Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Local Organizing and Scientific Committees, it is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 19th Israel Materials Engineering Conference (IMEC2021), to be held in Tel-Aviv on December 13–14, 2021. This internationally recognized vibrant conference is the 19th installment of an ongoing series, first held in 1981. It is the central conference of the materials community in Israel, combining fundamental and applied research. It brings together academia, research institutes, industry, investors, non-government organizations, and government representatives to exchange information, consolidate joint research programs, and discuss commercial endeavors and future opportunities.

The conference will attempt to reflect the recent breakthroughs in the field. It will cover a broad range of topics, including nanomaterials, biomaterials, materials for energy systems, cleantech, advanced characterization techniques, and more.

The broad coverage by IMEC2021 should provide scientific inspiration and stimulation to an interdisciplinary audience, including materials, mechanical, electrical, chemical, aeronautical, biomedical, environmental, and nuclear engineers, as well as chemists,physicists, archaeologists, and professionals in life sciences and medicine. Each day, several plenary presentations will be given by internationally renowned scientists discussing novel classes of materials and advanced characterization techniques, emphasizing their role in global development. We are both honored and proud of the distinguished guest speakers from abroad that have confirmed their participation in IMEC2021! The conference will also include specialized topical sessions, poster sessions, and a commercial exhibition. 

The commercial exhibition will feature the latest equipment, materials, and services available in Israel. The Local Organizing Committee made sure to enable a large exhibition venue with modern facilities and sufficient opportunities for interaction. We also decided to subsidize the registration fees for students, making it easier for them to attend. Exhibitors and sponsors are invited to contact us or the conference secretariat in order to learn more about possible contributions to the conference.

We hope to have the honor of welcoming you to IMEC2021.

Note: The conference will be taken place as a “face-to-face” mode and thus will be conducted under “TAV YAROK” and updated COVID19 instructions.
