9th International Conference on High Temperature Ceramic Matrix Composites (HTCMC 9) and Global Forum on Advanced Materials and Technologies for Sustainable Development (GFMAT 2016) (Archive)




Final Program


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—took place June 26–July 1st at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel, Toronto, Canada. The joint meeting addressed key issues, challenges, and opportunities in a variety of advanced materials and technologies that are critically needed for sustainable societal development.
