The Fourth Global Conference on Materials Science and Engineering was recently held at the University of Macau (UM). This year's conference attracted more than 200 renowned scholars and researchers from 17 countries. The event aimed to provide a platform for experts and scholars from around the world to discuss the latest research findings in the field of materials science and engineering.

Prof Harry Bhadeshia from the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, delivered the first keynote speech, which was focused on his research findings in nanostructured metal. The lecture attracted a full-house audience.

Other keynote speakers at the conference included Prof Harry E Ruda from the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, University of Toronto, Canada; Prof Chen Jen-Sue from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Cheng Kung University, Taiwan; Prof Kwok Chi Tat, associate professor of the Department of Electromechanical Engineering and interim director of the Institute of Applied Physics and Materials Engineering (IAPME), UM, Macao; Prof Tang Zikang, director of the Nano Science and Technology Program in the Department of Physics, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong; Prof Sammy Chan from the School of Materials Science and Engineering, University of New South Wales, Australia; Dr William M Cox, director and principal consultant of Corrosion Management Limited, the United Kingdom; Dr Alexander Khotsianovsky from Pisarenko Institute for Problems of Strength of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Ukraine; Prof Sigitas Tamulevičius, member of the European Materials Research Society and professor of the Physics Department, Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), Lithuania; and Dr Willi Pabst from the Department of Glass and Ceramics, University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague (UCT Prague), Czech Republic. The speeches covered a wide range of topics, including materials characterisation and testing, anti-corrosion materials, and ceramics materials.

The previous CMSE conferences were held in the mainland cities of Zhoushan, Xianning, and Shanghai, respectively. Papers accepted by this year’s conference will be published in SCI journals, including Materials Research Innovations, Strength of Materials, and Anti-Corrosion Methods and Materials.

“第四屆材料科學與工程國際會議”在澳門大學舉行,為從事材料科學及工程研究的專家學者提供一個交流平台,提高新材料在社會發展中的地位和作用。會議吸引逾200名來自17國的知名學者聚首一堂,共同探討及分享有關材料研究的最新成果。

是次國際研討會吸引來自世界各地不同領域的專家學者參與,對各種材料領域及其應用研究的現狀等作更深刻的探討,也為今後各類材料的研究、開發及應用等科研工作提供更多思路。研討會首場由英國劍橋大學材料科學與冶金系Harry Bhadeshia教授主講的有關新納米鋼材的研究成果反應熱烈,座無虛席。

與會學者還有加拿大多倫多大學材料科學及工程學系教授Harry E. Ruda、台灣成功大學材料科學及工程學系特聘教授陳貞夙、澳大應用物理及材料工程研究所代所長及機電工程系副教授郭志達、香港科技大學物理系納米材料與技術課程主任湯子康教授、澳洲新南威爾士大學材料科學與工程學院副教授陳立業、英國腐蝕管理有限公司總監兼首席顧問William M. Cox 博士、烏克蘭國家科學院皮薩連科力學研究所Alexander Khotsianovsky博士及歐盟材料研究學會會員,考納斯科技大學物理系教授Sigitas Tamulevičius、捷克布拉格化工大學玻璃陶瓷系副教授Willi Pabst等。他們就材料分析及測試,防腐材料、陶瓷材料及其他功能材料的研究成果進行深入探討,分享其研究理念。

歷屆材料科學與工程國際會議的成功召開,得到世界各地材料界人士的大力支持,首三屆會議分別在浙江舟山、湖北咸寧和上海召開。此次會議錄用的文章將根據文章領域出版至《SCI》期刊包括《Materials Research Innovations》 、 《Strength of Materials》和 《Anti-Corrosion Methods and Materials》。
