From July 12 to 16, 2018, “Chinese Materials Conference 2018” was grandly held in International Convention and Exhibition Center in Xiamen, Fujian Province. The conference was initiated and sponsored by the Chinese Materials Research Society (CMRS). Han Yafang, Director of the Academic Committee of Chinese Materials Research Society and Secretary General of the Chinese Materials Research Society, presided over the meeting, Wei Bingbo, Chairman of the Chinese Materials Research Society, gave a welcome speech and specially invited many other distinguished guests including Han Jingyi, Deputy Mayor of Xiamen Municipal Government, and member of the Party group, Professor Li Xiuzhen, President of International Union of Materials Research Societies (IUMRS), Prof. OsvaldoNovais Oliveira Jr, Chairman of Brazilian Materials Research Society, and Prof. R. ClaudiaElizabeth, Chairman of Mexican Materials Research Society to deliver speeches. The conference has a total of 34 parallel sessions and 1 material forum integrating the Mainland, Taiwan and Hong Kong. The essay covered energy materials, environmental materials, advanced structural materials, functional materials, and basic research of materials. The material education forum, new materials, new processes and materials testing technology exhibitions were held during the same period. More than 5,500 material professionals from the world's leading universities and research institutes gathered in Xiamen to discuss the latest developments in materials technology and industrial development.
The "Advanced Microelectronics and Optoelectronic Materials Parallel Session" sponsored by the Integrated Circuit Materials & Components Industry Technology Innovative Alliance, and jointly supported by Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Beijing Multidimensional Electronic Materials Technology Development and Promotion Center was held during the same period. Academician Wang Xi, Director of Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, served as Chairman of the "Advanced Microelectronics and Optoelectronic Materials Parallel Session", and Wang Zhengping, Academician of Chinese University of Hong Kong served as Honorary Chairman of the parallel session, Yang Deren, Academician of Zhejiang University, Dr. Lin Qinghuang of IBM and Zhao Chao, Researcher of Institute of Microelectronics of Chinese Academy of Sciences jointly served as the Vice Chairman of the parallel session. Entrusted by Academician Wang Xi, Researcher Zhao Chao, on behalf of Academician Wang Xi, gave an opening speech at the parallel session. The "Advanced Microelectronics and Optoelectronic Materials Parallel Session" has 3 keynote speeches, 11 invited reports, 24 oral reports, and 15 wall newspapers. The reports covered various fields in the field of microelectronics and optoelectronic materials, including new storage materials PCRAM, such as RRAM and STT-MRAM, substrate materials such as Ge, Si, SOI, GOI and compound semiconductors, new display materials and other materials used in the manufacture of integrated circuits and optoelectronic devices, advanced packaging materials, carbon-based functional materials such as carbon nanotube and graphene, new two-dimensional materials such as CN3, material detection techniques and methods, material design theory and computational simulation, etc.
