Introduction


The European Materials Research Society (E
-
MRS) was established in 1983 through the initiative of individual European Materials
scientists. A number of European materials scientists who attended the MRS meetings in the U.S.A. realised that such a socie
ty
could
be of benefit to Europe to enhance the links between materials science and industry and to provide a voice for the materials
community.

Most of the problems facing the world such as energy supply and health will be solved only by breakthroughs in ma
terials science. It
is vital that the outcomes of research are utilised through technological experience and innovation for the benefit of mankin
d. 2013
marks the 30
th

Anniversary of E
-
MRS and the Fall Meeting provides the opportunity to exchange ideas,
expand one's knowledge and
make new contacts. The conference will consist of 14 parallel symposia, a plenary session and satellite events and provides
an
international forum to discuss recent advances in the field of materials science. The conference wil
l be augmented by an exhibition
of products and services of interest to the conference participants.

The Conference will be held at the Central Campus of the Warsaw University of Technology, from 16
th

to 20
th

September 2013. It is
the 12th E
-
MRS Fall Meet
ing following its launch in 2002 to run in parallel to the well
-
established Spring Meeting in Strasbourg. The Fall
Meeting has become increasingly multi
-
national with a steadily growing number of symposia and participants from all over the
world.

Don't m
iss it! We look forward to welcoming you to Warsaw and your active contribution and participation in the conference.

Introduction and scope:

The symposium is devoted to highlight breakthroughs in the field of alternative semiconductor integration on the
mature Silicon
technology platform, paving the way towards high performing (More Moore) and / or highly functionalized (More than Moore)
Silicon
-
based microelectronics technologies to address challenges in modern societies.


Over the past 50 years, Silicon

(Si) became the predominant material of choice for manufacturing integ
rated circuit
(IC)
technologies, achieving an unbeaten level of system integration. However, fundamental physical

limits of Si
present major stumbling
blocks for further miniat

Introduction and s
cope:



Materials properties are determined by their structure, stress, and stoichiometry, which are, in turn, influenced by the proc
essing
techniques used to synthesize them. To design better devices and novel applications we need a more complete understanding of

how the structure, interfaces, stress, defects and stoichiometry of nanomaterials and nanostructures affect their electrical,

mechanical, optical or magnetic properties.


After a very good attendance of their first symposium Stress, structure, and stoich
iometry effects on the properties of nanomaterials
during E
-
MRS Fall 2011, the organizers decided to have a follow up in 2013. Nanomaterials posses an amazing array of interesting new
and very useful properties. However, at the nanometer scale stoichiometr
y and structure strongly depends on the processing
techniques. Moreover, the role of stress, interfaces and defects in these small volumes becomes critical. The electrical, opt
ical,
magnetic and mechanical response of ultrathin films, nanotubes, nanopillar
s, nanowires and nanoparticles is therefore quite
complex and must be investigated in the context of their unique properties and special applications. The advancement of our
understanding of new phenomena, coupled with the development of more efficient pro
cesses, more accurate characterization
methods, newer functionalities for these nanomaterials and better simulation models are prerequisites to successfully meet fu
ture
challenges. What processes and nanomaterials will be implemented in future devices will

depend not only on their performance but
also on the shelf lifetime and reliability under the action of physical and chemical stresses. This symposium will explore th
e wide variety
of innovative methods that are currently being used to fabricate, characte
rize and model nanomaterials and nanostructures
structure and properties and provide a forum for discussions to highlight the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.



Hot topics to be covered by the symposium:



Advanced production, processing, and
characterization techniques for nanomaterials



Influence of the deposition process on the
structure of nanomaterials



Defects and flaws and their evolution



Influence of stoichiometry and morphology on
nanomaterials properties and device



Characteristics



Investigations and engineering of interfaces in
nanomaterials for enhanced properties



Advances in small scale characterization
techniques



Growth of heterostructures and superlattices



Use of self
-
organization and templates to grow
nanostructures



Strain cont
rol and its effects on functional
properties



Stoichiometry and structure at interfaces



Atomistic models for stress and defects in
nanostructures

Introduction and scope:


Developing new materials for renewable energy generation is critical to our planet's future. Growing

importance of environmental
issues is such that energy generation, conservation, storage and security of

supply will be ma
jor driving forces for new materials
technology.


This symposium intends to focus on the latest advances in the development of new or improved materials for

hydrogen storage
including both applied and fundamental research.


