The 3rd International Electronic Conference on Materials Sciences


Welcome Message from the Chair of the 3rd International Electronic Conference on Materials Science and Engineering

I am pleased to welcome you to the 3rd International Electronic Conference on Materials (ECMS 2018). The first and second editions of this conference held in 2014 and 2016 respectively, were a great success that encouraged the organizing committee to continue this tradition by launching the 3rd edition of this event from May 14 to 28 in 2018. Throughout this event, we aim to cover the following topics:

  • Topic A: Materials Characterization
  • Topic B: Nanotechnology in Material sciences and Engineering
  • Topic C: Manufacturing Processes and Systems
  • Topic D:  Biomaterials
  • Topic E: Fibers and Membranes 
  • Topic F: Optical, Electrical and Magnetic Materials

This is a virtual conference held at http://sciforum.net/conference/ecms2018. Sciforum.net is the platform developed by MDPI and sponsored by the Open Access Journal Materials to organize electronic conferences, and to provide our community with the technical support for hosting our digital events. This platform is set in response to the high demand from our community whom might not have always required material and human resources for travelling and participating physically in high quality scientific events. 

ECMS 2018 provides the participants with the unique opportunity to disseminate among their peers, in an open forum, their knowledge and latest research finding in materials field and receive immediately rich feedback from the virtual audience towards their future research directions.

The participation is free of charge – both for authors and attendees. Accepted papers will be gathered in the proceedings of the conference, and selected papers will be published in Materials through invitation from the Editor-in-Chief of Materials. 

I am very enthusiastic about this third addition of e-conference in Materials and am relying of you to make it a successful event again.

Conference Chair

Professor Maryam Tabrizian
Maryam Tabrizian is professor in the Biomedical Engineering Department and the Faculty of Dentistry at McGill University. She was FRSQ-Chercheure nationale awardee (2006-2011), elected as fellow of Royal Society of Canada in 2017, became Guggenheim Fellow in Biomedical Sciences in 2010 and the Fellow of the Biomaterials Science & Engineering (FBSE) in 2011 for her contribution to the field of Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Sciences. She received her PhD degree in Physical Sciences with a multidisciplinary background including physics, chemistry and biology from Université Pierre et Marie Curie-École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie de Paris in 1990. She was the director of the Centre for Biorecognition and Biosensors (CBB) for 10 years that she has founded in 2001. She is internationally known for her work in the in design of functional and bioactive biointerface as well as advanced biomaterials for their application in nanomedicine and regenerative medicine as well as for Lab-on a Chip devices. She is the author of more than 170 peer-reviewed papers in her field of expertise, over 95 invited lectures, many book chapters, patents, and over 350 scientific communications and outreach activities. She is currently the Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Materials, Associate Editor of the Journal of Biological Engineering (JBI), and the International Journal of Biomaterials Research and Engineering (IJBRE).
