From electrical switches and solar panels to chemical-producing catalysts, printed electronics, and innovative medical applications, gold and silver are already essential components in many industries. Their unique properties make them nearly impossible to substitute and current research spans an even wider range of applications. Submit an abstract describing your research, development or implementation work and join researchers from around the world as we highlight innovations that will continue to broaden the impact of silver and gold.
