SPRING 19: Call for symposium topics

Submit your proposal

The E-MRS is now seeking symposium proposals for the E-MRS IUMRS ICAM Spring Meeting 2019.

The 2019 Spring Meeting of the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) will be held at the Congress & Exhibition Centre Nice Acropolis from May 27 to 31 and is being organized in conjuction with the International Conference on Advanced Materials (ICAM) of the International Union of Materials Research Societies (IUMRS). This E-MRS meeting will be the 37th of the series started in 1983.

The scientific programme will highlight the latest advances in international materials developments and key novel applications. In total, the conference will consist of 30 parallel symposia grouped in six main themes :

  • Decarbonized Energy and Sustainability
  • Materials for Human Well-being
  • 2D Materials : Synthesis, Characterization and Perspectives
  • Advanced Modelling for new Materials Discovery and Development
  • Advanced Characterization of Materials
  • Materials Sciences for Cultural Heritage

We encourage submitting proposals. It is extremely important that many interesting topics are addressed. We predict that this E-MRS IUMRS ICAM conference will be the largest and most exciting materials conference ever organized in Europe. We look forward to your active contribution and participation.


How should a symposium proposal be prepared?

The first step in the overall process is to prepare a proposal and submit it to E-MRS Hq. The symposium organizing committee should be preferentially an international one.

Your proposal will be evaluated by our selection committee. Generally, proposals are accepted from approximately 15-13 months before the meeting.

Please read carefully the recommendations for symposium proposal preparation and return to E-MRS Hq the application form duly completed.

Proposals should be sent within the January 30, 2018 by e-mail at emrs@european-mrs.com

They will be evaluated shortly after and the proposers will be informed end of March 2018.
