An annual event held this year from May 23 to 25, ICCMP has established itself as a leading global forum for expert practitioners and researchers working in the most advanced fields of study related to theoretical and practical aspects of the chemical materials and processes field.

Members of the academic committee at the event included Associate Professor Gustaaf Schoukens of Belgium’s Ghent University, Associate Professor Yebin Xu of China’s Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Associate Professor Javad Foroughi of Australia’s University of Wollongong, and Associate Professor Aleksey Vasiliev of East Tennessee State University in the United States.
