ICKEM 2018

March 16-18, 2018 | Osaka, Japan
The 8th International Conference on Key Engineering Materials

The Conference Committee is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for The 8th International Conference on Key Engineering Materials. We invite all those wishing to participate to submit a proposal to present their work, which can be a lecture, a workshop, a poster exhibition, or special session, addressing the Key Engineering Materials through one of the official topics. ICKEM 2018 is co-organized by University of the Ryukyus, and Kyushu Branch of the Society of Materials Science, Japan.


Previous ICKEM meetings were held in Sanya (China), Singapore, Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia), Bali (Indonesia), Singapore, Hong Kong, and Penang (Malaysia) from 2011 to 2017. With the experience of running successful events in the ICKEM series over the past 7 years, we are confident that 2018 will witness an even greater success of the 8th edition of ICKEM.
