Welcome EMM-FM 2015

Dear Colleagues, Dear Scientists

After the full success of the First and Second Euro-Mediterranean Meetings on Functionalized Materials (EMM-FM/2011 held September 2011 in Sousse-Tunisia and EMM-FM/2013 held in March 2013 in Hammamet-Tunisia) and after discussion with several potential invited speakers and participants, we have the great pleasure to announce the:

Third Euro-Mediterranean Meeting on Functionalized Materials


to be held in the famous seaside resort of Hammamet (Tunisia) on September 09-13, 2015.

This period is chosen for its ideal climate conditions and good hotel prices. We would be very pleased to welcome you in the beautiful city of Hammamet (about 60 km to the south of Tunis, the main City of Tunisia) to explore a plethora of information on current research in functionalized and emergent materials and to network with fellow academic and industrial researchers.

As before, the service and venue will be “5 stars” quality (international rating) with ultra all inclusive service. In addition to the high scientific level of the meeting, we also like to give an opportunity to our guests for unforgettable holidays together with the best scientific event.

EMM-FM 2015 will highlight advances in all major disciplines of functionalized and smart materials and emergent applications.

The main thematic topics are classified as follows:

1/ Nano-materials and molecules for physical and chemical applications
