Materials Science and Engineering is an acclaimed scientific discipline, expanding in recent decades to surround polymers, ceramics, glass, composite materials and biomaterials. Materials science and engineering, involves the discovery and design of new materials. Many of the most pressing scientific problems humans currently face are due to the limitations of the materials that are available and, as a result, major breakthroughs in materials science are likely to affect the future of technology significantly. Materials scientists lay stress on understanding how the history of a material influences its structure, and thus its properties and performance. All engineered products from airplanes to musical instruments, alternative energy sources related to ecologically-friendly manufacturing processes, medical devices to artificial tissues, computer chips to data storage devices and many more are made from materials. In fact, all new and altered materials are often at the heart of product innovation in highly diverse applications
We invite you, on behalf of the Organizing Committee, to this excellent meeting with great scientists from different countries around the world and sharing new and exciting results in Materials World, which will be held in Italy from June 12-14, 2017.This exciting and informative conference program including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops on a variety of topics, poster presentations and various programs for participants from all over the world.
The field of materials have not only helped the development in different fields in science and technology but also contributed towards the improvement of the quality of human life to a great extent. All this has become possible with the different discoveries and inventions leading to the development of various applications. The core aim of Materials Science-2016 conference is to provide an opportunity for the delegates to meet, interact and exchange new ideas in the various areas of Materials Science
Why Rome, Italy?
With a long tradition in welcoming people from all over the world, "Rome", the host city, is among the most exquisite tourist destination, and hence the perfect place to hold such event. Every year millions of tourists come from around the world to eulogize the treasures and masterpieces of Roman art and architecture. Monuments and museums such as the Colosseum and the Vatican Museums are among the world’s most visited global destinations with these two locations receiving millions of tourists a year.
During June, the climate is generally benign, comfortable daytime temperatures with sunny skies, making it ideal for sightseeing. Popular attractions are not as crowded. In the countryside, wildflowers cover the hills in spring, and in the fall the land is painted in browns and golds that are warm and welcoming. With more affordable hotel rates, low humidity, the weather is still nice and warm and ideal time for a beach holiday, June is the best time to visit Italy.
Why to attend?
Materials Congress 2017 offers a fantastic opportunity to meet and make new contacts in the field of Materials Science and Engineering, by providing collaboration spaces and break-out rooms with tea and lunch for delegates between sessions with invaluable networking time for you. It allows delegates to have issues addressed on Materials Science by recognized global experts who are up to date with the latest developments in the Materials Science field and provide information on new techniques and technologies. This International Materials Science conference will feature world renowned keynote speakers, plenary speeches, young research forum, poster presentations, technical workshops and career guidance sessions.
