Full length papers presented at the Conference will be published as Proceedings in international journals.

The researchers from different countries will participate and share their vision on progress and problems in materials science, nanotechnologies, ecology, renewable energy and energy storage systems.

The conference will be supported by several TV, newspaper and internet companies.

The conference is an open event and the participants from academia, industry and investors sectors are welcome to participate. We expect participation of several partner companies, and investors.

The INESS conference started in Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan in 2013. The scientists and students from Japan, Korea, France, Germany, China, Russia, Canada, UAE, UK, Turkey and Kazakhstan reviewed and discussed the recent progress and problems in materials science, nanotechnologies, ecology, renewable energy, energy storage systems and modeling methods in these fields. For further details please visit the INESS-2018 web-page: For past conferences please check INESS-2016INESS-2017.

ISIPM-10 series has started in Japan and continued in European countries and US as well.  In Kazakhstan we are organizing the 10th ISIPM conference for the first time. In parallel with INESS-2018 and ISIPM-10 we are organizing the ISIAMEO-5 which has started in Université de La Rochelle and continued in Shanghai Institute of Ceramics of the Chinese Academy of Science (SICCAS) before Japan and Morocco. For past ISIPM-10 and ISIAMEO-5 conferences please visit ISIPM-10ISIAMEO-2.


The registration fee for the conference (to be paid by presenting authors):

–          USD 350 for Industry Participants (USD 450 after 1 July, 2018)

–          USD 300 for Academicians (USD 350 after 1 July, 2018)
