The 18th International Conference on Surface Modification of Materials by Ion Beams will be held September 15-20, 2013, at the Pine Bay Resort, Kusadasi, Izmir, Turkey. This conference spans a comprehensive range of topics, both fundamental and applied, that relate to current advances in the area of ion beam tailoring of surfaces and near-surface regions, in materials of all kinds, ranging from semiconductors and metals to polymers and bio materials.
A special new feature of this conference will be interdisciplinary presentations planned to highlight opportunities and scope for collaborative research embracing academic and industrial organizations and funding agencies, and featuring spokesmen from dynamic new enterprises in medical research, bio-technology, automotive technology, and advanced manufacturing . We are planning a set of special workshop/panel discussion sessions focused on current research challenges having potential for development of innovative ion-beam-based applications, in the general fields of Health, Automotive, and Manufacturing Technologies. Each panel will feature distinguished leaders in both the science and industrial arenas, as detailed on the SMMIB web site . All SMMIB2013 participants are encouraged to attend these sessions, bringing questions and ideas, and directly exploring prospects for new research collaborations in these emerging fields. Each of these sessions will be followed by an informal Reception, in which attendees may meet the Panelists directly.
Please check the Conference web site for the complete list of Conference Topics. As you will recognize, SMMIB2013 seeks to encompass new phenomena as well as emerging applications for ion beam technologies, ranging from nano-scale to macro-scale. Accordingly, on behalf of all the Organizers, I would like to warmly invite you to participate at SMMIB2013.
We sincerely hope that you will join us for the SMMIB2013 Conference. If you have questions, or need further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
