The 11th International Conference on Key Engineering Materials


The Conference Committee is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for The 11th 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. ICKEM 2021 is  hosted by Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology(Skoltech), Moscow, Russia.


Established in 2011 in collaboration with MIT, Skoltech cultivates a new generation of researchers and entrepreneurs, promotes advanced scientific knowledge and fosters innovative technology to address critical issues facing Russia and the world. Skoltech applies the best Russian and international research and educational practices, with particular emphasis on entrepreneurship and innovation.


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, Spain(Virtual) from 2011 to 2020. With the experience of running successful events in the ICKEM series over the past 10 years, we are confident that 2020 will witness an even greater success of the 10th edition of ICKEM.

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 ICKEM2021 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!
