Functional nanomaterials with intrinsically new and tailored properties are key elements for developing sustainable solutions for energy, environment and health. Specifically, this symposium will focus on new energy technologies and devices based on inorganic, hybrid and composite materials. This symposium will focus on the multifunctional materials and techniques that offer advanced processing, improved properties, and low-cost/low-temperature synthesis, with a strong focus on the recent innovation in nanotechnological approaches and the assessment of their industrial impact.
Particular emphasis will be given to novel synthesis approaches, surface functionalization, and heterostructuring of nanoparticles, nanowires, and nanoscopic films and their heterostructures, fundamentally new properties, and energy-efficient materials synthesis. Applications of nanostructures in photocatalysis, photovoltaic, energy, sensing and bio-medical applications that combine advanced processing with conceptual advancement will form the major thrust areas. Contributions related to energy applications such as perovskite materials, batteries, fuel cells, water splitting, and carbon dioxide conversion as well as transparent conductors and challenges related to the large-scale production and integration of functional and structural nanomaterials are highly desired.

This event will provide an international forum for the presentation of technological advances, and latest research on the state-of-the-art in innovative processing and device applications of new materials to meet the challenges of sustainable energy and environment technologies. Interested and committed individuals from academia, national laboratories, industries and start-up companies are invited to contribute by submitting their abstracts on the following and related topics.
