Welcome from Chairman of IFFM 2017
The International Forum on Functional Materials (IFFM) is held biennial year and attempts to share in the latest innovations, advances and future multidisciplinary research and development in functional materials with primary focus on the connection between fundamental science, engineering applications and commercialization of the materials. The symposium will offer material researchers and users an invaluable opportunity for new knowledge across the whole spectrum of functional materials. By integrating fundamental science and advanced technology in functional materials, the IFFM 2015 together with 5th International Symposium on Chemical & Biological Detection (ISCBD-5), the 4rd International Symposium on Medical Diagnosis using Bionano Sensor, the 6th International Symposium on Plasma Biosciences (ISPB2017-6) and the 3rd International Conference Tech-connection of Advanced Materials (TAM2017) will be the leading edge in the research area of functional materials.

In addition, the 1st International Symposium on Energy Conversion and Storage Materials (ISECS-1) will also feature the state of the art scientific developments in the field of energy conversion and storage, and bring together researchers working in many related research areas to foster international collaborations and exchange of new ideas.
More than 400 important papers on these various topics will be presented, and more than 500 scientists are expected to participate this ‘IFFM 2017’ from Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Netherlands, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, UK, USA, and Korea. I would like to acknowledge the contributions of all cooperative scientists and organizations, and also to the all participants from various countries.

I am looking forward to seeing you soon at Korea.

Sincerely Yours,
Tae-Hyun Nam
