Call for Abstracts Deadline (extension): December 17, 2018.
The purpose of MetFoam conference series is to provide a state-of-the-art review on lightweight porous metals and metallic foams and a forum for discussions and networking opportunities for scientists working in this field. Topics planned for MetFoam 2019 include:
A metal foam is a cellular structure consisting of a solid metal with pores making up a large portion of the volume. A defining characteristic of metal foams is their high porosity typically on 5–25% of the volume is the base metal, making these ultralight materials with applications including energy (e.g., catalysis, fuel cells), biomaterials (e.g., bone implants), and transportation (e.g., sound dampening, energy absorption).
