This symposium pursues creating an international forum of young and creative scientists 
expert in the different disciplines involved in the development of novel smart materials (materials 
chemists, physicists and device engineers) to explore new avenues in emerging fields of applications related to artificial skins, shape memory and electroactive materials. 
The audience will be strongly multidisciplinary. The symposium will count on the representation of young scientists from eleven European countries and some of Europe's most reputable universities. The program will be completed with internationally recognized senior scientists; confirmed plenary speakers are listed below.
