The 36th XXXVI Pan-Hellenic conference on Solid-State Physics and Materials Science will be held from the 26th to the 28th of September, 2022 at the premises of the Univeristy of Crete and the Foundation for Research and Technology, Hellas at Heraklion, Crete.

About The conference

perovskite crystal structure The Pan-Hellenic Conference on Solid-State Physics and Materials Science is an annual conference aimed to bring together all researchers in Greece and Cyprus who are working in this field. Previous conferences were held in Athens (2021), Patras (2019), Nicosia (2018), Ioannina (2016), Thessaloniki (2015), Heraklion (2014), Athens (2013), Patras (2012), Limassol (2011), Ioannina (2010), Thessaloniki (2009); the first conference of the series was organized in Thessaloniki in 1982.

We welcome contributions in any subfield of Solid-State Physics and Materials science, such as (but not limited to) Biophysics, Ceramics, Colloids, Computational/Theoretical Materials Science, Computational Physics, Carbononics, Energy, Graphene, Magnetic Materials, Mechanics, Micro- and Nanoelectronics, Nanoscience, Nanotechnology, Non-linear Physics, Spintronics, Superconductivity, Surface Science, Two-dimensional materials, Optoelectronics, Photonics, Plasmonics, Polymers, Quantum science, Semiconductors, Solid-state Chemistry.

Practical Information

  • Heraklion airport has direct connections to most major European cities during the summer.
  • Two ferries depart from Pireaus every evening and arrive in Heraklion early in the morning the next day.
  • Crete can also be reached through Chania or Sitia airports, which are about 150 km west and east of Heraklion, respectively.
