The conference is a continuation of the ICFM series of conferences organized by the Materials
Science Centre at IIT Kharagpur. The primary objective of this conference is to exchange knowledge
among researchers, practicing engineers, and technologists about the state-of-the-art in functional
materials and their applications. Motivating young scientists, budding technologists, and
entrepreneurs in these fields to enrich their knowledge by interacting with their peers in their
respective areas is a prime goal of the conference.
