CMSC Conférences canadiennes en science des matériaux

CMSC 2018 – 30e édition de Canadian Materials Science Conference
Du 19-22 juin, 2018 à l’Université de l’Alberta

CMSC est un point de convergence de la communauté en science des matériaux au Canada et un excellent forum pour les universitaires et les professionnels de présenter leurs résultats et discuter des progrès dans le domaine de la science des matériaux .

Ce qui est offert au CMSC ?

  • Ateliers
  • Banquet
  • Concours d’affiches
  • Financement de l’étudiant

L’un des objectifs de la conférence est d’amener aux étudiants une appréciation pour les technologies des matériaux scientifiques en fournissant un forum amical mais intellectuellement stimulant pour la présentation de leurs efforts , ainsi que ceux des chefs de file dans la science canadienne et des matériaux mondiaux.

Président de la Conférence

The list of past D.K.C. MacDonald Memorial Lecturers and Award recipients clearly demonstrate the rich history associated with the Canadian Materials Science Conference. The Conference established its roots in 1951 when the late T. S. Hutchison, a professor of solid-state physics at the Royal Military College, and colleagues at Queens University, the University of Toronto, Alcan and the National Research Council began holding annual summer meetings at RMC. These meetings quickly became known as the Canadian Metal Physics Conference, with the self-proclaimed mission of fostering the development in Canada of a then modest research activity in physical metallurgy.

The continuing success of the conference, made possible in part by the organizing efforts of Wendy Jackson, attracted the interest of metallurgists engaged in chemical processing. In 1976, under the leadership of Professor J.M. Toguri of the University of Toronto, a metal chemistry component was added to the conference. In 1987, after an incredible 37 continuous years of Conference stewardship, Professor Hutchison relinquished his role to Professor W.T. Thompson. Shortly thereafter, to acknowledge changes that had taken place in the mission of most universities with metallurgical programs, the name of the Conference was changed to the Canadian Materials Science Conference.

The Conference was held at RMC until 2000, excepting 1996 and 1997, when the College was undergoing renovations. Since 2001, the Conference has been hosted at a different venue each year. Past hosts have included Carleton, Laurentian, Manitoba, Dalhousie, University of British Columbia, McMaster University, University of Alberta, University of Waterloo, UBC Okanagan, Western University, McGill University and University of Saskatchewan and most recently the Queen’s University. We are proud to host CMSC 2015 at the Dalhousie University in Halifax.

The conference maintains a significant student component. The importance of this emphasis is indicated by the names of past student award winners, many of whom now hold positions of considerable authority in universities, industry or research establishments. It is one of the aims of the conference to instill in students an appreciation and excitement for materials science technologies by providing a friendly but intellectually challenging forum for presentation of their endeavours, as well as those of leaders in Canadian and global materials science.
