Advanced Materials Lecture Series

The Advanced Materials Lecture Series is an open-ended lecture series called by the International Association of Advanced Materials (IAAM). The aim of the lecture series is to promote the open and informed discussion on issues pertaining to the advanced materials science, engineering & technology and encourage scientists to address the social aspects in their research.

IAAM has a rich legacy of 6000+ world-renowned high-profile scientists from 100+ countries who have delivered their talks in the lecture series.

Procedure for selection of speakers

The executive board of IAAM nominates high-end scientists regularly in the following three categories for their contributions to strengthening the “Advancement of Materials to Global Excellence”:

IAAM Fellow Lecture: IAAM Fellow Lecture is one of the highest categories of lectures that IAAM offers to the fellow member (Fellow of IAAM, FIAAM) as part of the Advanced Materials Lecture Series. Every year, IAAM honours a number of scientists and researchers who have made longstanding contributions towards the Advancement of Materials to Global Excellence. All the recipients of this coveted honour and citation are required to deliver an IAAM Fellow Lecture.

IAAM Award Lecture: IAAM Award Lecture is a prestigious and coveted lecture that is delivered by a selected few individuals. The Executive Board of IAAM recognizes worthy and deserving researchers to commend their years of hard work and perseverance. These honourable individuals are shortlisted to deliver the coveted IAAM Award Lecture. The lecture is made accessible to the scientific community as part of the Advanced Materials Lecture Series. The members of the community who deliver this lecture are also honoured with a citation.

IAAM Innovation Award Lecture: The IAAM Innovation Award Lecture is another lecture in this series that is delivered by scientists/researchers who have brought about some significant innovation to the sphere of advanced materials. The executive board of the International Association of Advanced Materials keeps an eye out for individuals who demonstrate innovative approaches to generate path-breaking ideas and research. The board shortlists these researchers to deliver the prestigious IAAM Innovation Award Lecture and each researcher receives a citation.

IAAM Industry Award Lecture: The IAAM Industrial Award Lecture is delivered by selected industry professionals/company and who have worked towards the promotion of advanced materials science, engineering, and technology. The IAAM Executive Board shortlists professionals from the industries that have been instrumental in the advancement of materials to global excellence. These professionals are invited to the IAAM Industrial Award Lecture and conferred with a citation. 

IAAM Young Scientist Award Lecture: International Association of Advanced Materials has always believed in promoting and inspiring young professionals working in the sphere of advanced materials. The association invites the young and upcoming advanced materials researchers who have emerged as innovators to deliver this coveted lecture as a way of recognizing their effort. The shortlisting individuals are awarded with a citation.

IAAM Sustainability/Green Awards Lecture: The IAAM Sustainability and Green Award Lecture is delivered by researchers, scientists, policymakers, organizations and professionals who are utilizing advanced materials and related research to help build a sustainable and green future for the world. IAAM’s executive board keenly shortlists individuals/organizations whose works align with IAAM’s motto of the 2030 ‘Advancement of Materials to Sustainable and Green World’ and invites them to deliver this highly regarded lecture. The invitees are awarded with a citation.
