Fellow of IAAM is a prestigious honour that the International Association of Advanced Materials confers upon researchers and scientists to appreciate their hard work and efforts for the advanced materials community. The Fellow of IAAM is recognized as a prestigious title that is only conferred upon deserving researchers who have made some significant contribution to the world of materials science, engineering and technology. By honouring the researchers and scientific elites with this coveted title, IAAM recognizes their hard work and also hopes to motivate the young and upcoming researchers to take research up as a long-term career. The fellow of IAAM is entitled to use the designatory letters “FIAAM”.
The title of ‘Fellow of IAAM’ is awarded to a researcher or scientist who has made original and significant research in the field of materials science, engineering, and technology. The title serves as a way to recognize and honour far-reaching involvement and research of a researcher. All around the world, any researcher who has spent more than 20 years in the sphere of Advanced Materials is eligible to be the recipient of this honour.
The Executive Board of the International Association of Advanced Materials (IAAM) regularly proposes names of outstanding scientists for the Fellow of IAAM. IAAM's Secretary General office contacts the proposed scientists for their consent and submission of the latest CV to IAAM Office. After that, the scientific committee reviews and invites the researchers to submit abstracts for the IAAM Fellow Lecture. The fellow lecture is conducted within a month from the date of the recommendation of the scientific committee in the Advanced Materials LectureSeries. The selected fellow members are required to deposit the fellow membership fee, administrative and processing cost before their Fellow Lecture. After the fulfillment of all the mandatory requirements, IAAM confers upon the researchers the title of ‘Fellow of IAAM’ in recognition of their contribution to “Advancement of Materials to Global Excellence”.
