At the International Association of Advanced Materials (IAAM), we aim to create a highly interactive advanced material community and to provide education for the expanding field of Advanced Materials Science, Engineering and Technology. One of our first initiatives to achieve this goal was to offer an interdisciplinary forum on key subject areas. These areas include nanotechnology, functional materials, electronic materials, biomaterials and more. We also organize several conferences, meetings, seminars, and symposiums throughout the year on areas related to advanced materials.
We have also launched two not-for-profit open access publications, Advanced Materials Letters and Advanced Materials Proceedings. These top-quality research publications have proven to be phenomenal successes. In the year 2020, Advanced Materials Letters will celebrate its 10 year anniversary! We use these platforms to showcase path-breaking research work from leading scientists and engineers from academia and industries.
However, our best attempt at providing education for the field of Advanced Materials has been the ‘Advanced Materials Congress’.
Advanced Materials Congress (AMC), IAAM’s flagship event, is a leading conference for the international community of advanced materials. Launched in 2011, this conference focuses on the field of materials science, engineering, and technology. The AMC offers an international and interdisciplinary platform for students, researchers, academics and corporates to network and discuss the latest trends and innovations in advanced materials and technology.
Through the Advanced Materials Conferences, we have actively created a global forum spanning across the continents of Asia, Europe, Australia, Africa and the USA for the advancement of materials. Since its inception, IAAM has hosted over 15,000 delegates from over 100 countries in its past assemblies held in global cities such as Stockholm, Helsinki, New Delhi, Singapore and more.
Initially, AMC conferences were conducted on land in collaboration with renowned universities. However, to increase the networking opportunities, we launched a conference in 2013 and later on, in 2015, IAAM noticed the possibility of organizing a dedicated conference on a cruise ship, which would also bring more networking opportunities. That’s when the idea of “Knowledge Experience of Sea” was conceived.
With an aim to promote communication and collaboration of advanced materials, we invite delegates, speakers, young researchers and students from different countries. We host a range of different attendees as we understand that diversity is essential for innovation, excellence and new discoveries.
Here are some snapshots from memorable moments at our conferences on advanced materials over the years.
