomaterials,
Semiconductors, Nanomaterials and Functional Materials. The latest scientific results will be presented and
authors are invited to submit papers in the selected journals that fit the scope of each symposium. It is worth
noting that the papers are peer-reviewed at a high scientific level, according to a process and timetable that
are at the discretion of the symposia organizers.
The focus of the scientific program will be both on fundamental investigations and technological applications,
providing an international forum for discussing recent advances related to the different aspects to be considered
to promote innovation.
This very exciting program is complemented by the plenary session on Wednesday afternoon. Two outstanding
speakers, Prof. Zhenan Bao, of Stanford University, USA, and Prof. Patrice Simon of Université Paul
Sabatier, Toulouse, France, will address the “hot” topics “Synthesis and applications of functional organic
and polymer materials” and “Electrochemical energy storage – supercapacitors”, respectively.

Event: FEBS Workshop – Biological Surfaces and Interfaces: Interface Dynamics
Location Hotel Eden Roc,Sant Feliu de Guixols, Catalonia, SPAIN
Contact: Manuel Salmerón-Sánchez, e-mail: Manuel.Salmeron-Sanchez@glasgow.ac.uk
This conference covers research into the dynamics of biological interfaces. The goal of the meeting is to bring together researchers from diverse disciplines who are actively working on this topic and to engage young scientists at the doctoral and postdoctoral level, nucleating new ideas and new directions.
The concept of biological interfaces is at the cornerstone of research areas as diverse as implant design and control of stem cell differentiation, biocatalysis, nanomedicine, cancer, drug delivery and systems biology. In applications that range from precision medicine to biotechnology and bioengineering, the future is behind systems that interact with the biological environment in a specific manner at the molecular and cellular level, engaging well-defined signalling pathways and responses. In view of the complexity and dynamic nature of biological processes, artificial interfaces themselves have to become dynamic and highly adaptative to external stimuli.

Event: The 14th International Symposium on Sputtering and Plasma Processes (ISSP 2017)
Location Kanazawa Institute of Technology, Nonoichi, Japan
Contact: Yasusei Yamada; e-mail: email@example.com
International Symposium on Sputtering and Plasma Processes (ISSP) was established in 1991. The main subject of the 1st symposium was “Reactive Sputtering”. It was the time that some new approaches to improve deposition rate and stability of the reactive sputtering process were started to be addressed. Since then, the symposium has been held biennially. At each symposium, the current topics and trends concerning sputtering and plasma processes have become the main focus and such topics have been discussed intensively.
This symposium has two characteristics. One is that the program committee is formed mainly by members from related industries. Hence, the general tendency of papers presented in the symposium is practical use of the sputtering technology and industrial relevancy. The other is that all the oral speakers including invited ones are requested to present their papers also at the poster session of the day of the oral presentation, giving unique opportunities for attendees to discuss details of the oral presentations with speakers.
We hope that every engineer and researcher in the world who is interested in sputtering and plasma processes attends this exciting symposium. We look forward to seeing you in Kanazawa.
