Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure for us to invite you to attend The International Conference on Metallurgy & Materials (ICMM’16), which will be held in Sofia – the capital city of Bulgaria, within the period September 26 – 28, 2016.

The Conference is organized by The University of Chemical Technology and Metallurgy – Sofia, Bulgaria in partnership with the Bulgarian Association of the Metallurgical Industry and The Scientific and Technical Union of Mining, Geology and Metallurgy.

The major aim of the Conference is to present to the members from the sphere of metallurgy and materials, both from Bulgaria and from abroad, the condition of the branch, the evolving of the companies into leading hi-tech ones, as well as the horizons for development. The topics concern a broad range of issues that are of interest to researchers, manufacturers, businessmen and consumers of engineering materials and their products. We hope that the discussions on the represented topics will contribute to the more rational development and organization of the business, as well as to the enhancement of the contacts between education, science and business, which will be of mutual benefit.

Papers on various related topics are welcome in the field of metallurgy and materials. The different points of view, which will be shared by the academic and industrial practitioners, will contribute significantly to the Conference, thus building bridges between these areas of expertise.

The papers, which will be presented at ICCM’16, will be published in the Journal of Chemical Technology and Metallurgy.

Yours faithfully,

Mitko GEORGIEV, Rector of UCTM-Sofia, Bulgaria
