IMEE – Innovation in Material for Extreme Environments

22 November 2017 - 24 November 2017

This event will benefit policy makers as a promotional tool for current and foreseeable development areas.

The event will benefit engineers in industry who are dealing with the critical challenges of extending the extreme environment range over which materials can be used. The meeting is open to everyone. However, registration is required and spaces are limited. Included are national and international invited speakers, who are world leaders in their respective fields. This is a high-quality networking opportunity (for policy makers, inventors, customer suppliers, industry and academia). Promotional material and the latest research results in material relevant to the theme of the meeting will be displayed and discussed.

The event will be a unique opportunity for policy makers, industry and academia to share knowledge and develop collaborations, and will act as a forum for innovation and collaboration, an opportunity to network, as well as acquire new insight and expert advice.

Forum format

The forum will run over two and a half days and will consist of plenary talks, invited and oral presentations, poster sessions, and a commercial organisation exhibition. The first day will concentrate on policies and funding for innovation in materials. Technology-based talks, a technical exhibition and poster sessions will form Day Two. Various sessions and a poster session focused on the fundamental understanding of materials and coating for extreme environments will form the agenda for Day Three.

The meeting will include discussions on:

  • Industry requirements for extreme environment materials

  • Key challenges facing the materials suppliers and OEMs, and potential collaborations to meet those challenges
