Dear Colleagues,

NEW DATE of the 18th European Conference on Solid State Chemistry (ECSSC 2023)

The Steering Committee postponed the ECSSC in Prague in August 2021 to July 2023 due to the pandemic still prevalent and severe travel restrictions. To avoid full disruptions of the 2021 ECSSC sequence and as a reminder of the taste of the future event in Prague the Steering Committee also unanimously arranged the conference as a virtual online (ZOOM program) one day meeting e.g., August 16 or June 28, 2021, with 4 invited speakers.

Now, it is with pleasure that we invite you for the 18th European Conference on Solid State Chemistry (ECSSC 2023) to be held in Prague, Czech Republic, on July 9 – 12, 2023.

Solid state research and topic of the ECSSC 2023 are a combination of chemistry, physics, crystallography and engineering that aims at synthesis, design and evolution of solid functional materials with extended structures and interesting chemical or physical properties. As systems, this includes ceramics, heterogeneous catalysts, electrode and battery materials, semi- and superconductors, photocatalysts, sensors, pigments, luminescent substances and much more. Recently, especially materials for better energy efficiency are amongst the most investigated systems. Also, the question of resources and renewables has become prominent for materials research.

Solid materials are often inorganic chemicals (like oxides, chalcogenides, silicates, halides, borides, intermetallics), but the methods and models that are used for characterization, analysis and description of the substances come from physical chemistry, physics or crystallography. Synthetic methods include molecular and ceramic routes. An increasing role is attributed to theory both for prediction and understanding as well as for modelling and tuning of materials.

We look forward to seeing all of you in Prague in July 2023.

Tomas Wagner - organizer of 18 th ECSSC2023 (University of Pardubice)

INVITED SPEAKERS

VENUE

The conference will take place in the monastery of Břevnov, the first male monastery in Bohemia,
founded in 993. The monastery of Břevnov is a monastery in the Benedictine tradition.

The Benedictine monks follow the rule of Saint Benedict, a rule of their community which Saint
Benedict of Nursia wrote down for them in the sixth century. The way of life of this order is
expressed in the maxim „To pray and to work“. The community of monks prays and works again
in the monastery.

Nowadays the monastery runs the hotel Adalbert and the restaurant Klášterní šenk. In granary now
is an information desk and a beer shop. Representative halls of the prelate’s residence are hired for cultural and various public or private events.

PROGRAMME * CONFERENCE TOPICS

The conference will be a forum for the presentation of new research results in the area of solid state chemistry and also bridge the gap between scientific understanding and technical requirements and application, so that the enormous future potential of solid state chemistry, materials and technologies, is realized effectively.

The 18th ECSSC 2023 also encompasses different fields of solid state chemistry and physics, which is reflected in the conference aim of being a forum for discussion of all types of inorganic solids.


Topics
  • advances in solid state materials synthesis
  • functional materials
  • crystalline and disordered compounds, glasses
  • materials design
  • electrochemistry, energy 
  • nanomaterials and thin films
  • quantum materials 
  • hybrids, micro/mesoporous materials
  • nitride, chalcogenides and mixed anion compounds 
  • advanced characterisation techniques


This conference is also opened to other relevant and perspective topics
