Welcome from the Chairs

Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to join the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Metals, which will be hosted online from 5 to 7 May 2025.

As one of the pillar technologies that support the development of modern society, metallurgy, and Metals play a crucial role in addressing major societal challenges. In recent decades with rapid technological advances, metallic materials have been extended to many emerged technological fields for a wider range of applications, not only used as structural materials but also as functional ones. IECME 2025 will present the state-of-the-art of Metallurgy and Metals related to the following topics:

S1. Experiment, Computation, AI, and Machine-learning on Metals
S2. Metallic Materials Chemistry
S3. Microstructure of Metals and Alloys
S4. Entropic Alloys and Meta-Metals
S5. Metallic Functional/ Electronics Materials
S6. Additive manufacturing
S7. Corrosion, Wear, and Protection
S8. Metallic Materials Processing
S9. Metallic Materials for Biomedical Applications

IECME 2025 will enable you to share and discuss your most recent research findings with the worldwide vibrant community of scientists and engineers in the field.

IECME 2025 will make your presentation accessible to hundreds of researchers worldwide, with the active engagement of the audience in question-and-answer sessions and discussion groups that will take place online.

The conference committee will review the submitted abstracts. The authors of accepted contributions will be invited to produce an extended abstract for the conference proceedings along with a slide presentation of their work. Following the conference, outstanding contributions will be invited to be submitted as a full-length paper for publication in Metals.

We hope you will join us, present your work at IECME 2025, and be part of this exciting online event.

Best regards,

Potential Conflicts of Interest

It is the author's responsibility to identify and declare any personal circumstances or interests that may be perceived as inappropriately influencing the representation or interpretation of clinical research. If there is no conflict, please state "The authors declare no conflicts of interest." This should be conveyed in a separate "Conflict of Interest" statement preceding the "Acknowledgments" and "References" sections at the end of the manuscript. Any financial support for the study must be fully disclosed in the "Acknowledgments" section.


MDPI, the publisher of the platform, is an open access publisher. We believe authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting an abstract to this conference, you retain the copyright to the work, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this abstract online on the platform. This means you can easily submit your full paper (with the abstract) to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher if required.

To acknowledge the support of the conference's esteemed authors and recognize their outstanding scientific accomplishments, we are pleased to announce that the conference will provide 6 awards including the Best Oral Presentation Award and the Best Poster Presentation Award.

The Awards
Best Oral Presentation Award and Best Poster Award

Number of Awards Available: 6

The Best Oral Presentation Award is given to the paper judged to make the most significant oral contribution to the conference.
