News regarding FMS2022 will be updated soon


It is our great pleasure to announce that the 6th International Symposium on Frontiers in Materials Science (FMS 2022) will be held in Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam, from 21st to 23rd November 2022.

This event, which continues on a delayed FMS 2021 (Hsin-chu, Taiwan, 2021) due to Covid-19, covers a broad range of research activities in all areas of modern materials science.

Phu Quoc is an isolated island of Vietnam located in the most southern area of the East-Sea. It is a favourite and very attractive location for tourism worldwide and is currently open for foreigners without quarantine. It is likely that Phu Quoc is going to be fully available soon. Even if the Covid-19 situation in Vietnam worsens it would stay opened for travellers who have two shots of common vaccines such as Moderna, Astra-Zeneca or Pfizer.

However, to be safe, FMS 2022 will be organized as a hybrid symposium with online and offline meetings in parallel. The online meeting will be available freely to all registered participants.

Phu Quoc is usually in a peak tourism season in November so please register for your participation as soon as possible so we know how many meeting rooms and equipment should be rent. The temperature in November in Phu Quoc is above 30 degree Celcius.
