Hybrid materials: Exciting interdisciplinary field offering future solutions for industry

Oxford, UK, 6 March 2008 Elsevier, the world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced today Hybrid Materials 2009: The First International Conference on Multifunctional, Hybrid and Nanomaterials which will take place in Tours, France, 15-19 March 2009.

Research in hybrid materials has experienced a 14% annual growth in published papers in recent years with increasing interest from a wide range of industries. This inaugural meeting aims to bring together experts from the various sub-disciplines to share current research and create an interdisciplinary forum for discussion.

Clment Sanchez, CNRS Research Director at the University of Paris VI and author of some the worlds most cited papers on hybrid materials, is one of the four conference chairs. He is enthusiastic about the future of research in this area: Hybrid materials not only represent a creative approach to design of new materials, but their improved or unusual properties also allow the development of innovative industrial applications. This interdisciplinary research field will open a land of promising applications in many areas including optics, electronics, ionics, mechanics, energy, environment, biology, medicine. The three symposia during Hybrid Materials 2009 will cover all aspects of the chemistry, processing and applications of these advanced materials.

Rumen Duhlev, Publisher at Elsevier and initiator of this project, believes the launch of the conference is extremely timely and fulfils a real need in providing researchers in both academia and industry with a dedicated forum for discussing advances in this interdisciplinary field: We are really excited to collaborate with some of the worlds leading experts on hybrid materials in the creation of this unique international forum, aiming to bring together representatives of disciplines as diverse as inorganic chemistry, polymer science, biomaterials, organic chemistry, catalysis, composites and colleagues from the industry to share knowledge and accelerate progress.

The conference is currently calling for contributions for presentation at the meeting under one of the three following symposia: Biohybrids and biomaterials; Bottom-up approaches to functional nanomaterials and nanocomposites; Functional porous materials. Abstracts should be submitted online at by 15 September 2008.
