IUMRS International Conference of Young Researchers on Advanced Materials (ICYRAM) 2012 Print E-mail


Organized by the MRS Singapore in association with the IUMRS
Co-Sponsored by the IMI-SEE
July 1-6, 2012 in Singapore


The International Union of Materials Research Societies (IUMRS) is launching a new Global Materials Network (GMN). As an inaugural meeting of GMN, IUMRS is pleased to announce a new conference designed specifically with young researchers in mind, the International Conference of Young Researchers on Advanced Materials (ICYRAM).

The mission of ICYRAM is to provide a platform for young researchers to present technical findings of their research, to network within the international community of other young researchers, and to increase the breadth of their general materials-based knowledge.  There will also be opportunities for young researchers to seek the insight and advice of successful senior researchers through plenary sessions and instructive seminars.

Panel sessions will be held in both small and large settings, for focused and general discussions.  The aim is to create an environment for interaction and the exchange of perspectives across a broad range of materials-related topics.  In the spirit of international collaboration, there will be a special Project Planning Session where young researchers will work together to write joint pre-proposals.    

The technical program will emphasize materials falling under 6 general themes:
Biomaterials and Healthcare
Optical Materials
Energy and the Environment
Electronic Materials
Magnetic and Spintronic Materials
Carbon-based Materials

Speakers will include:
Michael Graetzel, Ecole Polytechnique de Lausanne
Stuart Parkin, IBM
Federico Rossei, Université du Québec
Joerg Heber, Nature
Christian Joachim, CNRS

Travel Support:

The IMI-SEE is no longer accepting applications for travel support.
