V International Materials Symposium MATERIAIS 2009 (XIV meeting of SPM – Sociedade Portuguesa de Materiais), 5-8 April ,Lisbon
RECENT ADVANCES IN CHARACTERIZATION, PROCESSING, DESIGN AND MODELLING OF STRUCTURAL AND FUNCTIONAL MATERIALS
The V International Materials Symposium MATERIAIS 2009 (XIV meeting of SPM – Sociedade Portuguesa de Materiais) will take place from the 5th to the 8th of April 2009, at the Alameda campus of Instituto Superior Técnico, Technical University of Lisbon.
This conference is a forum for presentation and discussion of high quality contributions and innovations across the entire spectrum of Materials Science and Engineering. There will be oral presentations and poster sessions, organized according to the Topics. In a joint Exhibition, industrial companies, commercial branches, research organizations and publishing houses can present their products.
The biennial meetings of SPM were initiated in 1983 (at LNEC, in Lisbon) and have been held regularly since then. In 2001 (at the University of Coimbra), these meetings became a well recognized (biennial) international conference and English was adopted as the official language of the symposia.
Call for Papers
Detailed instructions to submit papers to the conference can be seen in the Authors section.
Submission deadline for Abstracts: 31 October 2008
The conference addresses all classes of materials, focussing the latest advances in theory, modelling, simulation, characterization, processing, and industrial applications.
The following topics are specially welcome for presentation in MATERIAIS 2009:
effects only present at the nanoscale
molecularly engineered materials
crystallography, defects associated with crystal structures, and their relation to physical properties
high temperature materials
materials for civil engineering applications
fabrication of devices using electronic and electro-optic materials
non-crystalline materials, including oxide, non-oxide and metallic glasses
integration of materials into biological systems
structural integrity: corrosion, damage, fatigue, wear
evaluation of performance in condition simulating applications
advances in surface science and analysis methods
materials for energy production, transport and storage
innovative applications for natural materials.
