Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are very pleased to announce the organization of the Workshop “Sorrento 2013 – Sorrento 2023: A decade of Peptide Materials” Sorrento (Naples – Italy) October 26-28, 2023.

Next year will be exactly a decade since the first meeting on Peptide Materials held in Sorrento in October 2013.

Now, we want to renew the experience, gathering all of us again in Sorrento for a brainstorming on the evolution of the field in the past 10 years and to highlight future perspectives for Peptide Materials.

The conference is organized in the same location (Hotel Tramontano) and in the same period of the season (October 26-29) of the 2013 meeting.

The idea is to have presentations by scientists already present in 2013 that could show as evolved their research in this decade, as well by scientists that more recently entered in this fascinating field.

Several oral communications will be scheduled during the workshop together with a poster session and a round table dedicated to the presentation of Peptide Materials with assessed applications.

The topics of the workshop are:

  • Peptide Self-Assembly and Material Design
  • Peptide Interactions with Materials
  • Peptide Hydrogels and Hydrogel nanoparticles
  • Peptide Biomaterials & Tissue Regeneration
  • Peptide Materials for Opto/Electronic Applications

The workshop venue, Hotel Tramontano, with a beautiful location sheer on the blue sea and close to the centre of Sorrento, the warm hospitality, the outstanding food and wine and the beauty of Sorrento coast will certainly make your stay unforgettable.

Moreover, you could enjoy of visiting the splendid cities of Pompei, Ercolano, Capri, Positano and Amalfi, all easily reachable from the Workshop venue.

We are confident that the entire Peptide Material Community will be present in Sorrento next year for this event and we invite all of you for an active participation at the workshop.

The organizing and scientific committee,

A. Accardo, G. Bocchinfuso, F. Cavalieri, C. Diaferia, G. Morelli, M. Venanzi
