About the Conference

The Conference SM-2023 follows up on previous biennial conferences organized by Slovak Metal Science Society, which took place from 1997 in Bratislava, Košice, Trnava and Žilina. The main goal is the exchange of the latest knowledge, especially in the field of structural engineering materials. The conference also aims to create conditions for deepening existing and establishing new personal and professional contacts. The conference is focused on the following areas:

  • structural materials (steels, cast irons, non-ferrous metal alloys, ceramics, polymers, composites, powder metallurgy) – structure, properties, applications;
  • modification of metallic material properties (thermal and thermochemical treatment, surface treatment, coating, etc.);
  • structural analysis, mechanical and physical properties;
  • production, recycling, sustainability, industrial applications, etc.

Language: English

Author notification letters will be sent by e-mail to the individual who submitted the abstract. Keynote Lectures are scheduled for 30 minutes per talk: 25 minutes for speaking and 5 minutes for discussion. Oral Lectures are scheduled for 20 minutes per talk: 15 minutes for speaking and 5 minutes for discussion. The keynote speakers will answer the questions of the conference participants also during the final Panel Discussions.
