30 August–2 September 2021 International Conference on Structural Integrity (ICSI202)

Funchal, Madeira, Portugal

The International Symposium on In Situ Full-Field Deformation Measurements on Advanced Manufacturing Processes will be held at the 4th International Conference of Structural Integrity (ICSI21), which will take place on Madeira Island, Portugal, on 30 August–2 September 2021.

The Symposium provides the research opportunity to survey recent developments on the topic of in situ monitoring by full-field optical techniques during advanced manufacturing processes as additive manufacturing variants.

In the Digital Era, novel technologies have been germinating. This symposium aims at highlighting research synergies among three major technologies: full-field optical techniques, additive manufacturing, and advanced materials.

In the discipline of photomechanics, full-field optical techniques have been developed, including digital image correlation. The data provided by these techniques is full-field and contact-free. The access of deformation measurements across a whole region of interest have been gradually presenting new research interests and perspectives in the field of experimental and computational mechanics.

This Era has been witnessing the advance of technologies in the digitalisation of industry. Among them is additive manufacturing. This process has already achieved a high impact into industry and modern society. A consistent evolution of this novel manufacturing tool is the synthesis of materials and parts with specific-oriented structure and functionality. This approach claims an unprecedented potential in which materials can evolve into the bio-inspired paradigm of heterogeneity and gradient mechanical properties.

The Symposium will be sponsored by the Materials journal (ISSN 1996-1944; CODEN: MATEG9), which is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal of materials science and engineering published online by MDPI. Papers submitted to this Symposium can be proposed to be published in the Special Issue In Situ Full-Field Deformation Measurements on Advanced Manufacturing Processes. This Special Issue belongs to the section Manufacturing Processes and Systems. All articles published in Materials are published in full open-access. In order to provide free access to readers, and to cover the costs of peer review, copyediting, typesetting, long-term archiving, and journal management, an article processing charge (APC) of 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs) applies to papers accepted after peer review. A discount of 20% has been agreed with the journal regarding selected papers presented to this Symposium. Moreover, a best paper award corresponding to 50% discount voucher will be sponsored.

2–3 December 2021 Raw Materials & Recycling International Meeting

Bergamo, Italy


The environmental and economical sustainability of the metallurgical industry depends on the possibility to recover and recycle the metal products after their use. On the other hand, a new challenge is a zero-waste metallurgical process. Such an approach has to be faced from perspective involving commercial, economic and technical issues. Although recycling is an intrinsic feature of all the metallurgical processes, an efficient circular approach needs to take into account a correct selection and cleaning of the metallic and glassy-ceramic materials in order to allow their use in the process avoiding or limiting the exploitation and the consumption of the natural resources.

Such a view imposes a multidisciplinary approach where the application of complex mechanical system, innovative chemical plants, electromagnetic devices, biotechnological techniques and managing algorithm even ruled by artificial intelligence (i.e. for scrap selection, removal of the organic burden, extraction of valuable chemical elements etc.) have to be applied.

An efficient action inspired to the circular economy has to take into account a comprehensive vision where the recycling is associated to an efficient material and energy exploitation that implies an overall decrease of the polluting elements and green-house gases.


Prospective authors wishing to present are invited to submit a tentative title and an abstract of about 400 words (in English) to the Organising Secretariat by July 9, 2021. The abstract should provide sufficient information for a fair assessment.

Two ways to submit papers will be available:

The BOSS-conference is a unique international symposium as it combines lectures delivered by established organic chemists as well as younger rising stars with two prestigious events: a lecture delivered by the recipient of the “Janssen Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis”, and the “Tetrahedron Chair”: a one-day course on a specific topic in organic synthesis.

The BOSS will cover a broad range of timely topics of modern organic synthesis, including asymmetric synthesis, chemical biology, electrosynthesis, medicinal chemistry, organocatalysis, organometallic chemistry and catalysis, photocatalysis, reaction mechanisms, reactive intermediates, supramolecular chemistry, sustainable chemistry, total synthesis… and many more!

The BOSS XVII Symposium Programme will include:

  • a one-day course by the recipient of the Tetrahedron Chair
  • a lecture delivered by the recipient of the Janssen Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis
  • a series of 17 plenary lectures with ample time for discussion
  • poster sessions
  • an exhibition of scientific instruments, books and chemicals
  • social activities
