Scope & Invited speakers


The 5th International Conference on Rare Earth Materials conference is a continuation of preceding REMAT conferences (2008, 2011, 2013, 2015). The meeting aims to provide, particularly by keynote lectures, a broad overview of the current state of the art along with practical applications of physical phenomena in the rare-earths. The meeting is devoted to the different aspects of properties of rare earth materials and their innovative applications. It will showcase the latest research and advances in both the academic and commercial aspects of rare-earths. Speakers will share their knowledge from both an academic point of view as well as an industry point of view. The conference invites researchers, engineers, government officers and company delegates from the all fields of rare-earth to gather, present and share the results of their work in these areas and discuss future strategies for different types of activity.
