Symposium I - Solutions for critical raw materials under extreme conditions
E-MRS 2017 Fall Meeting
to be held in Warsaw University of Technology (Poland) on September 18-21, 2017.
Co-organized by the COST Action CRM-EXTREME, the network of infrastructures EXTREME, and the EIP Raw Materials commitment SUBST-EXTREME, the symposium aims to provide a unique platform to a wide range of international researchers and companies who are engaged in performing cutting edge multidisciplinary research on strategic critical raw materials (CRMs) substitution, new materials design, LCA, recycling, and technological solutions for circular economy, for applications of CRMs under challenging conditions of temperature, wear, friction, loading, and corrosion. A representative from the Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials Unit of the European Commission will also participate in the symposium to present an overview of the ongoing European strategies in the considered fields. Additionally, a representative from the KIC EIT RawMaterials (https://eitrawmaterials.eu/) is also expected to have a talk in the symposium. More details about the symposium can be found here.
Contributions through oral or poster presentations are welcome. You are warmly encouraged to submit an abstract directly at the conference website www.european-mrs.com/meetings/2017-fall-meeting. The deadline for abstract submission is: Monday, May 29th, 2017
After regular peer review process, the full papers will be published in the open access journal IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering (IOPscience).
Participants may attend other E-MRS symposia, and benefit from an excellent platform for scientific exchange.
