Fourth Announcement

Dear Colleagues,

Already after two weeks we wait you in Tartu! The FM&NT-2017 starts on April 24 with welcome party and excursions in the new building of the Institute of Physics (Physicum), University of Tartu. The conference will be held at the Dorpat conference centre in Tartu, Estonia in April, 25 – 27, 2017.

Oral presentations

The preliminary program is already available, check
NB! Small changes +/- one hour are still possible!

Poster presentations

For posters we have special stands, where the posters sized exactly A0 (841 x 1189 mm) or A1 (841 x 594 mm) format can be hanged.
If you will use different size, you will have problems hanging your poster on those stands. Therefore, if your poster is already printed in different size, let us ( know ASAP (definitely before April 20), so that we can find a different place for your poster.
The timing of posters sessions you find at


Full papers will be reviewed and published in the Proceedings of Estonian Academy of Science. It is a journal, indexed in the Thomson Reuters Web of Science database. Each full-delegate can publish one full paper.
We strongly encourage you to submit the full papers (only one full paper per participant) before or at least during the conferene (24.-27. April 2017).
The official deadline for submitting full paper texts is May 7, 2017.
The length of your paper should not exceed 8 pages. Normally, in one page you will have ca 3700-5000 symbols.

Please upload the compressed zip-file of your full paper, intended for publication in “Proceedings of the Estonian Academy of Sciences”, prepared according to format suggestions in Instructions to Authors here: Submission of one full paper is free of charge for FM&NT-2017 participant

Main topics of the conference

· Sustainable energetics
· Functional- and nanomaterials including biomaterials
· Optical materials
· Novel characterisation methods
· Low dimensional systems

Tartu is a modern city with a rich historical heritage and culture. It is the intellectual capital of Estonia. Six month ago the Estonian biggest and most modern museum – Estonian National Museum was opened here. Please read more about it in The Guardian
All FM&NT-2017 delegates will have a great opportunity to visit this museum during conference dinner and excursion on 26. April 2017.

For those, who are not yet registered:

The registration to the conference is still opened, please visit our conference web for registration.
The submission of late abstracts (only for poster presentations) is open until April 21, 2017.
The abstracts will be collected in MS Word (*.doc or *.docx) and *.pdf formats. Templates, abstract submission form and other information regarding the abstracts can be found here:
