    These local chapter meetings are also an ideal setting for students and early career researchers and professionals to present their research - whether it is a first-time description of new work, looking for valuable feedback and interest - or a polished presentation on a completed study, where the presenter is eager to share their results with established members of the scientific community. Established professionals are also welcome to submit presentations, which could include recent studies, or provide overviews of topics of general scientific interest to the Society and chapter members.

    Student participation is strongly encouraged. Registration for the meeting is free. Pizza, soda, and water will be provided at about 6:00 pm. At the end of the meeting, awards will be given for both the best talk and best poster presentation. The award winners will be given a certificate from the AVS and also publicized in the AVS Newsletter.

    It is our great pleasure to announce the 2017 Spring Meeting of the European Materials Research Society
    (E-MRS) to be held in the extended and modernized Convention Centre of the beautiful city of Strasbourg
    (“Palais de la Musique et des Congrès”).
     
    In line with the previous conferences, it is expected that this event will be the largest in Europe in the field of
    Materials Science and Technology. Indeed, the E-MRS Spring Meeting is a major conference with over 2500
    attendees coming from all over the world every year.
     
    The 2017 Spring Meeting will consist of 26 parallel symposia with invited speakers, oral and poster presentations,
    as well as a plenary session. In parallel with the technical sessions, approximately 80 international
    exhibitors will display a large variety of equipment, instrumentation, products, software, publications and
    services from May 23 to 25 at the Strasbourg Convention Centre.
     
    The high quality scientific program will address different topics covering the fields of Energy, Biomaterials,
    Semiconductors, Nanomaterials and Functional Materials. The latest scientific results will be presented and
    authors are invited to submit papers in the selected journals that fit the scope of each symposium. It is worth
    noting that the papers are peer-reviewed at a high scientific level, according to a process and timetable that
    are at the discretion of the symposia organizers.
     
    The focus of the scientific program will be both on fundamental investigations and technological applications,
    providing an international forum for discussing recent advances related to the different aspects to be considered
    to promote innovation.
     
    This very exciting program is complemented by the plenary session on Wednesday afternoon. Two outstanding
    speakers, Prof. Zhenan Bao, of Stanford University, USA, and Prof. Patrice Simon of Université Paul
    Sabatier, Toulouse, France, will address the “hot” topics “Synthesis and applications of functional organic
    and polymer materials” and “Electrochemical energy storage – supercapacitors”, respectively.
     
    This central session will continue with the EU-40 Materials Prize, a prestigious award presented to researchers
    under 40 that demonstrate exceptional promise for leadership and have made outstanding and innovative
    contributions to Materials Research in Europe. Everyone who complies with such a profile is encouraged
    to apply by January 31, 2017. The presentation of Graduate Students Awards, delivered for each one of the
    26 symposia, will conclude the plenary session. We encourage these junior researchers to apply to these
    awards.

    Event: FEBS Workshop – Biological Surfaces and Interfaces: Interface Dynamics
    Location Hotel Eden Roc,Sant Feliu de Guixols, Catalonia, SPAIN
    Contact: Manuel Salmerón-Sánchez, e-mail: Manuel.Salmeron-Sanchez@glasgow.ac.uk
    Web: https://mimeresearch.com/biointerfaces2017/

    This conference covers research into the dynamics of biological interfaces. The goal of the meeting is to bring together researchers from diverse disciplines who are actively working on this topic and to engage young scientists at the doctoral and postdoctoral level, nucleating new ideas and new directions.
     
    The concept of biological interfaces is at the cornerstone of research areas as diverse as implant design and control of stem cell differentiation, biocatalysis, nanomedicine, cancer, drug delivery and systems biology. In applications that range from precision medicine to biotechnology and bioengineering, the future is behind systems that interact with the biological environment in a specific manner at the molecular and cellular level, engaging well-defined signalling pathways and responses. In view of the complexity and dynamic nature of biological processes, artificial interfaces themselves have to become dynamic and highly adaptative to external stimuli.

    Event: The 14th International Symposium on Sputtering and Plasma Processes (ISSP 2017)
    Location Kanazawa Institute of Technology, Nonoichi, Japan
    Contact: Yasusei Yamada; e-mail: yasusei-yamada@aist.go.jp
    Web: http://issp2017.jp

    International Symposium on Sputtering and Plasma Processes (ISSP) was established in 1991. The main subject of the 1st symposium was “Reactive Sputtering”. It was the time that some new approaches to improve deposition rate and stability of the reactive sputtering process were started to be addressed. Since then, the symposium has been held biennially. At each symposium, the current topics and trends concerning sputtering and plasma processes have become the main focus and such topics have been discussed intensively.
     
    This symposium has two characteristics. One is that the program committee is formed mainly by members from related industries. Hence, the general tendency of papers presented in the symposium is practical use of the sputtering technology and industrial relevancy. The other is that all the oral speakers including invited ones are requested to present their papers also at the poster session of the day of the oral presentation, giving unique opportunities for attendees to discuss details of the oral presentations with speakers.
     
    We hope that every engineer and researcher in the world who is interested in sputtering and plasma processes attends this exciting symposium. We look forward to seeing you in Kanazawa.
