Materials Congress 2000

May 05, 1999

Materials Congress 2000, the largest interdisciplinary event for the materials science and engineering community in the UK, will be held on 12-14 April 2000 at the Royal Agricultural College in Cirencester, Gloucestershire, UK.

Materials Congress 2000 will be the first major meeting of the millennium for materials engineers, industrialists, students, researchers and scientists and will include a comprehensive conference programme covering topics from the structure of materials and advanced processing techniques to biomimetics and materials education.

The latest developments in materials science and engineering will be on display at the Materials Research Exchange and Materials Industries Exhibition together with presentations, posters and a full social programme of activities.

Notes For Editors
1. Materials Congress 2000 will be the second such event and is organised by The Institute of Materials. The first Materials Congress was held at Cirencester in April 1998.
2. The Call For Papers for the conference will be issued at the end of May. Advance press copies will be available from Andrew McLaughlin.
3. The Institute of Materials is the professional organisation of the materials community. Members of the Institute work in areas involving the use and application of engineering materials such as metals, ceramics, polymers and composites.
