Welcome to ISAFM2

We are delighted to invite you to join the 2nd International Symposium on Advanced Functional Materials (ISAFM2) held as a physical event from 16 to 17 February 2023. Following the success of our inaugural ISAFM event in 2014, ISAFM2 will serve as a platform to promote international networking and collaborations in the field of advanced functional materials.


“Advanced Functional Materials for Sustainable and Greener Applications” is the theme for ISAFM2. Advanced functional materials are the fundamental element in many innovative and disruptive technologies, and they could transform the manufacturing industries and economy when these cutting-edge materials are adopted in commercial applications. In view of the growing number of research and development activities in advanced functional materials, it is timely to reflect on the achievements of the scientific community and share the knowledge in ISAFM2. The symposium offers an opportunity for the participants to disseminate the related knowledge and experiences in the development and application of advanced materials ranging from nanomaterials to smart polymers. You will also have the chance to meet participants from different countries around the world.

With the diverse topics of ISAFM2 covered in this 2-day event via parallel oral sessions and poster presentations, ISAFM2 will be a valuable meeting for you to acquire new knowledge, engage in research discussion, establish new connections, advance your plans for future research as well as share your findings in the special issues dedicated to this symposium.


We look forward to the exciting presentation as well as the productive discussion among the participants. We hope that you will enjoy our purposely designed nature of the symposium program. Welcome again to all the participants and let’s enjoy the symposium altogether in Malaysia.
