FIRST CIRCULAR - Instituto de Física del Litoral

The International Congress of Metallurgy and Materials, to be held during October 2014, encompasses the following scientific meetings: XIII IBEROMAT, 14◦ SAM/CONAMET, XIII MATERIA
Symposium and School on Nanostructured Porous Materials.
The International Congress of Metallurgy and Materials SAM-CONAMET/IBEROMAT 2014, which also encompasses the Materia Symposium 2014 and the School on Nanostructured Porous Materials, will take
place in Santa Fe, capital city of the same province, Argentina. The Santa Fe de la Vera Cruz city occupies
the 9th place among Argentina’s most populated cities, with 400,000 inhabitants, and is located in the
center-east region of the country. It is surrounded by the Setúbal lagoon, the Salado river and the Santa
Fe stream. The main venue of the event will be the historical building of the former Gral. Manuel Belgrano
railway station, which was renovated as a cultural and convention center.
The congress will be held during the International Year of
Crystallography, as was declared by the United Nations (UN),
being this one of the most relevant areas regarding the study and
characterization of materials.
The SAM-CONAMET/IBEROMAT congress is the greatest iberoamerican conference covering research,
technology and applications of Materials Science. The main objective of this congress is to bring together
the iberoamerican community in the field in order to establish contact between people, improve the integration and present and discuss in a critical way the latest developments and innovations in the Materials
Science area. Hence, this congress constitutes an update regarding cutting edge research on new materials and allows people to know about the current situation of research in the iberoamerican region.
During the years the congress has been growing in terms of number of participants, counting in its last
edition with assistants from more than 20 countries of Europe and The Americas presenting more than
700 works. In this edition, the presentation of about 800 works and more than 400 assistants coming
from academic, governmental, industrial and research fields are expected.
The current edition is organized through a series of plenary, semi-plenary, oral, poster and roundtable
presentations. The topics covered by the congress are:

INVITATION TO GRADUATE AND RECENTLY GRADUATED STUDENTS Graduate students and recently graduated students are invited to present their works at IBEROMAT. There will be a dedicated sector for this purpose
and presented works will be evaluated by the scientific committee. Works should be mainly of the students
authory, or even directly the abstract of their final graduation project or thesis. Those works developed in
collaboration with other researchers will not be allowed. Up to two authors per work will be permitted. Three
works will be selected for oral presentations during normal sessions and the rest of the accepted works will
be shown as poster presentations. Each student with an accepted work will receive a free registration benefit
and partial coverage of lodging. The presentations will be evaluated during the congress and there will be an
award for each category, namely graduate student and graduated student. The deadline for presentation is
the same as for IBEROMAT, where each student will have to make clear that the presented work is a student
The Materia Symposium was created by a group of latin-american researchers who are also responsible for the journal Revista Materia ( and for the Itinerant School of
Materials. The realization sequence includes: Valparaíso, Chile (I:1995); Bariloche, Argentina (II:1996
and VIII:2003); Montevideo, Uruguay (III:1997); Caracas, Venezuela (IV:1998); Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
(V:2000); Mexico City, Mexico (VI:2001); Santiago, Chile (VII:2002); Arequipa, Peru (IX:2004); Cartagena de índias, Colombia (X:2005); Morelia, Mexico (XI:2007); Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (XII: 2010). In its
thirteenth version the Materia Symposium will take place again in Argentina, at Santa Fe city. During this
meeting the main issue will be about nanostructured materials and, also, the symposium will include a
Summer School about nanostructured porous materials.

The school is part of the itinerant schools that have accompanied the Materia symposium. In this edition
the main subject will be nanostructured porous materials, in line with the symposium topics. Depending on the availability of funds, an economic assistance will be offered for students participating in the
school. The lectures will be in spanish, portuguese or english. The school will take place previous to the
symposium, from October 18 to 20, 2014, in the Auditorium at the B. Houssay building, located in 3450
Güemes street (150 m far from Belgrano railway station). The activities during the school will include
24 lectures of 55 minutes each, being divided in three main general topics:
1. Nanostructured porous materials synthesis
2. Porosity models and characterization of porous materials
3. Applications of nanostructured porous materials

Despite the fact that the event is divided in two sub-events, namely congress (SAM-CONAMET-IBEROMAT)
and symposium (MATERIA), the registration process is the same. In turn, registration to School will have
certain particular considerations regarding admission since there will be a priori a limited quota of assistants. This is to say that any registered person will be able to assist to any of the plenary, semiplenary,
oral, poster presentations, etc., independently of the event they belong to.
The registration process consists of three stages, as follows:
1. Preregistration
2. Early registration
3. Late registration
Required only for those who submit an abstract
Required for all who assist to the event, independently if presenting work or not
Will contemplate registrations after the deadline for
early registration

Abstract submission will be available through an OCS (Open Conference System), which will be at disposal from March 1st 2014. This system requires a user registration step (with corresponding password),
which will be needed for preregistration. Abstracts should be written in spanish or english and the maximum allowed length is 300 (three-hundred) words. As said before, preregistration is only required for
those who are willing to present their work/s at the congress. For each accepted abstract, the payment of
early registration by at least one of the authors will be required. Each OCS registered user will be able
to submit up to 3 (three) works.
The works presented at the congress will be electronically published and endorsed under an ISBN
code. The possibility of publishing the congress Proceedings in an indexed international journal is being
