Join iWAYS at the 9th International Conference on Material Science & Smart Materials – MSSM 2023


iWAYS representatives will be co-chairing the 9th International Conference on Materials Science and Smart Materials – MSSM 2023, on 19-21 June in Reggio Emilia, Italy.

MSSM 2023 provides a forum for both academic researchers and industrial practitioners from around the world to present papers on recent developments in the fields of Materials Characterisation, Design, Development, Manufacturing and Application.

iWAYS project coordinator Prof. Luca Montorsi from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and iWAYS technical director Prof. Hussam Jouhara from Brunel University are delighted to be co-chairing this 2023 edition of MSSM in the beautiful city of Reggio Emilia in Italy on June 19-21 and welcome research papers by internationally recognised experts as well as young scientists working in the field of Materials Science and Smart Materials.

The conference particularly welcomes papers related to industrial based projects on topics such as:

Metallic Materials
Ceramics / Glassy Materials
Composite Materials
Polymeric Materials
Electronic Materials
Fundamental Materials Science
Materials Applications, Performance and Life Cycle
Materials Property and Characterization
Nanostructured Materials
Sensors and structural identification
Active polymers, materials and actuators
Smart Biomaterials and Bioinspired Smart Materials and Systems
Energy Storage Materials and Energy Harvesting
Quantum Materials and Metamaterials
3D Printing and Smart Coatings and Surfaces
Magnetic Materials and Smart Materials for Specific Applications
