Materials Science and Engineering 2018 (MSE)

Once again the time has arrived; from September 26th to 28th 2018, Europe´s Material Scientists and Engineers will meet at the Materials Science and Engineering Congress (MSE) at the Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany. A special highlight is this year´s guest country Argentina.

With more than 1,500 participants, the MSE is one of the largest English speaking congresses in the field of Material Science and Engineering, across Europe. Every two years, numerous questions of scientific, social, and economic nature, with regard to Materials Science and Engineering are discussed, in symposia and plenary lectures.

Hosted by the German Materials Society (DGM) in Darmstadt, Germany, the MSE has become the central platform for materials science and engineering experts to present their research to a large international community and to network across borders. In addition to different side events, the DGM Day with its Young Talent Forum is an integral part of the MSE.

The DGM is the largest technical-scientific society for Materials Science and Engineering in Europe. For almost 100 years it has combined the expertise of the specialist fields of science and the industry: representing the interests of its members from science and the industry - - and as guarantor for the systematic development of the fields of materials science and materials engineering.

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
