The workshop MetEcoMa
t (19-21 April, Plovdiv, Bulgaria 2007) (http://metecomat.igic.bas.bg/)
is devoted to all aspects of characterization and metrology of ecomaterials and processes. The thematic area of the workshop comprises advanced laser materials for ecology, functional materials for environmental protection, and materials for energy application. The metrology topics will be focused on method validation and quality assurance of environmental analysis. Thermodynamic modeling of ecomaterials and processes in order to predict novel properties will be presented. Green technologies for production of ecomaterials will be discussed with the intention to solve the global environmental issues.
