It is with pleasure that we can introduce to you the 14th International Conference on Solid State Chemistry (SSC) that follows those held in Karlovy Vary (1986), Pardubice (1989), Bratislava (1996), Prague (2000), Bratislava (2002), Prague (2004), Pardubice (2006), Bratislava (2008), Prague (2010), Pardubice (2012), Trenčianske Teplice (2014), Prague (2016) and Pardubice (2018).
The conference series was founded by Prof. Frumar as a symposium for scientists working in the field of solid state chemistry, chemistry and physics of novel inorganic materials. New concepts, approaches, fundamental understanding, as well as the application aspects of inorganic materials have been discussed. The conference has become a truly international event with a worldwide geographical distribution of the participants.
The 14th International Conference on Solid State Chemistry will be another of a long row of international conferences founded originally by Prof. Frumar. For many years, these events have been organised jointly by institutions and universities from Czech Republic and Slovakia and become a well-established forum for scientists from all around the world working in the field of solid-state chemistry, chemistry, and physics of novel inorganic materials.
In 2020 the conference will be for the first time organised by FunGlass Centre of the Alexander Dubček University of Trenčín.
We are really honoured by the trust of previous organisers and will do our best to make the conference again a great forum for meeting the scientist from all around the world. We cordially invite you to Trenčín, the Slovak capital of glass research.
Prof. Dušan Galusek
