We are all consumers of next generation technologies that are constantly pushing new limits in the physical, chemical and biological space. SMST 2020 seeks to capture the changing landscape of these technologies in the areas of health, energy and environment. The theme of the conference is focused on the fundamentals and applications of the underlying materials that enable the realization of technology. In particular, the conference wishes to unravel the innovative experimental and theoretical approaches, emerging trends and key challenges related to the structure, property, form, behavior and function of smart materials and their impact on the society at large. The conference promises to be an ideal venue for engaging in lively and stimulating discussions among a diverse group of researchers. It will also serve as a great platform for young students, early career scientists, mid-career and established academicians and industry experts to share novel ideas and knowledge dedicated to the advancement of science and technology. We are equal stakeholders in shaping the future directions of our research community for a better tomorrow. The sessions will be a good mix of keynote, plenary, invited, and oral talks by both renowned and emerging scientists followed by ample time for networking over poster session. There will be many awards for outstanding scientists, early-career researchers and students. We hope you enjoy your time in Goa and we look forward to seeing you soon!
