2019 International Conference on Advanced Materials and Applications (AMA 2019)

About AMA 2019

In 21st century, mankind faces dual challenges of energy distribution and global warming. To reduce the carbon emission to below 2ºC by 2050, we need to reduce our use of fossil fuels (carbon emission) from the current carbon emission level of about 50Gt/year to about 23 Gt/year. To keep the global warming in check, we need to hit 1.5ºC that means to reduce carbon to about 8Gt/year.  If no effective measures are taken by the world, according to current policy trajectory, we will reach 70Gt/year carbon emission by 2050. Carbon neutral and/or zero carbon technologies are urgently needed to avert ever increasing draught, flooding, wild fires, etc.

Advanced material is the foundation of new generation of sustainable technologies. With the assistance from computational material science, and nanotechnology derived manipulation, characterization capabilities, a new generation of advanced materials is emerging.  Considering the fact that world population is growing, and mineral and ores are dwindling, the focus of our future materials would have to be carbon neutral, sustainable, and multifunctional. Hopefully the surface would be multifaceted to induce much higher functionalities, such as self-adjusting properties, self-adaptable microstructural shifts, the ability to reduce friction, drag, and changing conductivity and even icephobic.  Some of properties require multiscale, hierarchical structures to manifest. This new class of materials in general can be referred to as multiscale, multifunctional materials.

In view of this development, it is our sincere with to organize this new conference on Advanced Materials and Applications to gather forefront researchers around the world to network, and exchange our ideas.

Our conference theme is from Concept to Applications, similar to the translational research term often used in biomedical field.  In this conference, we will explore new materials discovery, multiscale multifunctional surface design and fabrication, characterization and testing of new materials, and the potential for new technologies.

We welcome your contribution and hope you can join us to undertake this new venture into the future.

Prof. Stephen Hsu
Honorary Chair of the conference.
