On behalf of the Australian Materials Research Society, in partnership with the International Union of Materials Research Societies, it is our pleasure to invite you to the IUMRS International Conference in Asia 2019 to be held from the 22th to 26th of September 2019, in Perth, Western Australia.

This will be the largest gathering of materials-focused researchers in the Asia-Pacific region for 2019, as we celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table. This meeting will bring together scientists and engineers interested in all aspects of the field from theory/modeling to experiment including synthesis, fabrication, characterization, processing and manufacturing. Symposia themes will include Electronic and Optical Materials, Energy and Environmental Materials, Biomaterials, and Advanced Functional and Structured Materials, spanning scales from nano to macro and hard materials to polymers.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, situated next to the Swan River in the heart of one of the world’s most liveable cities for the opportunity to network with the leading researchers in materials, as well as to enjoy the attractions of spring time in Western Australia from wildflowers to wine and whales.

Conference Chairs:

Prof. Julian Gale, Curtin University

A/Prof. Lan Fu, The Australian National University
