2015 North American Solid State Chemistry Conference

(May 22-24)

Scope of Conference

Solid State Chemistry is intimately related to materials science, combining the synthesis of materials with the investigation of their reactivity and physical properties. The importance of solid state (or condensed matter) research cannot be overstated, as the elucidation of the structure-property relationship takes the central role in the materials design. Our research community provides critical advances in the preparation of novel electronic, optical, and magnetic materials, impacting areas of high national priority such as energy security and environmental safety.

NASSCC takes place biennially, alternating with the Gordon Research Conference on Solid State Chemistry. In contrast to the GRC meetings, the NASSCC places a stronger emphasis on oral presentations by students, postdocs, and junior faculty, while preserving the informal character of the GRC. The NASSCC-2015 will be held at Florida State University located in Tallahassee, the capital city of Florida.

Previous NASSCC meetings took place at Texas A&M University (2007), Ohio State University (2009), McMaster University (2011), and Oregon State University (2013). We are glad and honored to continue the tradition of this great meeting, and we invite our friends to the beautiful state of Florida in May of 2015.
