9th Forum on New Materials: Invited Lectures

9th Forum on New Materials Invited LecturesCIMTEC 2021 – 15th International Conference on Modern Materials and Technologies – will be held in Montecatini Terme, Italy, June 21 to 30, 2021. It will feature the 15th International Ceramics Congress (June 21-25) and the 9th Forum on New Materials (June 26-30), each of them including a number of international Symposia and Conferences. As a major longstanding event for the international materials community in 2021 celebrating its 50th Birthday, CIMTEC will gather together a large and qualified audience of materials scientists, physicists, chemists and of experts of a wide range of the most demanding application engineering areas of modern materials, from the molecular and nanoscales to large complex integrated systems.

The National Research Council of Italy (CNR), the Italian National Agency for New Technology, Energy and the Environment (ENEA) will act as major endorsers of CIMTEC 2020 together with the World Academy of Ceramics (WAC), The International Ceramic Federation (ICF) and the International Union of the Materials Research Societies (IUMRS).

The Chair, Co-Chairs and CIMTEC 2021 Committees Members invite you to foster the progress in the field by contributing with your expertise to what promises to be a very comprehensive and exciting event, and to enjoy the immense unique artistic heritage and wonderful landscape of Tuscany.