In recent years, the scope of ca
ndidates for hydrogen storage materials has expanded greatly, from

traditional metal hydrides to
complex hydrides and chemical hydrides. Novel systems from H
-
storage also

comprise highly porous carbons, metal organic
frameworks and
nanoscaffold

hybrid mate
rials. The use of

advanced synthetic routes allows tailoring materials microstructures from
bulk crystalline to amorphous state

and nanostructures. Computational
modelling

and simulations are having an increasing impact
not only on

the description of physi
cal properties of known materials, but also on the prediction of novel crystal

structures, and
reaction paths. They are also used to predict the
behaviour

of hydrogen storage tanks based

on these materials and to optimize the
tank design.


The scope of
this symposium is to bring together experts in the fields of materials and system development

for hydrogen storage. The
conference should give the state
-
of
-
the
-
art in these fields, show advantages and

disadvantages of the different storage materials
and te
chniques and reveal still remaining material issues to

be solved.


Hot topics to be covered by the symposium:



Advanced characterisation techniques



Computational modelling of processes relevant to



solid state hydrogen storage



Hydrogen physisorption

on porous materials



Low dimensional architectures as nanoparticles,



thin films, hydrides in nanoscaffolds



Bulk nanostructural materials as metal and



complex hydrides, composites



Hydrogen storage tank development, tests and

demonstration

Introduction and scope:


This symposium aims to join the research community working in paper based devices such as transistors, electrochromics, senso
rs or
thin film batteries, among others, posing an innovative vision for new concepts and applications. This includes topics from n
ew
materials synthesis and new processing techniques.


Paper Electronics represent a relative new and radical concept that aims to combine the use of paper as a part of electronic
components or devices. This concept is radically different of the conventio
nal Electronic Paper, where a display shows information,
being at the same time flexible and bendable as normal paper. So, the big challenge is to engineer paper in order to allow it
s usage
on electronic devices, acting either as substrate or even as an ac
tive part of it.

This symposium tries to bring together the research community dealing with pap
er manufacturing aiming their fun
ctionalization, but
also scientists dealing with conventional electronic materials trying to adapt them and the processing tech
niques to be used in
combination with paper.

So, the scope of the symposium includes new technologies for paper manufacturing (control fibbers size, porosity, fillers, et
c), new
paper coatings (organic, inorganic or hybrid), paper surface f
un
ctionalizatio
n (plasma or gas treatments, for instance) but also
introduction of new materials (conductors, semiconductor insulators, electrochromic, batteries electrodes) and innovative che
ap
manufacturing technologies on large area (
printing

and roll
-
to
-
roll processe
s). This will extend the concept of printed electronics.
Then these processes must be fully compatible with heterogeneous integration of several functions to produce a more complex
and/or autonomous devices with great added value respect to traditional sol
utions.

Introduction and scope:


Modern composite materials to be created for various industrial applications such as space industry, aeronautics, automobile
production, power engineering, machine building, biomedicine, food and environment play a great role in ou
r life. Investigation of
new kinds of materials for reinforcing of composite materials in the form of nanoparticles and nanofibers, using of knitted a
nd woven
materials, development of modern technologies of composite materials production open the new chal
lenges for research and
development of this class of materials from one side and find new fields of their application from another side. So the main
theme of
our symposium devoted the discussion of the main achievements in the field of production, characte
rization, measuring of various
properties of wide class of composite materials.


The development of materials science during last 50
-
60 years is inseparably linked with the creation of composite materials consist of
two or more distinct components with in
terfaces to be distinguished by chemical composition, structure and physical and
mechanical characteristics but at the same time together forming the new structure of material with the principally new usefu
l
complex of physical and mechanical and performan
ce properties.

Only on the base of composite materials (natural, for example, metal eutectic and synthetic such as reinforced heterogenous
inorganic and organic materials) it became possible the production of high temperature and high
-
strength details and

constructions
with high thermal and electrical conductivity, unique magnetic and tribotechnical properties. Composite materials can be
characterized by various complex of functional properties. Manufacturing of the products from composite materials is rea
lized by the
means of solid and liquid phase technologies, chemical and physical sputtering and various ways of deposition and ect.

The program of our symposium will cover the detailed discussion of the problems concerning the composite materials developm
ent
and the manufacturing of the products from these materials: from the theory to the ways of their practical realization.

