Meeting Desciption

Global population growth and tremendous economic development has brought us to the crossroads of long-term sustainability and risk of irreversible changes in the ecosystem—energy efficient and eco-friendly technologies and systems are critically needed for future growth and sustainable development.


While ceramic matrix composites were originally developed to overcome problems associated with the brittle nature of monolithic ceramics, the composites offer energy efficient and eco-friendly applications, including aerospace, ground transportation, and power-generation systems. Many other advanced materials can offer novel solutions, too.


HTCMC 9—in conjunction with GFMAT 2016—takes place June 26–July 1st at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel, Toronto, Canada. The joint meeting will address key issues, challenges, and opportunities in a variety of advanced materials and technologies that are critically needed for sustainable societal development.
