The title of ‘Fellow of IAAM’ is awarded to a researcher or scientist who has made significant contribution to the advancements of materials science, engineering, and technology. The title serves as a way to recognize and honour far-reaching involvement and research. All around the world, any researcher who has spent a significant time in the sphere of Advanced Materials is eligible to be the recipient of this designation. This title is granted irrespective of age, gender, race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, and background.

Selection Procedure

IAAM uses scientific databases to regularly review the significant contributions of individuals in Materials Science, Engineering, and Technology. Based on the recommendations, IAAM invites the leading scientific contributors to file nomination for the title of ‘Fellow of IAAM’. The scientific committee reviews the nominations and selects researchers to submit abstracts for their Fellow Lecture. The fellow lecture is conducted within three months from the date of the recommendation of the scientific committee either online in the Advanced Materials Lecture Series or in the Advanced Materials Congress. The selected researchers are required to deposit their fellow membership fee and processing charges for video article publication in Video Proceedings of Advanced Materials before their Fellow Lecture.


International Association of Advanced Materials forms a search committee that conducts the review process for ‘Fellow of IAAM’. The scientific committee thoroughly looks at all the contributions that an individual has made as a researcher to come to the final decision. In the past decade, IAAM has honoured and recognized hundreds of researchers from all around the world with the title of ‘Fellow of IAAM’.
