Description: Functional materials have held a very prominent position in the various high-tech areas. Such materials are not being classified on the basis of their origin, nature of creating or processing techniques but are classified on the basis of the functions they can perform. The International Conference on Functional Materials and Metallurgy (ICFMM 2016, August 3-5, 2016, Shanghai, China) was devoted to the study of the properties and methods of application the modern functional materials. We hope the volume will offer the readers a good opportunity to access the state-of-the art developments and future directions of researches on functional materials and metallurgy.

Description: The 22nd International Biohydrometallurgy Symposium (24 - 27 September, 2017, Freiberg, Germany) was the global forum for experts from academia and industry active in the fields of biomining, bioleaching and bioremediation. These technologies have a high potential to establish environmentally favourable processes for the recovery of primary and secondary precious and base metal resources as well as the remediation of exploited mining sites.

Description: The 14th S2P International Conference (October 23 – 27, 2016, Salt Lake City, USA) was dedicated to the science and processing technologies of the semi-solid metal alloys and composites. Since the discovery of the specific flow behavior of metals in semi-solid state during the early seventies, this fascinating technology has experienced a dynamic and turbulent development history which has led to a whole family of new production processes, new equipments and industrial applications for goals of full use of the technical and economic potential of the flow behaviour, improved materials and process modelling as well as control of processes. All S2P International Conferences have contributed to achieve this goal by providing a forum for scientists to share the common knowledge and to develop a common sense on fundamental topics and industrial requirements.
