The theme of this collection was “Innovation and Development of Surface Engineering Towards a Conservation-Minded Society”; a timely reminder of the obligation of advanced technologies to commit to energy & resource saving and environmental protection. Surface engineering must play a more-and-more important role in energy-saving, materials-saving and environmental protection in the coming years obey the 4R (Reuse, Reduce, Recycle, Remanufacture) rule and contribute to development of the world economy.

Materials science is a key field in science and technology, and is indispensable for providing the groundwork for the next technological generation. Ceramics, in particular, advanced rapidly during the 20th century. Although current society now faces numerous difficulties with regard to recycling, energy conservation, environmental pollution and safety/reliability issues, ceramics are sure to play an important role in overcoming them.

Composites have long held the center-stage of research and development in the materials community. The concept of combining metals, ceramics and polymers – having various types, shapes and properties - into a single material exhibiting properties that none of its individual components possess, has created endless scope for the imagination of scientists and engineers. It has ignited numerous fields of research and development, and revolutionized many applications. However, in spite of the many advantages of composite materials, there remain troubling underlying problems arising from the complexity of the systems, and these have hindered their full exploitation in everyday life. Such challenges to the composite materials community have been the driving force for holding composite materials conferences such as the celebrated Cross-Strait ones.
