This vibrant, intellectually stimulating conference, organized by the top-notch young scientists from around the globe, delivers concentrated frontiers in science and technology of nanomaterials for real-world applications. The attendee gets the full depth and breadth of ideas exchange and networking, avoiding the confusion of a typical, overwhelmingly large, material-science conference. And all that – in a magical atmosphere of the pre-Christmas Paris.

Alexandre GumennikIndiana University, USA

A top conference! A rock-solid organization team. An excellent program. It’s nice, fun and very instructive. A must!

Jerome TignonSorbonne University & Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, France

Great networking and a lot of wine!

Pavlos LagoudakisUniversity of Southampton & Scoltech, UK

What is the best scientific, social and scientifically social option for a mid-December?
The obvious answer is SNAIA – leading topical conference, which welcomes new ideas, promotes new collaborations, gives opportunities to young scientists, and… just lovely to attend. I go there 🥳 !

Pavel GinzburgTel Aviv University, Israel

An excellent interdisciplinary conference with top speakers and "intense" social program. Worth attending again!

Oleg YazyevEcole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne

SNAIA is an impressing conference with high level keynotes and invited speakers. Each year is a pleasure to attend Snaia in this very beautiful venue in the middle of Paris and to discuss with high level scientists.

Paolo BondavalliThales Research and Technology

I quite enjoyed the conference. The conference covered a broad range of topics in nanomaterials, and the interactions between people from different disciplines were very stimulating. I would like to thank the organizers for their excellent efforts.

From Smart Materials to Smart Things

The STEMM Smart Nanomaterials (SNAIA) Conference Series is a unique, established science-to-technology networking platform covering the most exciting emerging fields in smart technologies. It gives the opportunity to present to, share knowledge with, and establish links between leading experts from academia and industry.

This year, the 4th International SNAIA Conference is moving to a hybrid online-onsite format. Despite the current pandemic crisis, we are keeping our plans for the in-person part of SNAIA2021 in an unchanged format for now. The Government of France is currently enforcing extensive actions to protect the country and keep it safe, and for now we are optimistic that the situation will be resolved by December 2021. We will do everything in our power to ensure participants safety and provide extensive information as it arrives.

At the same time, we understand that many people may still be unable or uncertain about travel. Hence, in parallel, we will provide online streaming and interactive online participation for those who cannot attend the on-site format.
