Upcoming events

Materials Science and Engineering Congress 2018 (MSE)

The Materials Science and Engineering Congress 2018 (MSE) will be held September 26 - 28, 2018 in Darmstadt / Germany. Hosted by the German Materials Society (DGM – Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde e.V.) since 2008, the MSE has become the central platform for materials scientist and engineers to present their research to a large international community and to build networks across borders. In addition to different side events, the DGM-Day with the DGM Forum for Young Talents is an integral part of the MSE.

The German Materials Society / Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde e. V. (DGM), founded in 1919, is the largest scientific and technical society in the field of materials science and engineering in Germany and a member of the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS). It represents the interests of its members and ensures a continuous development in terms of content, structure and personnel in the field of materials science and engineering.

With more than 1,500 participants, the MSE congress is one of the largest international congresses in the field of Materials Science and Engineering across Europe. Every two years, numerous scientific questions in the field of Materials Science and Engineering are discussed in a variety of symposia, plenary lectures and the side events. An accompanying exhibition enables companies to present themselves and their products as well as the participants of the MSE Congress to get to know the latest trends in measurement technology and career opportunities in the economy.

This years’ guest country will be Argentina. It will be represented by the Argentine Society of Materials (SAM Asociación Argentina de Materiales) and an ARG-GER committee organizing a special symposium to demonstrate the Argentinean-German collaborations in Materials Science and Engineering.

Please note that the deadline for abstract submission is already February 28, 2018!

16th European Conference on Thermoelectrics / 37th International Conference on Thermoelectrics (ICT/ECT2018)

The ICT/ECT2018 will be held July 1-5, 2017 in Caen / France.

The international conferences on thermoelectrics provide a global forum for presentations and information exchange on the latest emerging thermoelectric technology. This conference series began in 1976 in Arlington, Texas, USA. Since 1988, the ICT has been held in various countries, since the international thermoelectric society typically holds a three-year rotation for conference sites between Europe, Asia and the Americas, where most of the activities in thermoelectrics research are located. In 2018, it will coincide with the European Conference on Thermoelectrics, the biggest event on this subject in Europe, a high quality scientific forum promoted by the European Thermoelctric Society. Both offer open and informal disscussions on thermoelectrics covering als aspects from materials design through synthesis and characterization to application, modules and simulations.
