12th International Conference on Physics of Advanced Materials (ICPAM-12) and the 3rd Autumn School on Physics of Advanced Materials (PAMS-3) will be held on September 22 – 28, 2018, in Heraklion, Crete, Greece. The events are organized by Alexandru Ioan Cuza University and Technological Educational Institute of Crete, together with prestigious universities and research institutes all around the world.

The main objective of ICPAM-12 is to provide a forum for scientists involved in physics of advanced materials, emerging nanotechnologies and new devices, to exchange their knowledge and experience. ICPAM-12 sessions address recent advancements and new strategies and will include keynote, invited, oral and poster presentations that cover a wide range of hot interdisciplinary research domains. ICPAM-12 also offers a space for sponsors/exhibitors to present their services, products, innovations and research results.

PAMS-3 is focused on providing interdisciplinary expert training, involving both fundamental knowledge and current research topics. Besides their contribution in the PAMS-3 poster session, the attendees may have a presentation in ICPAM-12.

There will be awards for best poster and oral presentations, a special category for the best student paper and other prizes.

The 5th International Festival of NanoArt and the 3rd Art and Science Photography Exhibition and Workshop will be organized in parallel with the conference, continuing our effort to promote art and science interaction. All these events, together with the social ones, will provide opportunities for all participants to actively engage in discussions and establish future collaborations. Based on the success of previous editions, we are confident that ICPAM-12 and PAMS-3 will meet your expectations. We look forward to your active support and participation.
