within the conference program. Events will run over a span of time during the conference depending on the number and length of the presentations.
With its high quality, it provides an exceptional value for students, academics and industry researchers.
International Conference on Refractories and Hard Materials
aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of
Refractories and Hard Materials.
It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations,
trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Refractories and Hard Materials.
Call for Contributions
Prospective authors are kindly encouraged to contribute to and help shape the conference through submissions of their research abstracts, papers and e-posters.
Also, high quality research contributions describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or
theoretical work in all areas of Refractories and Hard Materials are cordially invited for presentation at the conference.
The conference solicits contributions of abstracts, papers and e-posters that address themes and topics of the conference, including figures, tables and references of
