The 14th International Conference on Key Engineering Materials (ICKEM 2024)


The Conference Committee is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for The 14th 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. We are thrilled to invite researchers, academics, engineers, and industry professionals from around the world to join us for this prestigious event.


Previous ICKEM meetings were held in Sanya (China), Singapore, Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia), Bali (Indonesia), Singapore, Hong Kong (China), Penang (Malaysia), Osaka (Japan), Oxford (United Kingdom) and Madrid (Spain, Virtual), Moscow (Russai, Virtual), Udine, (Italy, Virtual) from 2011 to 2022, and Istanbul (Türkiye) in 2023. With the experience of running successful events in the ICKEM series over the past 13 years, we are confident that 2024 will witness an even greater success of the 14th edition of ICKEM during March 6-8, 2024 in Dubai, UAE again.


As we enter the 14th edition of this distinguished conference, we embrace the opportunity to engage in insightful discussions, unveil groundbreaking research, and chart the course for the future of engineering materials. From the microstructures that underpin material properties to the macroscopic applications that shape industries, our collective exploration knows no bounds.
