Molecular Materials and Functions


Indian Institute of Technology Madras

Conference Description

This international conference on Molecular Materials and Functions, sponsored by IIT Madras, will be held in Chennai, India during December, 2024. The main objective of the conference is to create a forum for discussion on molecular materials and associated functions – where the fundamental building blocks are molecules rather than atoms. By studying the chemical, physical, and mechanical properties of such materials, it is expected that we will achieve breakthrough results in the emergence of properties in matter as well as gain fundamental insights into the reactivity, catalysis, electrical transport, magnetism, and energy storage and dissipation, in the foreseeable future. This conference on Molecular Materials and Functions is to put together pioneering researchers, innovators, and practitioners from institutions worldwide, who have made a profound impact in diverse areas around molecular materials, to address current challenges and to engage with them in the years ahead. A CoE Winter School for students and postdoctoral fellows is held in addition to the conference to enable researchers to learn from cutting-edge research experts and allow for informal networking opportunities with leaders in the field

Organizing Institute

IIT Madrasis a public, technical, and research university, responsible for academic activities which include Teaching, Research, and Industrial Consultancy. It is located in Chennai, India. It has been the top-ranking engineering institute in India for the past 7 years in the NIRF (National Institutional Ranking Framework) Rankings since this ranking system was announced in 2015, by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD).

Key Sponsor

The Department of Science and Technology (DST) is a department within the Ministry of Science and Technology in India. It was established in May 1971 to promote new areas of science and technology and to play the role of a nodal department for organising, coordinating and promoting Scientific and Technological activities in the country. It gives funds to various approved scientific projects in India. It also supports various researchers in India to attend conferences abroad and to go for experimental works.
