welcome to the 2nd international conference for smart materials

The Salzburg Center for Smart Materials is pleased to announce that it will host the second installment of the conference series “Salzburg Conference for Smart Materials” from the 12th to the 14th of September. The conference will bring together a diverse audience affiliated with smart materials with a broad scope of expertise ranging from materials science over engineering to smart manufacturing and smart industrial applications. We aim to provide a forum for leading experts and young scientists to share their latest findings and advances as well as to discuss how smart materials can contribute to a bio-economy and a sustainable future.
Following the conference, the first lunch-to-lunch, hands-on workshop on functional nano-structured sustainable materials from the 14th to the 15th of September will be held in the same venue. Within this workshop the fascinating properties of green chemistry and sustainable functional materials, e.g. porous tannin-based materials, are introduced during lab-on experiments as well as characterization of these materials.


2nd Salzburg Conference
for Smart Materials

12 – 14 September

The focus of this conference is to bring together an international and diverse research community with leading academic scientists and researchers with different backgrounds as well as researchers from industry to share their latest findings on smart materials. The conference emphasizes not only on the material science and engineering side, but also on tangible user interfaces and smart manufacturing.


1st Workshop on Functional Nano
Structured Sustainable Materials

14 – 15 September

We are inviting bachelor, master and PhD students, postdocs as well as scientists from research and industry to get introduced into the fascinating properties of green chemistry and sustainable functional materials, e.g. porous tannin based materials. We perform many lab-on experiments learning how to synthesize and characterize these materials.
