Sol-gel technology is one of the most perspective technologies for creation of materials with specified complex of properties, first of all, the nanomaterials. Ability to control the composition, properties, and nano-architecture of nanosystems puts sol-gel technology in the forefront of the modern Materials Science.
 
The priority of modern materials science in the search for new types of materials is always to obtain good insight into fundamental principles of controlling the properties of organic and inorganic compounds, nanoparticles, films, colloidal systems.
 
The 3rd International Conference of CIS countries “Sol-Gel Synthesis and Investigation of Inorganic Compounds, Functional Hybrid Materials and Disperse Systems” (“Sol-gel-2014”) by a decision of the Institute of Silicate Chemistry of Russian Academy of Sciences and the Organizing Committee will be held on September 8-12, in Suzdal, Russia, 2014. Its organizer is the Institute of Solution Chemistry of RAS, conducting advanced research in this field of science.
 
In the framework of the International Conference "Sol-Gel-2014" will be organized an International Young Scientist School "Sol-gel synthesis of functional nanomaterials".  Lectures of leading world scientists in the field of sol-gel science and technology will form its program.
 
The Organizing Committee and the Institute of Solution Chemistry of RAS invite scientists, specialists, young scientists and all those interested in the problem to take an active part in the work of this scientific event.

VENUE:
The Conference will be held in open air museum of Russian architecture in Suzdal, which is rightly called the pearl of Russia’s Golden Ring. It is located 250 km northeast of Moscow. Suzdal is one of the most beautiful ancient cities of Russia, possessing more than 50 examples of church and secular architecture dating from the mid-12th to the mid-18th century. The fіrst written mention оf Suzdal dates bаck tо the yeаr оf 1024. Historically it was a political and religious center of ancient Russia and now it is a major tourist attraction. The town has won the special prize of UNESCO for the preservation of the historical monuments and developing tourism. Suzdal is officially protected from the industries, and the old architecture and buildings are kept intact. The hilly green town is very seducing, old beautiful churches offer dreaming views. Accompanying persons will be able to take part in excursions to monasteries and museums Suzdal and other cities of the "Golden Ring"
