The EUROMAT conferences have been held every two years since 1989, and have an increased record of bringing together up to 2000 researchers, scientists, trainees, and students from both academia and industry to discuss critical developments and perspectives in the field of materials science and technology and their applications. In 2015, the symposia within the conference will be grouped under the main headings: (A) Functional Materials, (B) Structural Materials, (C) Processing, (D) Characterization and Modelling, (E) Energy and Environment, and (F) Biomaterials and Healthcare, and there will be additional contributions on (G) Education, Technology Transfer and Strategic Materials.

The programme will include plenary lectures, parallel sessions and poster presentations. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed for quality and impact. Accepted abstracts will be assigned to oral or poster sessions, and will appear in the programme booklet. An industrial exhibition will accompany the event and a social program as well.

EUROMAT2015 marks the first time that a conference in this series has been held in Poland. Warsaw, Poland’s capital and largest city, is an economic, political, and cultural centre. It is a city with a rich history, and a wonderful combination of modern urban development and historical architecture.
