Scope of the Symposium

This symposium aims at discussing the impact of joining studies in the theoretical and experimental areas in the control and understanding of intrinsic and extrinsic properties of solid state. The main idea is to promote discussions that involve the fundamental and technological aspects of the materials that may lead to the improvement, understanding and foreseeing of the properties of technological devices.

Historical notes:

Following the initial proposal by Prof. E. Longo (Foz do Iguaçu, 2004), the symposium was re-edited in 2006 (Florianopolis), 2007 (Natal) and 2008 (Guarujá) by Profs. J. R. Sambrano and J. B. Lopes Martins and 2009 (ICAM – Rio de Janeiro) coordinated by Prof. Carlton Taft. In its last edition, 2010 (Ouro Preto) the symposium was coordinated by Profs J. R. Sambrano and I. M. G dos Santos. Since its first, edition the symposium attracted an increasing number of contributions, reaching about 500 abstracts in 2010.

Abstracts will be solicited in (but not limited to) the following areas:

  • Application of simulation in the understanding of physical and chemical properties of nanostructured materials, surfaces and bulk;
  • Theoretical analysis on energetic and dynamic factors in technological materials;
  • Development and application of art state methodologies (classic, statistic and quantic) applied to new materials;
  • Influence of synthesis and processing in the extrinsic properties controlled by grain boundary, by material structure and by characteristics of inorganic systems;
  • Materials with potential application in energy generation and environment;
  • Nanomaterials with differential extrinsic properties – theoretical and experimental aspects;
  • Transport theory related to devices and electronic structure in molecular scale;
  • Processing and applications as biosensors and electronic, chemical and photonic devices.
