Event Details

The next Society and Materials conference, SAM-12 ,will take place in Metz, France on the 22 and 23th of May, 2018.

For 10 years, SAM conferences have been an international forum for exchanging on new methodologies, new concepts and new issues that connect materials and society from different perspectives, ranging from social to engineering sciences.

As such, they have been a laboratory for thought and for knowledge experiments, which have produced about 350 papers and introduced some of the best intuitions in these areas-which were then further developed elsewhere.

Issues and questions sitting at the heart of contemporary societal challenges and of expected paradigm shifts are also being covered as a kind of application lab. Some special disciplines like Material Flow Analysis or Life Cycle Assessment, have been at the core of the meetings, as long as they were focusing on new directions and on innovative methodologies. More scientific approaches, driven by social science, economics or material science have also been presented.

The focus was always on pluridisciplinarity and interdisciplinary. The 12th edition should reflect the same level of curiosity, inquisitiveness, intellectual boldness and innovative thinking as the previous ones! This is why we expect to listen to you in Metz!
