On behalf of ICHEM 2018 organizing committee, we are privileged and delighted to welcome you to the 2nd International Conference on High-Entropy Materials (ICHEM 2018) to be held at Ramada Plaza Hotel in Jeju Island, South Korea from December 9th -12th, 2018.

The International Conference on High-Entropy Materials (ICHEM) has emerged from the exciting and vibrant field of High-Entropy Materials (HEMs) in materials science community and has now stabilized to trigger the development of advanced HEMs. The HEMs are of great interest to the material science community from both the scientific and technological points of view because of its wide variety of compositions with unprecedented properties and provides great opportunities for a wide range of structural and functional applications.

The well-elaborated “ICHEM 2018” will be hosted by the Center for High-Entropy Alloys - Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), South Korea. With access to priceless scientific knowledge, industrially valuable information, and wonderful Korean scenery and the culture of Jeju Island, all the participants will have a great time in the 2nd ICHEM in the picturesque city of Jeju, South Korea.

The ICHEM 2018 provides a wonderful opportunity to the world-class scientists, industrial researchers, and students in the field of metallic alloys to get together and share their valuable research results. In this regard, plenary sessions, invited and contributed talks are very noteworthy. The program would cover a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, Material and Process Development, High-temperature and Radiation-resistant Materials, Physical Metallurgy and phase transformations, Mechanical Properties, Physical-Chemical-Functional Properties, Structure and Characterization, Simulations and Modeling, and High-entropy Ceramic, Coatings & Composites, Breaking Composition Boundary. The idea of the conference is for the scientists, scholars, engineers and students from universities, research institutes, and industries all around the world to present ongoing research activities. This allows for the free exchange of ideas and challenges among the conference participants and encourages future collaboration between members of these groups. The conference will also foster cooperation among organizations and researchers involved in the merging fields and will provide in-depth technical presentations with abundant opportunities for individual discussions with the presenters. You can also enjoy the conference excursion in glorious Jeju islands on the last day of conference (Dec.12th)

We are looking forward to your active participation in the well-elaborated ICHEM 2018 in dynamic Korea with the amazing opportunity to meet and establish collaborations with a big step-up. We believe the catch-phrase of this meeting will offer a platform for networking, collaboration, and information exchange in the community, which will stimulate the focus, necessity, and encouragement of collaborations between the scientific and industrial communities. And, We hope the global industrial scientists and engineers will encounter many advancement and challenges for the future technology of high-entropy materials through ICHEM 2018.

Yours sincerely,
