http://mrs.org.sg/icmat2009/

Encouraged by the overwhelming success of the first 4 ICMAT conferences, the Materials Research Society of Singapore will host the 5th ICMAT and IUMRS - ICA 2009 from 28 June to 3 July 2009 at the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre (SICEC). Some of the ICMAT conferences were attended by more

than 2,000 members of the international scientific and materials research community representing over 40 countries.

There will be 23 Symposia covering contemporary topics of importance for the science, engineering and technology of materials. The technical program includes Plenary, Theme, Keynote, Invited, Oral and Poster presentations. About 50 international exhibitors from all sectors of materials science and engineering communities will also be showcasing their products and equipment during the conference. In line with the previous ICMAT conferences, a few Nobel Laureates will speak at the conference. They will also be giving public lectures at the University Cultural Centre of the National University of Singapore. These lectures will be opened to conference participants and to the general public including students from local Junior Colleges, Polytechnics and Universities.

Thus, ICMAT 2009 and IUMRS - ICA 2009 will be a multidisciplinary forum providing over 2,000 research scientists and engineers a first-hand learning platform, as well as the opportunity to share and exchange ideas with some of the best minds in the field.
