The 28th edition of the national conference “Condensed Matter Days 2020" (CMDAYS 20) will be organised in online mode jointly by the Department of Physics and Institute Innovation Cell, National Institute of Technology Silchar, Assam, India . Condensed Matter Physics, with its truly interdisciplinary characters enjoys its technological implications both in fundamental and applied research. "Condensed Matter Days" aims to provide a suitable platform for scientists, academicians and young researchers to present their works on chosen topics of technological relevance. The Conference is expected to result in sustained collaborations through sharing of ideas and techniques of mutual interest.
National Institute of Technology Silchar, Assam is

The format and instruction for authors are attached
along with the announcement. Authors are requested to submit their one page abstract through email
attachment (MS word) to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Acceptance of the
abstract will be notifed through email.
There will be a special session on "Hydrogen production, storage, sensing and fuel cells”.
Participants intending to send papers in this category should mention "Abstract for special session" in the subject heading while sending their abstracts.
