The Brazilian Materials Research Society (B-MRS) invites researchers and students from the international scientific community to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations at the XVIII B-MRS Meeting.
Abstract submission is open until April 15. Registration is also open, with promotional fees until August 2nd.
The event will be held from September 22 to 26 this year in Balneário Camboriú (state of Santa Catarina, Brazil), at the Sibara Hotel, located in the central part of the city and a few meters from the beach. The chairmen of the meeting are Prof. Ivan Helmuth Bechtold (Department of Physics, UFSC) and Hugo Gallardo (Department of Chemistry, UFSC).
The event comprises 23 thematic symposia, organized by more than 100 researchers from institutions and companies from Brazil, Canada, France, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and USA. Symposia will include oral and poster sessions, as well as invited lectures given by renowned experts in their research fields.
This year, the symposia cover a wide range of research topics in materials such as carbon nanomaterials, glass ceramics, 3D printing materials, conductive polymers, new metal alloys, nanofibers, two-dimensional materials, molecular sieves and magnetic and superconducting materials, among others. The symposia also cover materials applications in segments such as health, energy, environmental remediation, electronics, photonics and defense, as well as the textile, aerospace and automotive sectors.
The best contributions presented by undergraduate or graduate students will be honored at the end of the event with prizes awarded by B-MRS, ACS Publications and other entities. To apply for the awards, authors must submit, by July 11, an additional extended abstract.
In addition to take part in the symposia, participants will be able to attend eight plenary lectures with internationally renowned scientists and cutting-edge science and technology, a memorial lecture by Prof. Ivonne Primerano Mascarenhas (IFSC-USP), and technical lectures on characterization techniques. Participants will also be able to join a workshop that will be held on the first day of the event and visit the booths of exhibiting companies with the latest innovations in scientific instrumentation.
