International Symposium on Inorganic and Environmental Materials 2018

June 17 @ 8:00 am - June 21 @ 5:00 pm UTC+1

The International Symposium on Inorganic and Environmental Materials 2018 (ISIEM2018) is organized by the Society of Inorganic Materials, Japan (SIMJ) and Ghent University, Belgium. It will be held in Ghent – Belgium from June 17 – 21, 2018 at Het Pand – convention centre.

Scope of the conference are the newest developments in inorganic materials and their production with an emphasis on the environmental impact. Researchers will present fundamental concepts alongside cutting-edge developments on a broad range of topics including nanotechnology, energy related materials, cement/gypsum and lime, sustainable chemistry, catalysis and novel processing techniques.


  • Energy-related materials (SC, PV, batteries)
  • Sustainable chemistry and catalysis (Photocatalysis, flow chemistry, catalysis, process technology) Materials
  • Environment-related Materials
  • Functional Materials
  • Composites
  • Biomaterials
  • Cement / Gypsum / Lime
  • Structural Materials (construction and building materials)
  • Nanomaterials – Nanotechnology
  • Materials processing (Sintering, Forming, Powder, Bulk, Thin film etc.)

We are more than happy to announce that Prof. David Cole-Hamilton, Prof. Marcus Niederberger, Prof. Zeger Hens, Prof. John Kilner, Prof. Oliver Kappe, Prof. Fabien Grasset and Prof. Yoshiyuki Kojima will give an extended lecture at ISIEM 2018.

Detailed information about these talks can be found at the ISIEM 2018 website.

The symposium was previously organized in Eindhoven (NKV) and in Rennes (UR1) drawing about 250 and 300 participants.

We sincerely hope you will attend ISIEM2018.

Prof. Klaartje De Buysser (Ghent University – Belgium) – Prof. Isabel Van Driessche (Ghent University – Belgium)