The unique advantages of composite materials such as high strength, high stiffness, long fatigue life, low density, light wei
ght,
a
daptability to the intended function of the structure and many others will be discussed during symposium activity. Symposium
topics
concern various classes of composite materials such as composites reinforced by particles, fibers and woven structures. Furt
hermore
various areas of application of metal
-
, ceramic, polymer
-
, carbon based composites and new possibilities of their applications in
energy production, machine building, biomedicine and ect. will also be the themes of round tables. Special time will b
e devoted to
innovative researches, to the questions of technology transfer and international cooperation in the field of composite materi
als. One

Introduction and scope:


The movement to technological platforms beyond standard CMOS and the creation of new materials sets beyond silicon is an
imperative challenge for the foundation of the next generation of products for Information and Communication (ICT) applicatio
ns.
Organi
c and Carbon based spintronics meets these challenging requirements by combining naturally downscalable materials with low
energy consumption information processing via Spintronic effects.


The advancement of organic semiconductors over the past decade ha
s been spectacular. Numerous new materials based on small
molecule or polymer semiconductors have been developed, and Europe has achieved and is maintaining a particularly strong
position both in the industrial and the fundamental research. Display product
s based on OLEDs (organic light emitting diodes) have
already become available to consumers and organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices are challenging existing commercial applications
.
New fields like electric memories for non
-
volatile data storage and organic

field effect transistors (OFETs), featuring a convincing and
high quality presence on the scientific scene, are on the verge of joining this race.

On the other hand, Carbon based materials like graphene and CNT are challenging nowadays the whole batch of

ICT materials, given
the enormous richness of physical properties and extremely attractive application features.

The entry of these materials into the field of Spintronics represents a relatively new and by no doubts extremely fascinating

field,
encompas
sing in a most striking way important features of the applications listed above. Spintronics takes full advantage of not only

the charge but also the spin of the electron and features an exciting combination of the use of quantum effects on the nanosc
ale f
or
information processing and storage with the use of electronics to create an output signal. Concluding, spingtronic and relate
d effects
in Organic and Carbon based materials are expected to play a significant role in the post
-
CMOS electronics leading to
conceptually
new solutions in areas like memories, processing, especially regarding ultra
-
low power logic, and sensors.

Introduction and scope:


The symposium will be focused on smart and responsive materials for engineering of connective tissues. Nowadays biomaterials
play
an enabling role in regenerative medicine in treatment of many diseases of connective tissues. They provide 3D scaffolds and

artificial extracellular matrix environments to support tissue regeneration. These materials should be not only biocompatible

but also
smart and responsive to enhance cells attachment, proliferation, and differentiation to engineer and form new tissue. Th
erefore, the
major objectives of the symposium is to provide opportunity to scientists, researchers and industrial participants to discuss

the current
stage of biomaterials used in tissue engineering of the connective tissue and to define new directions fo
r future development in this
field.



Tissue engineering (TE) is a prominent tool in regenerative medicine. Tissue engineering apply biological, chemical, and engi
neering
principles toward the repair, restoration, or regeneration of living tissue by using

biomaterials, cells, and factors alone or in
combination Future advances in TE will depend on the development of “smart” and responsible biomaterials that actively

Introduction and scope:


ZnO is considered as outstandingly prospective material for developing series of electronic and optoelectronic devices. The
symposium is dedicated to ZnO material science problems on the way to the nearest and future applications.


The aim of this symposium is to bring together scientists in order to represent current researches and developments in the fi
eld of ZnO,
from bulk material to nanostructures. The absence of industrial applications of ZnO in electronics and optoelectronic
s is the subject
of serious discussions about further directions of research and development of this well
-
known wide gap semiconductor material
investigated for more than 80 years. Some exciting papers were reported in scientific journals, without leading
so far to actual
applications of ZnO in fields of electronics, optoelectronics and spintronics. The situation is complicated by material scien
ce issues,
namely difficulties with p
-
type control, determination of defects type, doping, stresses and crystal qu
ality of films, effect of ambient
media, surface phenomena, annealing procedures etc. It remains necessary to choose directions of the forthcoming researches i
n
order to create technological prerequisites for industrial fabrication of competitive ZnO
-
based

devices. For that, scientific exchanges
and discussions appear significant to identify reasons preventing applications of ZnO in the fields cited above. The symposiu
m will
focus on the fundamental understanding of growth processes of ZnO films and structu
res, the role of point defects and impurities,
electrical and optical properties and priority applications of ZnO in electronics, optoelectronics and spintronics.

Introduction and
scope:


Improvement of materials for PEMFC and SOFC applications involves the crucial issues of durability, chemical stability and co
nductivity
of solid electrolytes, reactivity of electrocatalysts, electrode
-
electrolyte compatibility. Interesting perspect
ives for the development of
innovative materials can be opened by the synergism between experimental and theoretical approaches.


