APAM 2019

The Asia Pacific Academy of Materials (APAM) will be held in Guangzhou, China, 15 - 18 November 2019.

Asia Pacific Academy of Materials (APAM), in close cooperation with concerned national and international bodies, and with governmental agencies and private institutions, seek to increase awareness and expertise in scientific and technical knowledge for sustainable development and use of materials. APAM held several conferences and seminars in various countries and regions in last 27 years. The Congress of Asia Pacific Academy of Materials 2019 is scheduled to be held on November 15-18, 2019 in Guangzhou, China. We hope that the events of the Congress will contribute to the professional advancement of the participants.


The Australian Materials Research Society, in partnership with the International Union of Materials Research Societies, warmly invite you to the IUMRS International Conference in Asia (IUMRS-ICA) 2019 to be held from the 22nd to 26th of September 2019, in Perth, Western Australia.

IUMRS-ICA will be the largest gathering of materials-focused researchers in the Asia-Pacific region for 2019, as we celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table. This meeting will bring together scientists and engineers interested in all aspects of the field from theory/modeling to experiment including synthesis, fabrication, characterization, processing and manufacturing. Symposia themes will include Electronic and Optical Materials, Energy and Environmental Materials, Biomaterials, and Advanced Functional and Structured Materials, spanning scales from nano to macro and hard materials to polymers.


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.
