Recent Appointees in Materials Science (RAMS) 2018

The Journal of Materials Chemistry family of journals is proud to support the Recent Appointees in Materials Science 2018.

The Recent Appointees in Materials Science (RAMS) 2018 is the only UK national conference specifically aimed at recent appointees. RAMS 2018 is supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry Materials Division and it has been running since 2010 at different UK locations including Lancaster, Coventry, Bath, Exeter and now Cardiff. Cardiff University has taken the responsibility of organising it this year on the 10th and 11th of September 2018. The Conference aims to cover a broad range of subjects in Materials Science (from inorganic materials and functional nanomaterials, to biological, soft matter and electronic materials), to help recent appointees in academia and industry to build their national collaborative networks, exchange experiences and benefit from peer support.

Visit the website: http://www.rams2018.org/

Send your abstract by 16th July 2018

Early bird registration deadline: 21st July 2018

In addition our colleagues from Chemistry are organising Recent Appointees in Inorganic Chemistry (MICRA) 2018 and they are holding their event at the same time and venue as (RAMS) therefore this will be an amazing opportunity in terms of networking.
