ASM International has announced its first annual International Materials Applications & Technologies Conference and Exhibition (IMAT). The conference and exhibition, to be held September 14-17, 2020, in Cleveland, Ohio, will include a wide range of technical sessions, education courses, keynotes, networking and an exhibition. The theme of the conference, Solving Global Material Challenges, allows for a comprehensive range of programming designed to appeal to materials professionals in industry, academia and government.
IMAT will bring together all of ASM’s committees and six affiliates, along with market partners, to create a conference and exhibition with a strong focus on application-oriented, real-world materials technologies that can be used today and into the future. In addition to ASM’s committees and affiliates, other materials sectors will be represented by industry partners Ceramic Industry and NACE International. Ceramic Industry will provide valuable content from the ceramics market segment, and NACE International will deliver critical information on corrosion-control topics. ASM is eager to provide attendees and exhibitors with a new range of materials topics and interests by partnering with other organizations.
