Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend The 18th Israel Materials Engineering Conference (IMEC-18) which will be held this year at the Leonardo Club Hotel Dead Sea, on February 6-8, 2018. This Biennial International Conference is the major meeting of the materials science and engineering community in Israel, featuring innovations in the materials related research. IMEC-18 follows the tradition of previous IMEC Conferences and will bring together material scientists and engineers from academia, research institutes and the industry. The Conference will provide an excellent platform for networking, exchange of information, discussions, exploring new joint research programs and revealing future opportunities.

IMEC-18 topics include all aspects of materials science, both fundamental and applied. The scientific program will include presentations by renowned specialists and distinguished guest speakers from Israel and abroad on recent advances in the field of materials science and engineering. The program will cover traditional materials science topics such as: classical metallurgy, materials characterization, computational materials science, polymers and corrosion; as well as novel fields of interests such as nanomaterials, biomaterials, materials for energy, semiconductors, ferroelectrics and many others.

We encourage you to take this opportunity and benefit from the invited and contributed talks to be presented in plenary and parallel sessions, poster session, visit the extensive commercial exhibition and enjoy the Conference Banquet.

We look forward to welcoming you at IMEC-18 and to sharing with you a stimulating Conference.

Professor Louisa Meshi
Conference Chairperson
