cimtec Pietro Vincenzini - General Chair (cimtec) ongoing electronics, smart textiles, conferences, event
Intensive research carried out worldwide for creating higher forms of materials, structures and systems by providing them with “life” functions, resulted in a relatively high level of technology readiness with several applications now emerging, demonstrating that smart materials technologies have matured well beyond the conceptual stage. Widespread use of nanotechnology concepts and tools and availability of multiscale computational models coupled with the exponential growth of computing capability and the merging of materials science and engineering with biological information, are fuelling the rate of advancement of the field. Nevertheless further substantial developments are required in the understanding of convergences of materials, electronics and biological systems, to meet relevant needs for present and foreseeable applications. The several Symposia featured by CIMTEC 2012 - 4th International Conference “Smart Materials, Structures and Systems” will cover outstanding areas of the subject from the molecular nanoscales to large complex integrated systems. The Conference Committees are pleased to invite you to foster progress in the field by contributing to discussions within the frames of what promises to be an exciting meeting, and to enjoy the immense, unique, artistic heritage and wonderful landscape of Tuscany.
