Dear colleagues, friends, and the wider material science community:

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the 4th International Conference of Materials, organized by MDPI’s Open Access journal Materials. This conference will be held in the beautiful city of Barcelona from October 19 to October 21, 2022. The first three editions of the conference were in electronic format, and each was a great success. This has encouraged the organizing committee to take this tradition to the next level by organizing the 4th edition of this conference in Barcelona, where all stakeholders working on various aspects of materials science and material engineering can come together. The aim is to make this event a forum for discussion, knowledge exchange and fruitful interactions among participants in this exponentially growing field.

Stakeholders from academia and industry as well as from governments and research institutes are welcome to join this event and share their findings on various topics related to materials, such as:

  • Materials Characterization
  • Nanotechnology in Material Sciences and Engineering
  • Materials Processing and Manufacturing
  • Soft and Bio-materials
  • Fibers and Membranes
  • Optical, Electrical and Magnetic Materials

We are very enthusiastic about this 4th Materials Conference and are relying on you to make it a successful event.

We look forward to meeting you in Barcelona!

29 June–1 July 2022 2nd International Conference on Aerogels for Biomedical and Environmental Applications

Athens, Greece

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the 2nd International Conference on Aerogels for Biomedical and Environmental Applications, which will be held from 29 June to 1 July 2022, in Athens, Greece. The meeting is organized by the AERoGELS COST Action ( and the Department of Chemistry of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece (

Aerogels are widely known as nanostructured porous ultra-light materials comprising mostly air. With unique properties traceable to their nanostructure, aerogels make their way into advanced technology. With thermal insulation being their flagship application, aerogels are rapidly penetrating all current areas of nanotechnology, with special momentum in biomedicine and the environment. Biomedical applications include aerogel-based materials as drug carriers, synthetic bone grafts (implants), or advanced wound dressings. Environmental applications include heat insulation, sound insulation, sensing and detection of air and water pollutants, wastewater treatment, and air decontamination.

The conference will also host a Symposium on Aerogels for Food Applications, which include sustainable ingredients, biodegradable food packaging, and adjuvants for the removal of odors and other contaminants. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you all in Athens!
