The event carries the theme “Challenge for the next generation” and it is stated that advanced technology and information for the “Environment” and “Energy Saving” will be introduced. Special session topics include:

  • Thermoelectric materials and devices for green energy harvesting
  • Nano-structured and/or nano reinforced metal/ceramic composite
  • Synthesis and processing of materials by Spark Plasma Sintering

Main oral and poster topics are set to include:

  • Powder Manufacturing & Processing
  • Powder Pressing
  • Sintering
  • Full Density & Alternative Consolidation
  • Powder Injection Moulding
  • Miniaturisation & Nanotechnology in PM
  • Secondary & Finishing Operations
  • Tools for Improving PM
  • Irons & Steels
  • Nonferrous & Special Materials
  • Lightweight & Porous Materials
  • Biomaterials
  • Hard Materials
  • Magnetic & Electric Materials
  • Functional Materials
  • PM for Current & Future Applications

All submitted papers will be reviewed and allocated to Oral or Poster Sessions by the Technical Program Committee, based on authors’ choices and acceptance notification will be e-mailed to the authors by the end of February 2012.

In a statement on the event website, the organising committee is seeking to reassure potential participants about the safety of attending the event.
