The primary objective of ConMat’15 is to create an environment of mutual cooperation between experts in Materials and Structures and provide a forum for active dialogue. The Organizers believe that it is only through such a multi-disciplinary approach that significant cross-fertilization of ideas can occur and innovative solutions to our infrastructure inadequacies can be found. Come and join us to be a part of this unique experience!
