The International Conference for Young Researchers on Advanced Materials (ICYRAM) will be held in Adelaide, Australia, 5 - 7 November 2018.

The mission of ICYRAM is to provide a platform for researchers upto 15 years post-PhD to present technical findings of their research, to network within the international community of other young researchers, and to increase the breadth of their general materials-based knowledge. ICYRAM2018, the 4th edition of ICYRAM, will build on the original mission by providing a fair and equitable event for all young researcher’s to meet, discuss and network in a safe and welcoming environment. Whether they be specialized materials researchers or those who utilise and apply materials to their R&D – ICYRAM2018 welcomes all.


The International Union of Materials Research Society – International Conference in Asia (IUMRS-ICA) will be held in Bali, Indonesia, from Oct. 31 – Nov 2, 2018. IUMRS-ICA is one of the most important series conference of International Union of Materials Research Societies (IUMRS). The IUMRS-ICA is the largest gathering for materials scientists and engineers in Asia, with more than 1000 attendees in previous meetings. It is an important annual event for knowledge exchange and interactions among researchers and engineers from academia, industries, and research laboratories. There will be 27 symposia covering six fields as follows: energy and environment materials, advanced structural materials, advanced functional materials, biological materials, materials modeling, simulation and characterization. An exhibition on “Advanced Materials, Manufacturing and Testing Equipment” will be held simultaneously with the conference.

The International Union of Materials Research Society – International Conference on Electronic Materials 2018 (IUMRS-ICEM2108) will be held from August 19 ~ 24, 2018 at Daejeon Convention Center in Daejeon, Korea. The program of IUMRS-ICEM 2018 consists of 6 symposia; Electronic Materials, 2D Materials, Soft Electronics, Functional Materials, Energy and Energy Storage, and Bio-Engineering. Since the first conference was commenced, this meeting has become a fundamental ground to exchange quality results and ideas provided by the researchers and scientists within universities, industries and institutes. Furthermore, it also provides a forum to present the cutting-edge research outputs for future collaborations which would help both students and researchers within their future research studies and works to be conducted.

IMC19 2018

19th International Microscopy Congress (IMC19) will be held from 9-14 September 2018, in Sydney, Australia. It is expected that the Congress will attract over 2,000 scientists working within and outside the microscopy sector. There will be a large interactive trade exhibition where leading suppliers are set to launch ground-breaking new instruments.

The Congress theme is “Microscopy: Bridging the Sciences” which will offer an outstanding scientific program led by world-renowned plenary speakers, that will not only be a platform to showcase exciting new developments in microscopy, but will also demonstrate the transformational role of microscopy in underpinning a range of physical and life sciences.
