Call for symposium proposals for the XIX B-MRS Meeting + IUMRS-ICEM 2020: extended to November 18th.

The Brazilian Materials Research Society (B-MRS/SBPMat) and the International Union of Materials Research Societies (IUMRS) invite the international scientific community to submit symposium proposals.

logo 19 encontroUntil October 31st NOVEMBER 18th 2019, the call for symposium proposals is open for the event that will bring together the XIX B-MRS Meeting (the annual B-MRS event) and the IUMRS – ICEM 2020 (seventeenth edition of the International Conference on Electronic Materials). The event will be held from August 30 to September 3, 2020 in Foz do Iguaçu (Brazil), a tourist town near the border with Argentina and Paraguay, which serves as a base for visits to the stunning Iguazu Falls and to others attractions in the surroundings.

Symposium proposals may be submitted by groups of researchers, preferably of international composition, who wish to organize a thematic symposium within the event. The conference will have a special focus on electronic materials due to the realization of IUMRS-ICEM. However, as in all editions of the B-MRS Meeting, the event will cover a wide range of materials science and technology topics. The organizers therefore welcome symposium proposals on topics relating to all types of materials, from synthesis to applications.

To submit a symposium proposal, simply fill out the online form available at

The symposia will be the main focus of the event with plenary lectures, which will feature internationally renowned scientists such as Alex Zunger (University of Colorado Boulder, USA), Edson Leite (LNNano, Brazil), John Rogers (Northwestern University, USA) , Luisa Torsi (Università degli Studi di Bari “A. Moro”, Italy) and Tao Deng (Shanghai Jiaotong University, China).

Symposium proposals will be evaluated by the event committee, and by the end of 2019 the list of approved symposia will be released. In February 2020, the call for papers will be opened, which should be submitted within the scope of the thematic symposia. Symposium organizers will be responsible for evaluating the submitted abstracts and scheduling the symposium.

The joint event XIX B-MRS Meeting + IUMRS – ICEM 2020 is coordinated by professors Gustavo Martini Dalpian (UFABC) as the Conference Chair, Carlos Cesar Bof Bufon (LNNANO) as the Program Chair and Flavio Leandro de Souza (UFABC) as General Secretary. At the international committee, the event features scientists from America, Asia, Europe and Oceania.

The latest editions of the B-MRS Meeting brought together between 1,100 and 2,000 participants from various countries around the world, who presented their contributions within the symposia.

B-MRS listens to the community: suggestions of topics and speakers and call for symposia.

B-MRS has opened a new channel for communication with the scientific community to receive suggestions for the next event, regarding:

  • plenary speakers
  • themes for symposia

The suggestions should be sent by October 15 to the e-mail

Plenary lectures should address a broad audience (different levels of training and diverse research topics). Plenarists must be outstanding scientists, renowned in the international scientific community, and able to provide a motivational lecture about the progress achieved over time, as well as challenges and perspectives for the future, in a specific research topic.

Thematic symposia are the axis of B-MRS meetings. Scientific contributions, both in oral and poster sessions, are presented by the symposia participants. For the next meeting, the scientific community is invited to to participate  in the choice of thematic symposia that will compose the program in two ways:

  • With previous suggestions: sent by any member of the scientific community to until October 15, 2018.
  • Submission of symposia proposals: submitted through an electronic form by a group of PhD researchers from the scientific community who wish to be symposium organizers, between 1 and 31 October 2018 (please notice the dates, well before the usual period from previous meetings). Go to submission form.
