Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the Organizing Committee it is our pleasure to announce the 
20th Conference on *Solid Compounds of Transition Elements* to be held 
in Zaragoza, Spain.

  * Venue: Paraninfo Building of the University of Zaragoza
  * Dates: April 11th to 15th, 2016.
  * Website: scte2016.unizar.es <http://scte2016.unizar.es>

*Important Dates*

  * Abstract submission period begins: *November 1st, 2015*
  * Abstract submission deadline: *January 18th, 2016*
  * Notification of poster/oral communications: *February 08th, 2016*
  * Early Bird Registration deadline: *February 21st, 2016***
  * Registration deadline for presenting authors: *February 29st, 2016***
  * Manuscript submission deadline: *May 15th, 2016*

SCTE provides a forum for discussion on fundamental and applied research 
in the areas of solid state chemistry, physics and materials science of 
compounds containing d- and f- elements. The SCTE conference has always 
been promoted by the individuals forming the International Honorary and 
Advisory Committees.

The proceedings of the SCTE2016 will be published in a special issue of 
edition of the SCTE conference. A copy of the proceedings and web access 
to the papers will be granted to all registered participants.

The scope of the Conference includes the following *Topics*:

  * Processes and syntheses
  * Crystal chemistry
  * Phase equilibria and phase transitions
  * Thermodynamics
  * Magnetic, electrical and optical properties
  * Electronic phenomena at the crossover from localized to itinerant
    electronic behavior in solids
  * Theory, “ab initio” methods, electronic structure, chemical bonding
  * Physical and chemical properties at the nanometric scale:
    nanoparticles, films, interfaces
  * Synchrotron radiation and neutron scattering in research on
    transition element compounds
  * Materials for industry

and *Materials*:

  * Intermetallic compounds
  * Strongly correlated electron systems
  * Multiferroic and magnetoelectric systems
  * Topological quantum matter
  * Magnetocalorics, thermoelectrics
  * Multifunctional materials
  * Molecular solids: molecular magnetism, MOFs, spin crossover
  * Materials for energy storage: compounds for hydrogen storage,
    batteries and fuel cells
  * Novel superconducting materials, ruthenates, iron pnictides and
    oxide pnictides
  * Materials for high frequency applications
  * Disordered, inhomogeneous and frustrated materials

SCTE 2016 will present plenary and invited lectures by leading 
Scientist, keynote and oral talks, and poster presentations.
