Dear Colleagues

International Meeting on Applied Physics (APHYS-2003)
Badajoz (Spain)
October 14-18th 2003

Pre-conference Workshop: International Interdisciplinar Workshop on Bioengineered Non-crystalline Solids

As you probably already know, Materials Science and Engineering will be one of the most important topics to be covered in this International and truly interdisciplinar Conference. Within this topic, a International Workshop on Non-crystalline solids for Biomedical Applications, will be held as pre-conference event. You can find all the information about the Workshop and the rest of the Conference at the above address. Some of the topics to be covered will be:

Novel Biomedical Materials Based on Glasses
Thin Films and Surfaces for Bioactivity and Biomedical Applications
Bioactive Glass Composites for Tissue Engineering
Thin film coating of bioactive glass-ceramics onto metal and ceramic substrates using sol-gel chemistry
Non-crystalline or semicristalline polymers
Development of new glasses and glass fibers
Processing and manufacture of ceramics, glass and related materials
Sintering and Plasma Spray Deposition of Bioactive Glass-Matrix Composites for Biomedical Applications
Glass ceramics for biomedical applications
Glass ceramics with special mechanical properties
Glass ceramics for joining possessing adjusted thermal expansion and good mechanical properties, also at high temperatures
Studies on bio-glass and bio-glass-ceramic coatings on metals and ceramics (interfaces)
Studies on composites for biomedical applications
Bioactive glass-ceramics dental and orthopaedic cements and composite biomaterials
Interaction between Ceramics and Tissue, Ceramics for Bone and Joint Replacement and Repair, Dental Ceramics, Investment Materials, Hydroxyapatite, Sol Gel Processing of Ceramics and Glass
Bioactive glass-ceramic implants
Relaxation behaviour of polymer, glass and glass fibers
Relation between the structure and the properties of glasses and glass fibers
Optimization of fiber drawing process

Reviewers are wanted for the this International Workshop to be held within the framework of the forthcoming APHYS-2003 Conference. If you want to
participate in the reviewing of papers, please contact the Conference Secretariat at secretariat@formatex.org with your personal data, field(s) of
expertise and a list of publications. The Proceedings will be published as a special issue of the Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids and European Cells and Materials. The official list of reviewers of the Conference will be also included in the Proceedings volume.
