Metfoam 2017

Dear Colleagues:

We are pleased to announce the upcoming International Conference on Porous Metals and Metallic Foams, “MetFoam 2017”, which will be held in Nanjing from September 14 to 17, 2017.

This is the 10th MetFoam conference and follows those successfully organized in Germany, Japan, Canada, Slovakia, Korea, USA and Spain. The conference will gather scientists and engineers all over the world interested in lightweight porous/cellular metals, their production, properties and their application in various fields. More than 200 international experts on these topics are expected and over 125 papers will be presented.

Nanjing is one of the historical and cultural capital cities in ancient times. Nanjing, the capital city of Jiangsu Province and the provincial political, economic and cultural center, is located in the lower reaches of Yangtze River, southwest of the province. Nanjing bears the reputation of the Capital of Ten Dynasties, being since the year 229 AD the capital of Wu, Eastern Jin, Song, Qi, Liang, Chen, Southern Tang, Taiping Kingdom and Republic of China subsequently.

We are looking forward to seeing you at MetFoam 2017 in Nanjing, China.

Best regards,

Hui-Ping Tang and Dong-Hui Yang
