International Symposium on Emerging Materials and Devices

“Emerging trends in materials research and engineering in addressing the current needs of our society”

We would like to invite you to an International Symposium on Emerging Materials and Devices hosted by both Advanced Functional Materials Device Lab (Nazarbayev University) and Advanced Solar Energy Materials & Systems Lab (National Laboratory Astana, Nazarbayev University), to be held on December 13-15, 2021, online.

The goal of this event is to bring leaders in Material Science and Engineering together from across the globe.

This symposium highlights the emerging materials and devices with emphasis on newly discovered or applied materials with the potential to solve current problems and can improve the quality of life corresponding to energy, environment, medicine, advanced manufacturing, and other related fields.
This also provides an avenue for researchers and educators to exchange ideas and explore possible collaborations. Nazarbayev University, a new and dynamic university in the center of Eurasia, is a perfect platform for international networking between researchers in the field of next-generation materials and devices.
