25–27 September 2024 ICM 2024 – Advances in Material Innovation

Basel, Switzerland

We are delighted to announce the 5th International Conference of Materials – Advances in Material Innovation, scheduled to take place in Basel, Switzerland, from September 25–27, 2024.

The goal of this conference is to unite leading scientists, researchers, and industry experts worldwide, facilitating the exchange of insights on recent advancements in Materials Characterization, Processing, and Manufacturing. The focus areas include Nanotechnology in Material Sciences and Engineering, Optical, Electrical, and Magnetic Materials, Soft, Biological, and Bio-materials, Fibers, Membranes, and Thin film, Sensing Materials, as well as Materials and devices for energy and solar fuels. Additionally, discussions on the integration of AI and ML in Material research will be featured.

The event is sponsored by MDPI and the open-access journal MaterialsFollowing three successful editions in electronic format, the 2022 conference was held in Barcelona, Spain. We anticipate that the conference will offer attendees a unique opportunity to stay informed about the latest research and to connect with colleagues from around the world.

We invite abstract submissions for posters or short talks aligned with the conference theme, which will be evaluated for potential presentation at the event. Participants in the meeting will have the chance to showcase their work and engage in discussions about their research within a stimulating and collegial environment.
