It is a great pleasure and honour, as Conference Chairs and representatives of the hosting university to invite colleagues from academia and business, as well as young researchers and students from all parts of the world to attend the Materials Oceania 2021 conference. The conference, scheduled from October 11-14, 2021 is organized by Prism Scientific Services in collaboration with The University of Queensland.
The conference will underpin the need and importance of collaboration and cooperation by individuals from a wide range of professional backgrounds. Materials Oceania will bring together a multidisciplinary group of scientists and engineers from all over the world to present latest findings and to exchange their ideas. This in turn paves the way for further discoveries, which most often happen where disciplines and specialists meet and congregate. In fact the development of materials was, is and will be fundamental for all technological applications, and in the entire field of applied science targeting the improvement of quality of life for humanity. At the end of the conference, we hope that attendees will feel they have generated the most up-to-date information available.
We hope that you will join us for a symphony of outstanding science, and to also take a little extra time to enjoy the spectacular and unique beauty of Brisbane City.

How To Participate:
A majority of the scientific or engineering problems which are being faced currently are due to limitations in the availability of materials, and because of a lack of basic knowledge of how the existing materials can be utilised. This lead all experts within the fields of metallurgy, ceramics, solid-state physics, and chemistry to think big about the problem, and thus the study of materials science was made an important priority which can surely pave the way clear for the technology to develop.
This materials science conference is designed in such a way that the theme and topics of the conference will address current issues and latest findings by examining all possible ways that speak about materials science.
Materials Oceania 2021 will be a well maintained scientific manifesto, giving utmost priority for the development of research by creating a wide space for the knowledge to be transplanted.
Our main aim is to produce a quality conference with world class hospitality and provide the best line-up of world renowned speakers from the Science and Engineering academia and industry areas. Not only featuring scientific sessions, Materials Oceania 2021 will also be a platform to hold International collaborations, we have also designed the scientific sessions and discussions in such a way that all attendees will be able to acquire things at the finest.
Eliminating gender bias in universities requires immediate, overarching reform and decisive action by University administrators, professional societies, government agencies and congress. Materials Oceania is committed to promoting gender equality in regional, national, and global levels and mainstreams a gender perspective.
We recognise that the representation of women participating at international level conferences is lacking. Thus, the vital contributions and revelations made by women in materials science regularly remains under-perceived. Materials Oceania organising committee will endeavour to build a conference program that embraces different perspectives based on gender diversity, as well as cultural diversity, to ensure our delegates have the greatest opportunity for engagement, collaboration and participation.
A special session has been planned during the Materials Science conference to pay tribute to the accomplishments of women in the materials science field, and seek to inspire current early stageresearchers to become innovators in the field. Opportunities will be available to discuss issues faced by women in the materials science and engineering professions, as well as to provide girls and women with inspiring role models who could lead them to pursue careers in materials science.
We encourage all participants of Materials Oceania to take part in this special session and support us in promoting gender equality.
