Understanding the size-dependent properties of materials is the most challenging issue in the advanced materials science. To a great extent this is a result of the technological requirements concerning the development of materials with controlled properties, as well as of the recent progress in materials science, nanotechnology and computational chemistry.

The first workshop of the SizeMat series was devoted to size-dependent phenomena as a promising way to control the materials properties. The thematic area of SIZEMAT-1 comprised materials forming the basis of modern technologies: materials for clean energy storage and catalysts/sorbents for environmental protection.

The present workshop (SizeMat-2) will highlight recent advances in experimental and theoretical methods to examine materials properties. The focus will be on the materials characteristics at molecular and cluster level and their relation to the properties of the bulk phase. The workshop will also cover materials characterization techniques like spectroscopic and computational methods.
