The International Conference on Energy and Healthcare Materials (ICEHM 2020) will be held on Sunday- Wednesday, 2-5 February 2020 in Sydney, Australia. The ICEHM is proudly co-hosted by The University of New South Wales, Queensland University of Technology, Griffith University, The University of Queensland, University of Technology Sydney, and Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Humanity’s top problems relate to energy and healthcare. The radical world changes need cross-field innovations in energy and healthcare technologies to power greater futures. Materials and chemical science and engineering are at the core of transformational breakthroughs at the global energy and healthcare frontiers. The ICEHM will be fortunate to gather the bright minds of the two fields from academic, industry and broader backgrounds to share the cutting-edge research and inspirational opinions, and to catalyse exciting opportunities of cross-disciplinary collaborations.

We hope to see you in Sydney in February 2020!

Conference Topics

We welcome all contributions that are of significant value to the future of energy and healthcare materials. The ICEHM will cover, but not be limited to, the following research topics.

  • Energy devices for flexible, wearable, miniature or multifunctional applications
  • Thermal energy processes: phase change materials, cold/hot storage, thermoelectric, etc.
  • Light responsive materials and devices in photovoltaics, solar cells, photocatalysis, energy-efficient display, etc.
  • Green catalysis and materials for carbon cycle, nitrogen fixation and waste reforming
  • Intelligent materials fabrication and device manufacturing
  • Computational materials design for energy processes
  • Low-dimensional functional materials
  • New concept energy chemistry and materials

Healthcare Materials

  • Materials for drug delivery
  • Bio-imaging probes and biosensors for disease diagnosis
  • Bio-nano interactions and nanotoxicology
  • Bioinspired materials
  • Nanomedicine and nanodiagnostics
  • Materials for tissue regeneration
  • Additive manufacturing in medicine
  • Translational healthcare materials and clinical challenges
