20th International Metallurgy & Materials Congress (IMMC’2021) will take place on 10-12 June 2021.

IMMC’2021 will be held in Digital Platform by the invitation of the Training Center (METEM) of the Turkish Chamber of Metallurgical and Materials Engineers. Starting from the first congress held in 1975, IMMC congress series have been one of the prominent international conferences in the region on metallurgy, materials science and engineering to promote scientific exchange and cooperation by bringing together both academia and industry.

There will be 14 invited, 160 oral, and 142 poster presentations in the following symposiums:

Advanced Alloys and Processes for Aerospace; Materials for Energy; Nanomaterials; Biomaterials; Composite and Polymer Materials; Ceramics-Glass-Refractory Materials; Steelmaking; Non-Ferrous Metals; Casting; Mechanical Metallurgy; Surface Treatment and Heat Treatment; Welding Metallurgy; Corrosion and Wear; Quality Management and Non-Destructive Testing; Recycling and Sustainability.
