The Materials Science and Engineering Congress 2018 (MSE) was held September 26 – 28, 2018 in Darmstadt / Germany.
The congress promoting networking and exchange of ideas and know-how in the field of materials science and technology has been hosted already for the sixths time now. With more than 1,400 participants from 50 countries and 1,070 contributions, MSE 2018 was again a complete success.
Hosted by the German Materials Society (DGM – Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde e.V.) since 2008, the MSE has become the central platform for materials scientist and engineers to present their research to a large international community and to build networks across borders. This years’ guest country was Argentina represented by the Argentine Society of Materials (SAM Asociación Argentina de Materiales) and an ARG-GER committee.
The MSE congress is one of the largest international congresses in the field of Materials Science and Engineering across Europe. Every two years, numerous scientific questions in the field of Materials Science and Engineering are discussed in a variety of symposia, plenary lectures and the side events. An accompanying exhibition enables companies to present themselves and their products as well as the participants of the MSE Congress to get to know the latest trends in measurement technology and career opportunities in the economy.In addition to different side events, the DGM-Day with the DGM Forum for Young Talents is an integral part of the MSE.
The German Materials Society / Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde e. V. (DGM), founded in 1919, is the largest scientific and technical society in the field of materials science and engineering in Germany and a member of the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS). It represents the interests of its members and ensures a continuous development in terms of content, structure and personnel in the field of materials science and engineering.
