The goal of the Particle Based Materials Symposium is to bring together scientists and engineers from different communities that all share the goal of creating functionality in materials using particles. The synthesis, processing and materials integration of particles into thin films, bulk matrices, fibers or other geometries are covered by this symposium. 

A strong focus will be on the development of scalable processes, novel modelling or characterisation techniques as well as material properties that can be achieved using particles and that would be hard to obtain using other approaches. Anisotropic, complex particles, and supraparticles that bring new or multiple functionalities to materials are of particular interest.

Information on registration and submission can be found here.

The PBM Symposium 2019 is sponsored by:


• Synthesis (bottom up, top down or in situ), characterisation (including new multidimensional techniques) and processing (purification, formulation, etc.) of particles to be used in advanced materials.

• Special types of particles (anisotropic particles, supra-particles, multifunctional particles, etc.).

• Assembly, arrangement, alignment and patterning of particles in films and bulk materials, multiscale simulations of particle growth, assembly and properties.

• Applications of particle based materials with targeted (multi)functionality (magnetic, optical, electronic, structural, chemical, biological, etc.).
