            best research works were awarded with a scholarship to attend de XXIV IMRC.

            12 scholarships were given this year

  • Posters awards

            The SMM and the Materials Research Society (MRS) have an agreement under which the poster award winners of the 2015 MRS Spring Meeting in San Francisco displayed their work at the XXIV IMRC in Cancun. In exchange, the three best posters winners of XXIV IMRC displayed their work at the 2016 MRS Spring Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona

 

2.- University Chapters

4 New University Chapters started their activities in 2015. Making 7 University Chapters in México. With a total of 199 Students

The Sociedad Mexicana de Materiales supports these chapters in organizing an annual symposium. 6 University Chapters held an annual symposium in 2015

 

3.- “Harmonized standardization of materials characterization techniques”. A collaboration with the National Metrology Center (CENAM) in Mexico.

CENAM and the SMM organized a technical aptitude test for surface analysis techniques

10 Research Centers participated in the “Determination of % mass fraction of Cu an Au in copper-gold alloys using X ray energy dispersive spectrometry and X ray spectrometry wavelength dispersion”

The ultimate purpose of this work was for the participants to know their analytical performance, and if it were the case, the participants would be prepared for the accreditation of laboratories in this type of measurements.

This activity will continue in 2016 with two more techniques

4.- Science and Materials Engineering a Prospective in México

The Prospective of the Science and Engineering of Materials aims to identify the strengths of the Scientific and Industrial Sectors in México

This study has two stages. In the first stage, personnel that work on research and development in Materials Science and Engineering have been identified and a preliminary classification of the main areas has been done.

2748 researchers have been identified.
