The international conference on International Conference on Functional Materials for Advanced Technology (ICFMAT 2009) provides an ideal platform to to discuss the latest advancements in the Physics and Chemistry of materials The idea is to bring together researchers, scientists and academia active in the field of solid state and materials chemistry into a single arena. The conference looks ahead to cover a wide range of interdisciplinary topics such as Functional materials, Nanomaterials, Magnetic materials, Biomaterials, Display materials and Energy Storage materials which are in the forefront of present day material development. The conference will also cover theoretical modeling/simulations, novel approaches in materials synthesis, characterization techniques and applications.

Materials Research centre, Department of Physics, Velammal Engineering College, Chennai-600 066, India is actively working on NLO Materials, Magnetic Materials, Semiconductor Materials, Nano Materials, Materials for Display Devices, Device Fabrications. Researchers in this centre are actively engaged in CSIR, DRDO& DST funded projects. This centre is also offering Ph.D programmes. The Department of Physics has been active in several research programs in these frontier areas and takes pride in bringing together pioneers, stalwarts and other active researchers all over the world by this conference.

The technical programs comprise of plenary, keynote and invited talks from eminent scientists from India and abroad, contributed lectures from both the young and experienced researchers and also poster presentations. The two-day conference will provide an attractive atmosphere for the participants from all over the world to discuss, to interact and to exchange their prolific ideas and state-of-the-art work with some of the best minds in the field. One of the highlights of the conference would be giving young and talented researchers a chance to present their work and share their ideas with the most eminent scientists in the field.
