The next international conference ‘Functional materials and Nanotechnologies-2017’ will be held at the Dorpat conference centre in Tartu, Estonia in April, 24 – 27, 2017.

The “FM&NT-2017” belongs to the yearly conference series started by the Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Latvia . According to the discussion taken place at the FM&NT-2012, in 2013 the conference was organized by Institute of Physics, University of Tartu and thereafter it will take place in Tartu in every third year. One year in Riga, one year in Tartu and one year in Vilnius. In year 2017 is the second time the conference will be held in Tartu, Estonia. This time it will be organized by the Estonian Physical Society and University of Tartu .

The scope of conference covers experimental and theoretical research on functional materials, nanotechnology, optical materials, novel characterization methods, low dimensional systems and sustainable energy technologies.

The deadline for submitting abstracts is extended to March 12, 2017. Abstracts should be submitted on the conference web site http://www.fmnt.ut.ee/abstract-upload/. The deadline for the Early-Bird registration is March 25, 2017. Registration form should be submitted on the conference web site  http://www.fmnt.ut.ee/registration/.
