About CCAM 2019

The Collaborative Conference on Advanced Materials (CCAM 2019) will be held from August 26 to 30, 2019 in St. Julian’s, Malta!

The Collaborative Conference on Advanced Materials aims to be a unique platform for leading scientists, researchers, scholars and engineers from academia, R&D laboratories and industry around the world to exchange, share and learn the most recent advancement on various aspects related to new nanotechnology, and energy-related materials and technologies.

The conference will focus on the topics including Advanced Biological Materials, Electronic MaterialsEnergy MaterialsMagnetic Materials, Nanomaterials; Application of Advanced Materials; Catalyst Material; Metals and Alloys; New Low-dimensional Quantum Material; Polymeric Materials; Surface Engineering and so on.

As a conference management platform by scientists and for scientists, OAHOST has been well known by its EMN Conference series and Collaborative Conferences (like 3CG and CC3DMR) since 2008 at a traditional villa in OrlandoFlorida. In the past 10 years, the Conference series have been held in 25 countries and have more than 8000 attendees. And the CCAM 2019 will come to Malta for the first time. 

Malta is a Southern European island country consisting of an archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea. It lies south of the island of Sicily, Italy. Malta is a popular tourist destination with its warm climate, numerous recreational areas, and architectural and historical monuments, including three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Hypogeum of Ħal-Saflieni, Valletta, and seven megalithic temples which are some of the oldest free-standing structures in the world. Malta is a member of the Schengen Agreement and the official languages are Maltese and English.

The meeting will be a few days of intense collaboration with great social occasions. It will be not only be a time to enjoy the company of fellow researchers in the field, but also a time to have fun with friends and family!

We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you on the CCAM 2019.
