It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the IEEE International Conference on Smart Materials and Spectroscopy (SMS’2018), which will be hosted by the Laboratory of Spectroscopic  Characterization and Optical Materials (LaSCOM) at the Faculty of Sciences of Sfax, on October 12-15, 2018 in a 5* hotel in Yassmine Hammamet (Tunisia), in cooperation with the Laboratory of Physics of Materials and Nanomaterials Applied and Environment (LaPhyMNE) at the Faculty of Sciences of Gabes (Tunisia).

SMS 2018 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Tunisia Section and IEEE Instrumentation & Measurement Society (IMS).

The SMS’2018 conference provides an excellent opportunity for researchers and practitioners at all levels of experience to meet colleagues and to share new ideas and knowledge about Smart Materials and Spectroscopy. The conference enjoys strong participation from researchers in both industry and academia.
