Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to attend the ECMetAC Days 2023 conference, which will take place in Hotel Kompas in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, from 27th to 30th November 2023. The conference is a continuation of the series ECMetAC Days, organized annually by a member institution of the European Integrated Center for the Development of Metallic Alloys & Compounds (ECMetAC, The ECMetAC Days 2023 conference is organized by the Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI), Ljubljana, and the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics. JSI is the organizer of a conference from this series for the second time, after C-MAC Days 2013 (the name of the conference has been changed to ECMetAC Days in the meantime).

ECMetAC Days 2023 will provide an excellent opportunity to present and get acquainted with the latest results in the field of newly discovered metallic alloys and compounds. The topics include formation, stability, synthesis, structural and chemical characterization, physical, chemical and mechanical properties, surfaces and thin films, catalysis, theory, applications and new frontiers in metallic materials. The materials of interest are (but are not limited to) conventional crystalline intermetallics, complex metallic alloys, quasicrystals and other aperiodic solids and soft matter, metallic glasses, high-entropy alloys, intermetallics for catalysis, correlated-electron systems, thermoelectrics, magnetocalorics and related materials. The topics are highly interdisciplinary and include mathematics, physics, chemistry, metallurgy and materials science.

We cordially invite you to join us at the ECMetAC Days 2023 in the beautiful Alpine resort of Kranjska Gora!

The ECMetAC Days 2023 main event will be preceded by a Workshop “Innovative Researcher: End-User Approach for Scientific Project Designing”, dedicated to young and mature members of our network. This year we shall also adopt a Design-Thinking approach to reinforce our performance in the field of science.

We cordially invite you to join us at the Workshop!
