The International Symposium on Materials Chemistry (ISyMC’18)

               ◄ Back to journal


Dr. Irekti Amar, University M’hamed Bougara Boumerdes, Algeria


The success of the first edition of 2016 prompted the organizers to renew the proposed format. Thus, for two days, 4 topics will be at the rendezvous to identify and develop the different scientific disciplines concerned by the chemistry of materials for sustainable development.

Today, with the emergence of research centers and laboratories, it is imperative to find solutions to the problems posed and to project them for the years to come, and to continue the ongoing research efforts towards new ones surveys. .

Several actors from different universities around the world are invited to participat in this event. The research areas of and applications are very important:

  • Materials (advanced, functional, intelligent, composites, nanomaterials and nanocomposites, green composites, etc.)
  • Structures (solids mechanics, applied mechanics, mechanics, plasticity dynamics, fatigue and fracture, structural mechanics, acoustics and vibrations, etc.)
  • Non-destructive testing (conventional testing, non-destructive testing, optical engineering, complete field measurement, microstructure characterization techniques, etc.)
  • Processing (influence of processes on materials, layer composition, coatings and surface engineering, surface treatment on manufacturing and structural applications, assembly, recycling, etc.)

Submissions of original research articles is done after the selection of the scientific committee according to the evaluation of your presentation on the day of symposium.

Symposium Topics:

  • Inorganic Materials Chemistry
    Keywords: Cements and concretes, ceramics and glass, Metals and alloys  
  • Inorganic Materials Chemistry
    Keywords: Cements and concretes, ceramics and glass, Metals and alloys 
  • Green Chemistry
    Keywords: Ecology, Water treatment, Sustainable chemistry, Renewable energy, Waste management and recovery...
  • Elaboration processes and of setting in shape
