Keynote Speakers

Prof. Dr. Nguyen Quang Liem
Institute Materials Sciences, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology, Hanoi, Vietnam

Biography: Nguyen Quang Liem is a Professor of physics. He served as Director of Institute of Materials Science (IMS), Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST) over the period 2009–2017. He has rich experiences in optoelectronic materials and has published more than 100 papers on international journals, one book and some patents. His research interests are in optoelectronic materials (film and quantum dots/nanocrystals) and devices (luminescent materials for light emitting diode and for biolabeling/sensors, photocatalysts for photo-reactivity and for photoreactor), development of scientific instruments and spectroscopic measuring techniques, especially some related ones like Raman scattering and photoluminescence spectroscopy enhanced with surface plasmon resonance for fast/non-destructive and sensitive analysis/detection of residual pesticides, chemical radicals, characterizations of the ancient art/cultural products. He is the Vice-President of the Vietnam Physical Society (VPS) and a Council Member of the Association of Asia Pacific Physical Societies (AAPPS). He is Editor-in-Chief of Advances Natural Sciences: Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (IOP Publishing), editorial member of Heliyon (Elsevier) and of Journal of Science: Advanced Materials and Devices (Elsevier).



Prof. Dr. Ildoo Chung
Pusan National University, Busan, Korea

Biography: Professor Ildoo Chung joined the faculty of the Department of Polymer Science and Engineering at Pusan National University, Korea, in 2005. Prior to that, he completed his postdoctoral training with Professor Jimmy Mays in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Tennessee, USA, and with Professor Dong Xie in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA. He received his Ph.D. from Pusan National University in 2000. He has served as the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Adhesion and Interface and as a member of the board of directors of the Polymer Society of Korea, the Korea Society of Adhesion and Interface, the Korea Polyurethane Society, and the Asian Cyclodextrin Conference. He has over 130 peer-reviewed publications and over 200 presentations at national and international conferences. His research interests are focused on polymer synthesis, including atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) and reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization, applied to advanced polymeric biomaterials such as drug delivery systems, hard/soft tissue compatible polymers, photocurable 3D printing polymers, biodegradable polymers, and composite systems.
