Third Announcement

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to kindly inform you, that we extended the deadline of abstract submission until March 12th, 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:

For the delegates, who submitted the abstract before initial deadline (01.03.2017), the decision about acceptance of the abstract will be made before March 12, 2017. For the delegates, who will use the extended deadline, the decision about acceptance of the abstract will be made before March 19, 2017.

Also the registration to the conference is still opened, please visit our conference web for registration.

We would like to remind you, that the conference will be held at the
Dorpat conference centre in Tartu, Estonia in April, 24 – 27, 2017.
Main topics of the conference are related to:
· Sustainable energetics
· Functional- and nanomaterials including biomaterials
· Optical materials
· Novel characterisation methods
· Low dimensional systems

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.


Tartu is a modern city with a rich historical heritage and culture. It is the intellectual capital of Estonia. Five 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.
