The Conference Committee is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for The 9th International Conference on Key Engineering Materials. We invite all those wishing to participate to submit a proposal to present their work, which can be a lecture, a workshop, a poster exhibition, or special session, addressing the Key Engineering Materials through one of the official topics.

Previous ICKEM meetings were held in Sanya (China), Singapore, Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia), Bali (Indonesia), Singapore, Hong Kong, Penang (Malaysia), and Osaka (Japan) from 2011 to 2018. With the experience of running successful events in the ICKEM series over the past 8 years, we are confident that 2019 will witness an even greater success of the 9th edition of ICKEM.
