CMSC June 10-13, 2019

We hope you will join us in Vancouver for the Canadian Materials Science Conference  this June.

Some funding for student travel assistance is available from the Metallurgy and Materials Society of CIM.

A special emphasis of the conference will be on:

  • Phase Transformations, Mechanical Behaviour and Properties
  • Advanced Characterization of Materials
  • Computational Materials Science
  • Applied Electrochemistry and Degradation of Materials
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Other: Biomaterials, Nanomaterials, Energy Materials, Electronic Materials, Emerging Materials

In celebration of Professor David Embury’s 80th birthday we are holding a special symposium as part of this year’s conference. The symposium brings together many of David’s former students and close colleagues to give invited talks focusing on the future of materials science and engineering.

We hope that these talks will inspire collegial discussion and debate, in honour of the thoughtful scientific discussions we have all enjoyed with David over the years.

There is an opportunity for poster presentations as part of this symposium.  Each poster presentation will also be given a short time to introduce their topic during the oral portion of the program.  We encourage submissions for the poster portion of the program.

Particular focus will be given to:

  • The Future of Ferrous Physical Metallurgy
  • Precipitation, deformation and fracture in nonferrous alloys
  • New avenues for study in deformation, strengthening mechanisms and fracture
  • The coupling between deformation and phase transformations
  • The Future of Architectured Materials
  • New Directions in Materials Education & Research
