October 31, NOVEMBER 18, 2018 (NEW DEADLINE), the Brazilian Materials Research Society (B-MRS) is receiving proposals of thematic symposia to compose the XVIII B-MRS Meeting.
The event will be held from September 22 to 26, 2019, in the city of Balneário Camboriú (State of Santa Catarina, Brazil), at the Hotel Sibara Flat & Conventions. The meeting will be coordinated by professors Ivan H. Bechtold and Hugo Gallardo, both from Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC) .
Symposia proposals can be submitted by groups of PhD researchers from Brazil or abroad, working in education and research institutions or companies, who wish to organize a symposium on a particular subject of Materials Science and Technology, within the XVIII B- MRS Meeting Program.
Proposals must be filled online at http://sbpmat.org.br/proposed_symposium/, and should include the title and scope of the symposium, list of topics covered, organizers data and preliminary list of invited speakers. The date of publication of the approved proposals will be announced shortly.
Thematic symposia, proposed and organized by members of the scientific community, are the axis of the B-MRS meetings. Scientific contributions, both in oral and poster sessions, are presented by the symposia participants. The 2018 meeting, held in Natal (RN), had 21 symposia with 1,600 oral and poster presentations, comprising the development, manufacture and characterization of different types of materials (nanomaterials, conductive polymers, advanced metals, composites, metallic oxides, electroceramics, biomaterials, surfaces, coatings) and their applications in segments such as energy, aerospace, health, electronics, bioelectronics, photonics, aumototive and decorative. More than 1,100 professionals and students participated in the 2018 edition of the event.
The site of the XVIII B-MRS Meeting will be released and announced soon.
