Dear Colleagues

We are happy to announce the Smart Composites International School 2023,  on the week starting
from 13th till 19th of August for beginners and from 20th of August till 24th of August for advancers.

The main focus of the School is to provide young scientists the insights into the physics of composite materials for various applications.
The School consists of two sections: for beginners (students) and  advancers (young scientists).
Beginners are going to pump their knowledge and skills in the field of design and characterization of composites based on Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University in Kaliningrad.
As the School is a satellite event to the Conference IBCM 2023, the Advancers are going to attend lectures of acknowledged scientists, present novel results and take part in fruitful discussions in Svetlogorsk – a resort region near the Baltic Sea. These events are going to collect leading and young scientists in one place giving them possibilities to share their experience in a welcoming atmosphere.
 Participation certificates will be provided only for full attendance of all lectures and practical classes.
  •  Attend basic course lectures from the world’s leading scientist
  • Work in labs
  • Complete a fundamental or applied project
  • Attend advanced cource lections
  • Fully immerse in the scientific environment
  • Present the results of your research

Or students can attend both!

to present their own scientific results or ones obtained during the first week of school
  • Polymer-based elastomers and nanocomposites

  • Magnetic & magnetoelectric composites

  • Synthesis of nanocomposite materials

  • Mathematical modeling of composite magnetic materials



Write a short motivation letter
  • Basic course of lectures from the world’s leading scientists in Russian and English.
    The path from idea generation to its practical implementation
  • Gaining skills in experimental research and computer modeling
  • Soft-skills training
  • Practical skills of preparing a conference speech
  • Presentation of your scientific results obtained during the first week of school
  • Food is provided
  • Well-being activities
  • Nice souvenirs
  • Certificates of participation will be taken into account as individual achievements when entering the IKBFU in 2024
  • Assistance in accommodation

Write an abstract for oral or poster presentation

  • Full immersion in the scientific environment;
  • Advanced course of lectures from the world’s leading scientists in English;
  • Communication with recognized leaders of world science.
  • Food is provided
