EUROMAT is the premier international congress in the field of materials in Europe, and will in 2017 take place in Thessaloniki, Greece, from 17–22 September 2017. For the first, it will this year offer a topic area on Raw Materials. Among this area, ESM will co-host a session on “Materials Life Cycle Approach and Flow Analysis”.
The topic area will be presented by European experts and by experts from the United States of America, with a special emphasis from TMS, the Minerals, Metals and materials Society. ESM Foundation, in collaboration with EIT Raw Materials, is glad to host one of these sessions.
More than 2000 participants are expected to attend EUROMAT 2017, not only from the European countries but also from the Americas, Asia and Australia. This year is a very important year for the conference as the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS) celebrates its 30th year, and several events will be organized to highlight the special occasion.
We look forward to receiving your abstracts soon. Contributions on different angles and methodologies are welcome – besides life cycle assessment and materials flow analyses also related and modified approaches such as criticality analyses, life cycle sustainability assessment, value-chain mapping, economic input-output LCA, or socio-economic assessment. The deadline for abstract submission is March 10, 2017; please find more information on the webpage: http://euromat2017.fems.eu/call-for-abstracts/
