The 10th International Conference on Key Engineering Materials


The Conference Committee is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for The 10th 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 2020 is  co-sponsored by IACSIT and Universidad Complutense, Spain.


Previous ICKEM meetings were held in Sanya (China), Singapore, Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia), Bali (Indonesia), Singapore, Hong Kong, Penang (Malaysia), Osaka (Japan), and Oxford (United Kingdom) from 2011 to 2019. With the experience of running successful events in the ICKEM series over the past 9 years, we are confident that 2020 will witness an even greater success of the 10th edition of ICKEM.
