The International Association of Advanced Materials has always been an advocate for spreading translational knowledge about the rapidly expanding field of advanced materials science, engineering, and technology. The association understands that it is critical for the materials community to have global interactive forums to move forward on the path of development. For the same reason, the International Association of Advanced Materials organizes a wide range of events and conferences for the materials community (https://www.iaamonline.org/meetings-events). The primary aim behind organizing all these events is to facilitate a forum for intensive discussions that can lead to great results and ideas for building of sustainable future.
Each brand of event that IAAMM organizes has a specific goal and agenda. One of these events is the Baltic Conference Series (BCS, https://www.iaamonline.org/baltic-conference-series). The conferences organized as part of this series are held in the Baltic Sea, from where it derives its name. The Baltic Conference Series is a discussion-oriented forum that aims at showcasing the latest trends in translational research, innovations, and technology. The primary motto of the BCS is ‘Commercialization of Translational Research’.
BCS is an event that has been designed to stimulate discussions on the recent developments in the translational research and technology for the market and industry pertaining to materials science and engineering. This conference offers a prestigious platform to members of academia and industries from around the world to initiate the commercialization of modern research.
BCS conferences are aimed at highlighting all the recent progresses in the scientific world with a strong focus on the discoveries and innovations that empower the materials community. These conferences feature experts and notable personalities delivering plenary, keynote lectures, and even oral and poster presentations. The major fields of study that have been discussed in the Baltic Conference Series are: Carbon Materials & Technology, Plastic and Rubber Technology, Water Technology, Wood Technology, Medical Technology, Chemical Technology, and many more.
Over the years, the Baltic Conference Series has had a long and rich history. Some of the assemblies of BCS that have been organized in the past are:
It was in the year 2017 that IAAM organized its first ever conference of the Baltic Conference Series. This assembly of BCS was organized from 08 to 11 October 2017 in Sweden. The event was aimed at discussing the recent trends of advancement of nanomaterials and nanotechnology along with several other interdisciplinary fields. The first BCS paved the way for this new brand of Advanced Materials Congress and created opportunities for researchers around the world to make global networks and interact with other leading scientists, researchers, and professionals from different parts of the world. The conference was widely accepted and helped showcase the latest developments across a wide range of sectors.
The second assembly of the Baltic Conference Series was organized from 14 to 17 May 2018 in the city of Stockholm, Sweden. This second edition of BCS created a highly interdisciplinary forum for educators, researchers, technocrats, engineers, and students. This conference attracted all the professionals working in the fields of carbon materials & technology, rubber, epoxy, plastics, resins, pulp, paper, wood technology, etc. and gave them a renowned platform to present their research results, products, innovations, and breakthrough activities. This assembly of BCS was graced by the presence of delegates from as many as 47 countries. The conference proved to be an amazing success and achieved all its objectives.
The 3rd assembly of the Baltic Conference Series was organized from 09 to 12 October 2018 in the city of Stockholm, Sweden. This assembly was aimed at discussing the recent progresses and advancements in nanomaterials and nanotechnology along with an insight of drug delivery and nanomedicine, along with a deep focus on translational research, innovations, and technology meant for the market. One of the primary aims of this assembly of BCS was to bridge the gap between medical research and nanotechnology and face all the challenges that were faced in the healthcare and nano industry. For the same reason, the theme of this congress was kept “A substantial move towards the medical innovations and technology” and as a result, the congress successfully explored all the developments and discoveries made in the field of nanotechnology and nanomedicine.

The latest edition of the Baltic Conference Series was organized from 14 to 16 May 2019 in the city of Stockholm, Sweden. The theme of this conference was “A substantial move towards the commercialization of Translational Research to market”. This theme was an attempt made by IAAM to create multiple opportunities to highlight the progresses and advances in the transition of research into suitable materialistic results for the end-user. The congress was a highly interdisciplinary event and proved to be an amazing success. It offered events and discussion pertaining to as many as seven contemporary research fields- Water Technology, Epoxy & Resins Technology, Pulp & Paper Technology, Chemical Technology, Wood Technology, Carbon Materials & Technology, Plastics & Rubber Technology.
Over the years, the Baltic Conference Series has been a successful edition of the Advanced Materials Congress and has established a name for itself in the materials science community. International Association of Advanced Materials hopes to serve the sector of materials science and engineering with more assemblies of the Baltic Conference Series.
