The Trento Innovation Conferences on Materials Engineering (TICME) are a series of conferences focusing on the research of innovative polymers, composites and biomaterials for special applications.
The 2019 edition partners with the International Silk Conference Series to organize Frontiers in Silk Sciences and Technologies, an event which will be devoted to the research of Silk-based materials and will bring together over 80 experts in the field of silk science and industry from all around the world, in order to overcome the current challenges in the Silk field.
The intent of the International Conference is to generate a multidisciplinary discussion around the key challenges in the field and to foster collaboration with the aim to give everyone an equal platform to showcase their science.
To keep this a focused meeting and ensure active discussion, we are limiting numbers of attendees to 110 people.
The event will be held at the Buonconsiglio Castle in Trento.
A participation certificate will be available for all attendees, confirming their conference attendance. The presentations will be considered as didactics of excellence, and will be part of the activities supported by two organizing Departments of Excellence of the University of Trento (funded by the Italian Ministry of University and Research, L. 232/2016).
Registration is now closed.
