The 13th International Conference on Key Engineering Materials (ICKEM 2023)


The Conference Committee is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for The 12th International Conference on Key Engineering Materials. We invite all those wishing to participate to submit a proposal to present their work, which can be a lecture, a workshop, a poster exhibition, or special session, addressing the Key Engineering Materials through one of the official topics.


Previous ICKEM meetings were held in Sanya (China), Singapore, Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia), Bali (Indonesia), Singapore, Hong Kong, Penang (Malaysia), Osaka (Japan), Oxford (United Kingdom) and Madrid (Virtual), Moscow (Virtual), Udine, Italy(Virtual) from 2011 to 2022. With the experience of running successful events in the ICKEM series over the past 11 years, we are confident that 2023 will witness an even greater success of the 13th edition of ICKEM during March 24-26, 2023, which is sponsored by Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Due to the severe impact of the epidemic, the organizing committee supports online attendance and an online registration option is also offered. The main goal of ICKEM2023 is to hold onsite to gather all the scholars for communication face to face. The detailed conference venue is updated. But the health and safety of our participants is our top priority. Thanks for your kind understanding!
