Importance and Scope of the Conference

Energy is a part of science in which materials and Technology plays an important role as Advanced Functional Materials to meet the needs of the future environment. The increasing ecological problems such as energy storage, generation and conservation are the major drivers of functional materials and Technology. There is a need of developing sustainable energy production and consumption to achieve the socio-economic and environmental targets. The major significance of Energy sources helps in strengthening the research and advancement of materials towards sustainable development and relevant applications. The universal emphasis on energy is to develop materials for energy generation, low energy processing, energy conservation and conversion to meet the increasing energy demand of the country. Advanced Functional Materials provides a wide range of applications that discourse the current innovations and novel approaches for the expansion of energy materials to meet global desires. ICAFMSE-2023 covers major interdisciplinary subjects such as Nanomaterials and devices, Fuel cells, Organic and inorganic Solar Energy, Batteries storage devices, Glass Science and Technology, Photocatalytic methods, Green energy, Photonic devices and Environmental sustainability.

We assure that, this conference will provide a platform to Academicians, Researchers, Industrialists, Scholars and students to interact with distinguished and eminent Scientists all around the globe of diverse fields. The conference also aimed to understand the latest developments in the field of advanced functional materials through hybrid mode. It also aims at kindling interest in the minds of young students to pursue research as higher career. It is anticipated to widen the scope of interdisciplinary research among academicians and researchers.

Interested researchers are invited to submit their original research contributions in the following themes related to the primary thematic research areas of ICAFMSE 2023 for Oral and Poster presentations. We also provide space for Institutes and companies to present their innovative products, services, and research results.
