Nanocomposites for Space Applications

A Stream on “Nanocomposites for Space Applications”
as part of the 7th Annual International Conference on Physics
22-25 July 2019, Athens, Greece
Sponsored by the Athens Journal of Sciences

The Physics Unit of ATINER, will hold a Stream on “Nanocomposites for Space Applications” as part of the 7th Annual International Conference on Physics, 22-25 July 2019, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Sciences.

Due to the fast development of the space industry, nanocomposites for extraterrestrial applications became highly demanded. Nanocomposites for space applications include materials with high radiation withstanding and absorbing capabilities, corrosion in extra-terrestrial environment (Martian, Venusian, and satellites of the giant planets), thermal-isolation coatings with prolonged lifetime, drugs for treatment space-flight related disorders, caused, for example, by weightlessness, and a number of other materials. The multiplicity of the international research projects in the area of space exploration serves the evidence that scientific results in this area are highly demanded. The goal of this stream is to experience exchange of ideas and information on nanotechnology-related educational issues among universities and research labs, and to establish scientific and technical connections with European and all-over the world partners, improving the efficiency of the research and development in the area of nanocomposites, deepening the academic knowledge on the matter.

The problematic targeted by this stream covers, but is not limited to, applying plasma technologies for creating nanocomposites, different materials, including smart nanocomposite materials for space-related technologies, such as sensors, protecting screens, lubricants, fuel additives, radiation stable materials, biocomposites. Participants from academic universities, government scientific laboratories and industrial companies are welcome to this conference stream. You may participate as presenter of one paper, chair or/and organizer of a session, or observer.

Fee structure information is available on

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized, including a pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine-tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Myceanae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, a day trip to Delphi, and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.

Please submit an abstract (email only) to:, using the abstract submission form by 10 June 2019 to: Dr. Kirill Levine, Associate Professor, Department of General & Technical Physics, St. Petersburg Mining University, Russia or Dr. Alexander Mustafaev, Professor of Physics & Head, Department of General and Technical Physics, Head, Plasma Nanotechnology Laboratory, Saint Petersburg Mining University, Russia. Please include: Title of Paper, Full Name (s), Current Position, Institutional Affiliation, an email address and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission. Decisions are reached within 4 weeks.

If your submission is accepted, you will receive information on registration deadlines and paper submission requirements. If you want to participate without presenting a paper, i.e. lead a stream, chair a session, review papers to be included in the conference proceedings or books, contribute to the editing of a book, or any other contribution, please send an email  to Dr. Gregory T. Papanikos, President, ATINER (

The association was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER.  Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into 6 Divisions, 37 Units and 6 Centers.  Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.

Academics and Researchers are more than welcome to become members and to contribute to ATINER’s objectives. If you would like to become a member, please download the relevant form (membership form). For more information on how to become a member, please send an email to:
