The next ECMetAC Days will be organised from 21st till 24th November by The University of Split, Faculty of Science. The main purpose of ECMetAC Days is to provide comprehensive information on recent results achieved within the current year of the ECMetAC network and to discuss directions for future research. Contributions will cover the field of metallic alloys and compounds ranging from basic to application oriented research: Development of new metallic alloys and compounds, Structure determination, stability, Physical, chemical and mechanical properties, Surfaces of complex metallic alloys Materials for thermoelectricity and magneto-caloric application, Quantum materials, Materials for catalysis, Coating technologies, Complexity in periodic and aperiodic metallic alloys and compounds (theory and experiment), and High-entropy alloys. More details will be available soon on our website!
The SCTE Conference, organized biannually, is traditionally aimed to provide a platform to discuss recent discoveries and progress in research on solid compounds containing d- and f-electron elements - in the field of solid state chemistry, physics and materials sciences. It is also a unique opportunity to exchange ideas with other scientists in informal atmosphere and to start new collaboration.

The 9th Conference on Aperiodic Crystals was held on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa during the week of July 8-13, 2018. This International meeting is held every three years and is the flagship meeting of the Commission on Aperiodic Crystals (CAC) of the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr).
This workshop was centred on defect structures, mechanical properties and deformation mechanisms of CMA phase. This meeting was an opportunity for very open discussions including comparison with other types of complex materials even non metallic.
- AGH University, Krakow, Poland
ICQ12 provided an excellent opportunity to learn about new results in the field of quasicrystals and related topics. The ICQ12 followed the Nobel Prize given to Dan Shechtman in 2011 for the discovery of quasicrystals. Professor Shechtman was an honourable guest of the Conference.