The aim of this symposium is to highlight recent progress in the design of materials for renewable energy sources application
s in the
field of fuel cells (PEM and SOFC) and to enhance a fruitful interaction between experimental and theoretical approaches.

The issues that are today at the focus of the FC research are: i. improved conductivity and lower working temperature for so
lid oxide
electrolytes, ii. higher temperature and dry operation for polymer membranes, iii. electrodes efficiency and compatibility wi
th
electrolytes.

The technological impact of new and improved materials is strongly linked to the analysis of the theore
tical aspects involved in the
aforementioned topics. On the other hand, the experimental approach, encompassing the various aspects of preparation and
structural characterization of state
-
of
-
the
-
art and model systems, constitutes the necessary complement o
f theoretical analysis in: i.
providing data on local and long
-
range structure, also in operative conditions, ii. submitting questions to theoreticians, iii. validating the
theoretical forecasts.

The symposium will be devoted to address theoretical aspect
s, involving structural modeling and conduction mechanism, that are
essential for a deeper knowledge of the fundamental processes ruling the

behaviour

of FC materials and to promote a closer
collaboration between theoreticians and experimentalists, with th
e final aim of establishing synergic collaborations for the design and
synthesis of innovative FC materials.


The envisaged subjects of discussion and possible collaborations are:



simulation of local structure of electrolytes



theoretical analysis of the
conduction of ionic species, specifically protons and O2
-




theoretical analysis of electrode reactions and reactants exchange



long
-
range and local structural characterization



design and synthesis of new polymeric membranes



design and synthesis of new solid

oxide electrolytes



design and synthesis of composite inorganic
-
organic electrolytes



structural analysis of the electrode
-
electrolyte interface

Hot topics to be covered by the symposium:



Modeling and design of innovative materials



Modeling of conduction
mechanism



Materials for Fuel Cells (PEMFC and SOFC)

◦ Electrodes and electrocatalysts

◦ Polymeric membranes operating at low humidity or dry

Introduction and scope:

Research infrastructures (RIs) are destined to be hubs of activity for pursuing R&D at the
frontier of scientific knowledge and innovation. This symposium will provide a platform for the
presentation of excellent results obtained at infrastructures offerin
g nano and micro
fabrication, nanometrology and characterization, nanosafty testing and hydrogen and fuel
cell technologies. The aims hereby are to:



demonstrate the innovative relevance of cutting egde nano and micro
technologies



present the latest advance
s obtained by international cooperation



highlight progress towards ‘safer by design’ nanomaterials



stimulate problem solving discussions to address technological bottlenecks



open opportunities for cooperation between existing and new RIs

The sessions of
the symposium will be based on the following themes:

Nanofabrication:

open access to nano

structuring and fabrication technologies and
expertise is showing particular relevance for innovation in the areas of health, optics and
photonics and futuristic ICT applications. Such advances are facilitated by international cooperation leading to the d
evelopment of
new processes and the creation of functional structures and devices using e.g. nano or micro structuring, thin film, or repli
cation
technologies and the associated characterization technologies.

Nanomaterials:

assessing the safety and biologi
cal and environmental impact as part of the design phase of nanomaterials, which
due to their small size and large surface area, can interact with living systems and the environment in completely different
ways than
their molecular or bulk counterparts, is

vital to ensuring regulatory and consumer acceptance of new materials, products and
processes.

Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies:

significant progress in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies is dependent upon the availability
of technical research facili
ties. To overcome scientific and technical bottlenecks, a close interdisciplinary cooperation is needed to
support the development and research at all levels in the hydrogen and fuel cell subject. Nano
-

and mico technologies may also
have an impact on hydr
ogen and fuel cell development through new technologies and/or ideas.

Computer data services

such as knowledge management systems under development across each of the three research areas
listed above which may greatly assist the choice of material, proces
s and process parameters, as well as facilitating data mining
and meta
-
analysis.

Regional, National and European Research Infrastructures for advanced materials and nanotechnology.

In addition to the scientific
presentations, research infrastructures are i
nvited to present details of their services and the specific ways in which they serve users.
Opportunities for cooperation between infrastructures will be discussed.


This symposium is organized by the Karlsruhe Nano Micro Facility KNMF, the FP 7 European

Infrastructure projects EUMINAfab, H2FC
and QualityNano, and the Central European project Nanoforce.

Hot topics to be covered by the symposium:



Regional, National (also from nan
-
EU) and European
Research Infrastructures for advanced materials and
nanotechnology



Utilization of micro and nano technologies for functional
structures and devices



Characterization of nanomaterials, structures and devices



Safety assessment and reliability of materials, technologies
and processes and alternative testing m
ethods
