SPECIAL SESSION 5 MULTIFUNCTIONAL MATERIALS (MFM) (SS5)
The session aims at a broad coverage of all related aspects of functional polymers and composites. Multifunctional Materials (MFM) is a multidisciplinary session designed to serve an emerging field that connects the materials science, physics, chemistry, bioscience and engineering. This special session will appeal to academics, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, industrial governmental researchers and scientists, and those currently involved in the development of polymeric and composite material applications to address the most critical needs in areas such as energy, transport, building, health and sustainability.
