Attention: Due to rapidly escalating health concerns relating to the spread of the coronavirus disease(CONVID-19), please do not book tickets, accommodation or register for the meeting until further notice. We will keep you informed if it postponed.

The EMN Meetings grew out of a small workshop series that began in 2008 at a traditional villa in Orlando, Florida. Over the next three years, six additional successful workshops were organized on various focus topics in materials science, and grouped under the title of “Villa Conference” in honor of the original 2008 Orlando meeting. The Villa Conference series has grown rapidly beyond the traditional villa setting, continuing to attract highly-quality contributions from members of the international scientific and engineering communities. In 2012 the first Conference with a broader theme of Energy, Materials and Nanotechnology was held. We currently have meetings in Americas(USA, Mexico, Cuba), Asia (Japan, China, Korea, Dubai, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Bali Island ), Europe (Netherlands, Croatia, Spain, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, France, Malta, Turkey), New Zealand, Australia, Mauritius and all over the world.

The 2020 EMN Krakow meeting will be held from September 14 to 18, 2020.

Krakow, a vibrant city, proud of its long and glorious history, rich heritage, and architectural beauties. For many centuries the capital of the Poland, nowadays it remains the southern Poland’s metropolis and the seat of the Malopolska provincial government. Its historical glories, numerous landmarks, colorful festivals, and atmospheric scenery make Krakow a premier destination in Central and Eastern Europe. 

We look forward to meeting you in Krakow.
