Scope
SCTE provides a forum for discussion on fundamental and applied research in the areas of the solid state chemistry, physics and materials science of compounds containing d- and f- elements.
On this occasion, SCTE will celebrate its twentieth edition, after previous meetings from Paris (1965) to Genoa (2014).
