Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is our pleasure and big honour to announce first Symposium on Advanced Technologies and Materials /ATAM 2020/, which will be held in Wroclaw at Polish Centre for Technology Development (ŁUKASIEWICZ-PORT) as a host institution. First of Symposium series will be devoted to hybrids materials and photonic platforms. Symposium will be a unique opportunity to bring together scientists working in different areas – chemist, physicists and engineers, whose main research topic is to develop efficient optical materials, 2D layers and miniaturized photonic devices. Besides the material’s photonic properties, we would like to discuss challenges and chances when it comes to application of hybrids photonic platforms.

The organizer of the meeting is Łukasiewicz Research Network – PORT Polish Center for Technology Development. It is the institute conducting research in the field of material science & engineering and biotechnology. In the ŁUKASIEWICZ – PORT laboratories solutions are developed that are later used by industry and science. The institute works for many Polish companies, start-ups and universities, and at the same time is a partner for international corporations such as Roche, Pfizer, Amgen or LG.

ATAM Symposium is also an exceptional chance for young scientist to meet. Together with regular symposium, we are organizing the young scientist meeting. It is not just one section of the Symposium but the meeting being organised by youth itself. The main idea of this session is to show young scientists  the noteworthy world of photonic and gain their interest in the applied research.
