Welcome from the conference Chairman

With the success of MatDes 2019 in Oxford and Virtual MatDes 2020-2022, 2023 in Turkey, 2024 in Dubai,  we are proud to announce the
2025 The 7th International Workshop on Materials and Design (MatDes 2025) will be held in Leiria, Portugal on March 11-13, 2025 and it will be run alongside ICKEM 2025 (www.ickem.org), which is sponsored by Polytechnic Institute of Leiria, Portugal.

Modern engineered materials play a central role in enabling technological designs that underpin, advance and revolutionise engineering practice. By cooperating with the Elsevier journal Materials & Design, MatDes seeks to present  applicable advances in the insight into structure and function, and provide useable and reproducible recipes for the synthesis, preparation, characterisation, modelling and exploitation of new metallic alloys, ceramics, polymers, coatings, composites and bio-materials systems.

Today's products and their constituent components and structures have to meet increasingly stringent requirements during operation. The economic and human costs of failure during service impose a great deal of responsibility on organisations and individuals who select and integrate materials in a final engineering design. A critical feature of successful product development is the judicious selection of the best materials based on informed awareness of the capabilities and opportunities afforded by all candidates, coupled with a design that takes full advantage of their properties. A further aim of MatDes is to promote a greater knowledge and understanding of the attributes and capabilities of all types of modern engineering materials in the context of engineering design.
