XXXI Solid State Physics and Materials Science Conference, Thessaloniki, September 20-23, 2015
Invited Speakers 
Plenary Speaker 
The aim of this annual conference is to provide a forum for the discussion of current  experimental and theoretical issues in solid state physics & materials science. An important task of the conference is to encourage and promote interaction among  senior and junior scientists from the academia and research institutions.   To encourage young students’ participation three awards have been defined for high  quality work based on their posters or oral presentations. 
The topics that will be discussed include 1.    Photonics & optoelectronics (01) 2.    Structural, mechanical & optical properties of condensed matter (02) 3.    Electronic transport, semiconductors & devices (03) 4.    Magnetism, superconductivity & strongly corellated systems (04) 5.    Nanoscale, surface & interface science (05) 6.    Inhomogeneous materials, composite materials, polymers, biomaterials (06) 7.    Interdisciplinary solid state physics (07)
The Conference program includes plenary, keynote, invited and contributed talks as  well as poster presentations. A video projector & a laptop (PowerPoint ready) will be  available.
