After much deliberations amid growing concerns over the global outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), American Association for Advances in Functional Materials (AAAFM) has made the difficult, but necessary, decision to postpone AAAFM-UCLA 2020. 

The new dates for the AAAFM-UCLA will be August 18-20, 2021 at the same venue. 

Your current submitted abstract and registration fee will be automatically transferred to next year conference. However, we would like to provide you with an opportunity to modify or resubmit your abstract from December 2020. Your current abstract and registration fee remain in our system as submitted unless you make the decision to withdraw your paper. We will open the submission portal for new abstracts and for making modifications to existing abstracts in December 2020.

The support you have shown for the AAAFM-UCLA 2020 is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to your involvement in the program in the AAAFM-UCLA 2021. Should you have any questions regarding the new arrangement, please do not hesitate to contact us at
