EITA-New Materials 2020 -- The 2020 EITA Conference on New Materials, Nanotechnology, New Energy and Sustainable Smart Manufacturing (or EITA-EITC 2020, the 17th Emerging Information and Technology Conference), coordinated by the Emerging Information and Technology Association (EITA), is an international forum. It will be held at The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam, Hong Kong on Thursday-Friday, July 9-10, 2020. 

The conference theme for the EITA-New Materials 2020 is "Recent Research Advances in New Materials, Nanotechnology, Healthcare, New Energy and Sustainable Smart Manufacturing: Challenges, Opportunities and Future Directions." This two-day day conference brings together the brightest and most experienced experts in the fields for an immersive two-day of learning, discussion, and connection. 

The main objectives of the EITA-New Materials 2020 are:

  • to provide a platform for researchers, engineers, academicians as well as industrial professionals from all over the world to present their research results and development activities in "New Materials, Nanotechnology, New Energy and Sustainable Smart Manufacturing",
  • to provide opportunities for the venture community to discuss, understand and evaluate the state-of-the art in cutting edge business and technology solutions,
  • to bring together emerging and established entrepreneurs, current industry leaders, and policymakers to discuss innovation and disruption over the next decade.

We are pleased to invite you to attend the EITA-New Materials 2020 and submit proposals (invited talks only) for papers, panels, demonstrations, workshops, corporate showcases/demos, and SIG discussions. The Conference Review Policy requires that each proposal will be peer-reviewed by for inclusion in the conference program, and CD-ROM proceedings.
