The second “European Conference on Smart Inorganic Polymers” will be hosted at Uppsala University by the COST action members Sacha Ott and Andreas Orthaber. The conference will be held at the Ångström laboratories, Uppsala University from September 24th – 26th 2015. This Conference provides an excellent platform for all scientists with a focus on inorganic polymers as functional materials. Novel materials incorporating other elements than carbon and hydrogen in the polymer backbone has seen an increased interest over the last decade. Recent developments in this area have put an emphasis on advanced and smart properties and applications extensively tailoring the materials properties by heteroelement incorporation. Moreover, partially substituting carbon based polymers with inorganic polymers can contributed to a sustainable development in this worldwide market for functional polymeric materials. The European COST action CM1302 (Smart Inorganic Polymers) has initiated this conference in 2014 providing an opportunity to disseminate recent achievements within and beyond this network. This international conference aims at gathering world leading experts, rising young investigator to discuss, share and advance efforts in this field.In 2015, we aim to have a focus of the conference on inorganic polymers with interesting opto-electronics properties for potential application with molecular and plastic electronics. We have invited highly respected researchers from different relevant fields with an outstanding and documented expertise. Moreover we have invited one representative from an industrial research facility (IBM) working on different aspects of molecular, inorganic, and organic electronic applications.• Zhenan Bao, Prof., Stanford University, Shriram Center, Department of Chemical Engineering.
