The Future of Materials Engineering - Dramatic Innovation to the next 100 years

Program Theme

It has been only about 100 years since the model of atom was introduced by Bohr. Since then, our knowledge of Materials Science and Engineering has progressed remarkably. Nowadays, we can control phenomena at the atomic size using nanotechnology, and we can predict how atoms behave in materials using supercomputer simulations. These advances were almost inconceivable 100 years ago. What equally dramatic innovations in technology can we expect during the next 100 years?
The main goal of this program is to discuss the next generation of Materials Engineering with emeritus professors involved with great advances in modern Materials Engineering, current professors engaged in cutting edge research, and young scientists and students who will be the leaders of the next generation. We will focus on the topics of Structural Materials, Electrical Materials and their Computer Simulations. This program will also have oral and poster presentations by postdoctoral and doctoral students. We hope that this symposium will encourage young scientists and students in their studies and research in these areas.
