Advanced inorganic materials are gaining much more attentions due to their unique property combinations of structural behaviors and abundant functionalities for applications in the fields of energy, environment, aerospace, electronics, health, medicine, and many others. Following the successful previous Workshops on Advanced Inorganic Materials (WAIM 2015, WAIM 2016, WAIM 2017, WAIM 2018), we cordially invite you to attend the WAIM 2019. This workshop promotes the information exchange between the scholars, scientists, engineers and enterprisers from different research backgrounds and companies. Young researchers are especially welcome to participate.

The topics cover all aspects related to advanced inorganic materials including: Innovative processing and synthesis; Microstructure and interface tailoring; New functionalities and performance improvement; Mechanical properties and reliability prediction; Basic science, modeling and simulations; Industrial applications. This workshop will focus on porous ceramics, nuclear materials, high-entropy materials, and heat management materials.
