Symposia

Energy and Functional Materials (EFM)

This symposium to be chaired by Prof. Woo-Byoung Kim (Dankook University) and Prof. Seong-Ho Baek (Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology) will address energy materials and functional materials. Various advanced energy-related research leading to state-of-the-art novel and nanomaterials. Including photovoltaics, batteries, supercapacitors, fuel cells, hydrogen technologies, thermoelectrics, photocatalysis, solar power technololies, magnetic refrigeration, and piezoelectric materials, are well within the scope of the symposium. And, functional materials are designed to make use of their new functionality to respond to change in electrical and magnetic fields, physical and chemical environment, etc. These design considerations are functionally different to those relevant for structural materials. Functional materials play an increasingly important role in the development of the field of materials science and engineering. This session covers the theoretical and experiment studies of functional materials, such as the characterization and new application related research on the functional materials in macro, micro, and nano scaled material science and engineering.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to)
  • Fabrication and synthesis of new materials for energy devices
  • Surface and interface modification technologies for energy devices
  • Surface engineering and functionalization for energy materials
  • Novel and nanomaterials for energy harvesting
  • Novel and nanomaterials for energy storages
Invited speakers (tentative) include
