About the Conference

The 30th Pan-hellenic conference on Solid-State Physics and Materials Science will be held from the 21st to the 24th of September, 2014 at the premises of the Foundation for Research and Technology, Hellas at Heraklion, Crete.

The Pan-Hellenic Conference on Solid-State Physics and Materials Science is an annual conference aimed to bring together all researchers in Greece and Cyprus who are working in this field. Previous conferences were held in Athens, Patras, Limassol, Ioannina, Thessaloniki and Heraklion; the first conference of the series was organized in Thessaloniki in 1982.

We welcome contributions in any subfield of Solid-State Physics and Materials science, such as (but not limited to) Biophysics, Ceramics, Colloids, Computational/Theoretical Materials Science, Computational Physics, Carbononics, Energy, Low-dimensional materials, Magnetic Materials, Mechanics, Micro- and Nanoelectronics, Nanoscience, Nanotechnology, Non-linear Physics, Spintronics, Superconductivity, Surface Science, Optoelectronics, Photonics, Plasmonics, Polymers, Quantum science, Semiconductors, Solid-state Chemistry.

The organizing committee of the conference includes Drs. N. T. Pelekanos (chair), N. Katsarakis, G. Kopidakis, A. Lappas, I. Perakis, I. N. Remediakis and M. Vamvakaki.

The Conference is sponsored by the University of Crete, the Institute for Electronic Structure and Laser of FORTH and the Technological Educational Institute of Crete.


Registration fee is 120 euros (50 euros for students) if paid before August 14. Late registration fee will be 150 euros (65 euros for students).

Abstracts should take at most one A4 page. Please one of the following templates: LaTeX, OpenOffice, DOC, DOC 2, pdf.

Abstracts should be sent by email (preferably in pdf format) to fsk30@materials.uoc.gr. Files should be named name_a_b.pdf where "name" is the last name of the presenting author, "b" should be "p" for poster presentation or "o" for oral presentation. Due to program limitations, it is possible that some abstracts marked with an "o" by the authors might be changed to "p" by the Committee. Code "a" in the abstract name should be one of the following numbers:

  1. Photonics and optoelectronics.
  2. Structural-dynamical and mechanical properties of condensed matter.
  3. Strongly correlated electronic systems, magnetism and superconductivity.
  4. Surfaces, nanomaterials, and low-dimensional systems.
  5. Polymers, organic materials, biomaterials.
  6. Ceramics, composites, minerals and metals.
  7. Interdisciplinary applications.
Abstract submission is now closed. Exceptionally, few high-quality last-minute poster requests might be accepted provided that there is room in the poster session.


The program includes keynote talks (K, 40 min), invited talks (I, 25 min), contributed talks (15 min) and posters (max A0 portrait). All presentations will be in English.

The program booklet can be downloaded here.

The Book of Abstracs (large file, ca. 12 MB) includes all accepted abstracts in alphabetical order according to the last name of the presenting author, sorted by type of presentation (oral/poster). Furthermore, posters are sorted according to topics (see section Registration).

All talks will be at the main amphitheater of FORTH. Posters will be on the first floor corridor of FORTH. Cofee, lunch and evening drinks will be server at the same area and will be free of charge for registered participants.

Poster awards

A prize is given to the best two student poster presentations from each poster session. The award consists of a certificate and a book sponsored by the Crete University Press. The posters will be reviewed by the award committee.

Satellite workshop

As part of the Conference, a brief mentoring workshop on "Technological Innovation and Entrepreneurship" will take place on Wednesday, Sep 24, afternoon. The workshop is organized by the Hellenic Society for the Science and Technology of the Condensed Matter (HSSTCM); the main presentation will be given by Dr. G. Vekinis. If you are interested to participate in this workshop, please register by emailing HSSTCM.

Practical Information

The conference will take place at the main building of the Foundation for Research and Technology, Hellas (FORTH), which is located about 8 km southwest of Heraklion, close to the village of Voutes, the University of Crete and the University Hospital. Check here for information on how to reach FORTH.

Information for presenters of oral contributions

  1. We prefer that you use the computer of the amphitheater for your presentation. Please transfer your pdf or powerpoint file to the computer at least ten minutes before the beginning of the session.
  2. If you would like to use your own computer, it might be a good idea to check that your computer connects properly to the projector before the session begins.
  3. Technical assistance will be available before the beginning of each session.
  4. Please make sure that you conclude your talk early enough so that there is room for questions and discussion within your time slot.

Information for presenters of poster contributions

  1. Please find the number of your poster by looking at the program.
  2. Authors with poster numbers 1 to 72, please place your poster on Sunday afternoon on the board with the same number. Please remove your poster by Monday evening.
  3. Authors with poster numbers 73 and higher, please place your poster on Tuesday morning on the board with the same number. Please remove your poster by Wednesday noon.

The hotels shown in this page offer discounts for visitors of the University (the prices might have changed as this page was created three years ago). Please check also popular hotel reservation sites such as booking.com, tripadvisor.com or all-hotels.gr.

Heraklion airport has direct connections to most major European cities during the summer; see, for example, here. Minoan and ANEK ferries usually depart from Pireaus in the evening and arrive in Heraklion early in the morning the next day. Crete can also be reached through Chania airport or harbour, located 150 km west of Heraklion (2 to 3 hours by bus depending on route and traffic).

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
