We are pleased to announce that the XVIII International Congress of Materials and Metallurgy SAM-CONAMET 2018 will take place in San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina, from Monday October 1 to Friday October 5 2018.  The meeting will be held on the Centro Atómico Bariloche (CNEA) and Instituto Balseiro (IB) premises.

The SAM-CONAMET and CONAMET-SAM Congresses are one of the largest Ibero-American conferences on Materials Science Research, Technology and Applications.  They serve the community of materials scientists with the opportunity of getting together in order to establish new contacts, to promote collaborations, to present the latest results and innovations and to allow the interchange of ideas and criticisms. Within the Congress there are also presentations of products and services from different companies.

These annual Congresses are alternately organized by the Argentinean Association of Materials (SAM) and the Chilean Society of Metallurgy and Materials (SOCHIM). Contributions to the Congress have increased over these 18 years. At present, more than 700 presentations (oral and poster sessions) are expected.

In this occasion, a short abstract, followed later by an extended abstract are required to be accepted before oral or poster presentations.  After the congress, a complete paper may be presented for publication in the SAM journal.
