Organised in partnership with The Royal Australian Chemical Institute, the first Australian Materials Chemistry Conference (AMCC23) offers the materials chemistry community a highly visible platform to showcase their latest and new research.
The two-day conference will bring together experts from all subjects of materials chemistry to create a forum for fundamental and applied science.
For AMCC2023 we have a programme covering materials chemistry in all its breadth and diversity. There are seven main themes, listed below. Plenary lectures will highlight advances across the themes and keynote and invited speakers will describe leading work within each theme. Abstracts are welcomed in all areas of materials chemistry – when submitting your abstract please choose the theme most relevant to you. A session of Educational Outreach relating to materials chemistry will also be organised during this conference.
