25th International Conference on Materials and Technology (25 ICM&T) will be held in Grand Hotel Bernardin in Portorož, Slovenia.

25th International Conference on Materials and Technology (25 ICM&T) is a meeting of professionals from science institutes, universities and industry that are active in the fields of:

      - metallic materials,  
      - biomaterials,
      - composite materials,
      - ceramics,
      - polymers,
      - additive manufacturing,
      - nanomaterials,
      - simulation and modelling.

The main goal of the 25
th Conference on Materials and Technology (25 ICM&T) is to establish a dialogue between the needs of industry and the research of the academic sphere, and it represents a platform for efficient transfer of knowledge from research institutions to industry.

A special section dedicated to students is a long-established tradition of the conference. Young researchers will be given an opportunity to present their works in 10-minute oral presentations including discussion as well as in poster presentations. Young researcher participants competing in poster session should be present at their posters for short 3-minute presentations. An international jury panel will award the best presentations.

Awards in amount of:

Two first prizes for oral presentation are awarded 300 EUR,
Two second prizes for oral presentation are awarded 200 EUR,

An award for best poster presentation 200 EUR.

In order to avoid non-ecological paper consumption all conference materials will be available on electronic media, included in the conference fee.
