Smart Materials are designed materials which possess one or more properties which can be significantly changed in controlled fashion by externally applied field such as stress, temperature, electric and magnetic fields. Worldwide, considerable effort is deployed to develop smart materials and structures. Smart Materials like, piezoelectric materials, electrostrictive materials, manetostrictive materials, shape memory materials, smart fluids, smart hydrogels, electrochromic materials, phase change materials, nanomaterials, ceramics, smart textiles build the global market and are increasing business turnover to provide the smarter service to create smart world. The conference aims to disseminate state-of-the-art in smart materials and derivatives of smart material systems- processing, characterization and applications.
