This conference not only attracts engaging speakers, but it is also organised to offer excellent opportunities for building collaborations. In 2018, following my talk, Prof David Andrews rose up with a question and, since then, we have written several papers and grant applications together. Our collaboration has been recognised with awards from the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Institute of Physics, and it might not have happened without the organizers’ dedication to bringing scientists together, in this beautiful and historic setting.

This vibrant, intellectually stimulating conference, organized by the top-notch young scientists from around the globe, delivers concentrated frontiers in science and technology of nanomaterials for real-world applications. The attendee gets the full depth and breadth of ideas exchange and networking, avoiding the confusion of a typical, overwhelmingly large, material-science conference. And all that – in a magical atmosphere of the pre-Christmas Paris.

A top conference! A rock-solid organization team. An excellent program. It’s nice, fun and very instructive. A must!

Jerome TignonSorbonne University & Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, France

Great networking and a lot of wine!

What is the best scientific, social and scientifically social option for a mid-December?
The obvious answer is CRISTMAS – leading topical conference, which welcomes new ideas, promotes new collaborations, gives opportunities to young scientists, and… just lovely to attend. I go there 🥳 !

An excellent interdisciplinary conference with top speakers and "intense" social program. Worth attending again!

Oleg YazyevEcole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne

Impressing conference with high level keynotes and invited speakers. Each year is a pleasure to attend this conferene in this very beautiful venue in the middle of Paris and to discuss with high level scientists.

I quite enjoyed the conference. The conference covered a broad range of topics in nanomaterials, and the interactions between people from different disciplines were very stimulating. I would like to thank the organizers for their excellent efforts.
