THERMEC'2020 is the 11th International Conference on the advanced materials series built upon the proven concept and continues the tradition of its seven predecessors, Japan - 1988, Australia - 1997, USA - 2000, Spain - 2003, Canada - 2006, Germany - 2009, Canada  - 2011, Las Vegas/USA - 2013, Graz/Austria - 2016, Paris/France - 2018 and Vienna/Austria - 2020.

THERMEC conference provides a forum that connects professionals (engineers, technologists, researchers) working in industry, academia and government research labs in various countries in Europe, USA, Canada, Japan, Korea, PR China, India, Brazil, Southeast Asia and Russia and allows them to present their research findings in the overall field of science and technology of processing, fabrication and manufacturing of advanced materials.


The conference will cover all aspects of processing, fabrication, structure/property avaluation and applications of both ferrous and non- ferrous materials, composites including biomaterials, high temperature materials, fuel cells/hydrogen storage technologies, batteries, super capacitors, thermoelectric materials, nanomaterials for energy and structural applications, aerospace structural metallic materials, bulk metallic glasses, UFGM, TMP of fission materials (fuel cladding, structural), high entropy alloys, materials & technologies in fusion reactors, additive manufacturing, smart/intelligent materials, modelling & simulation, welding/Joining- FSW-P, interfaces/Gbs & neutron scattering/X rays studies and materials performance of advanced materials.  

Oral and poster presentations dealing with various conference topics will be included in the conference program. In addition to the contributed papers, the conference committee has invited eminent internationally known researchers in key areas of advanced materials processing/manufacturing from various countries to deliver state-of-the art Plenary/Keynote lectures at THERMEC'2020.

Eminent experts from various countries will also deliver Plenary/Keynote lectures at THERMEC'2020.


THERMEC'2020 will be held at the AUSTRIA CENTER VIENNA situated along the enchanting Danube river in Vienna not far from the centre of this beautiful city.
