Biomaterials are the non-drug substances which are designed to interact with the biological system either as a  part of medical device or to  replace or repair any damaged organs or tissues. Biomaterials can be derived either naturally or synthetically.Tissue engineering has the potential to achieve this by combining materials design and engineering with cell therapy. Biomaterials can provide physical supports for engineered tissues and powerful topographical and chemical cues to guide cells. Biomaterials engineering involves synthesis, processing, and characterisation of novel materials, including polymers, proteins, glasses, cements, textile composites and hybrids. Introducing nanoscale cues such as Nano topography or nanoparticles as therapeutic agents provide an exciting approach to modulate cell behaviour. In order to probe the cell-material interface.

Ceramics cover a very wide range of materials from structural materials like concrete to technical ceramics like PZT – a piezoelectric.  Usually they are defined as solids with a mixture of metallic or semi-metallic and non-metallic elements (often, although not always, oxygen), that are quite hard, non-conducting and corrosion-resistant. Ceramic materials  inorganic polymers can be made under low energy conditions such as ambient temperatures and pressures. These materials include aluminosilicates or Novel Applications and Construction Materials, Chemically Bonded Ceramics.

Materials processing& Manufacturing  is defined as the series of steps or “unit operations” used in the manufacture of raw-materials into finished goods.  The operations involve a succession of industrial processes with various mechanical or chemical procedures. Chemical engineering methods are applied in order to modify the cellular structure or molecular properties of materials on a microscopic level.  Thermal processes involving heat transfer  the addition or reduction of heat are used to alter a range of materials, especially metals.  Mechanical operations employ the use of specialized equipment in the transformation of solid matter.  While many characterization techniques have been practiced for centuries, such as basic optical microscopy, new techniques and methodologies are constantly emerging. In particular the advent of the electron microscope and Secondary ion mass spectrometry

As advanced energy systems with enhanced conversion efficiencies, improved storage capacities, and better reliabilities are being developed to meet the global energy needs of the world’s growing population, these aspects have emerged key factors that affect the performance of energy materials. It is anticipated that this symposium will provide an outstanding opportunity for participants to exchange ideas and promote discussions on recent advances in the field of energy storage – materials and devices, their electrochemistry as well as mechanics in various applications. We also have extensive research around next-generation battery technology. Energy storage is the capture of energy produced at one time for use at a later time. A device that stores energy is sometimes called an accumulator. Energy comes in multiple forms including radiation, chemical, gravitational potential, electrical potential, electricity, elevated temperature, latent heat and kinetic. Energy other form of Bioenergy storage involves converting energy from forms that are difficult to store to more conveniently or economically storable forms. Bulk energy storage is dominated by pumped hydro, which accounts for 99% of global energy storage.

Material science plays a important role in metallurgy too. Powder metallurgy is a term covering a wide range of ways in which materials or components are made from metal powders. They can avoid, or greatly reduce, the need to use metal removal processes and can reduce the costs. Pyro metallurgy includes thermal treatment of minerals and metallurgical ores and concentrates to bring about physical and chemical transformations in the materials to enable recovery of valuable metals. A complete knowledge of metallurgy can help us to extract the metal in a more feasible way and can used to a wider range. Global Metallurgy market will develop at a modest 5.4% CAGR from 2014 to 2020.

Optical and Electronic smart materials are the materials that associate with electricity. It incorporates the design, study and manufacture of smart materials that convert electrical signals into photon signals and photons signals to electrical signals. Any device that operates as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical is considered an optoelectronic device. Optoelectronics is built up on the quantum mechanical effects of light on electronic materials, sometimes in the presence of electric fields, especially semiconductors. New electronic and photonic nanomaterials assure dramatic breakthroughs in communications, computing devices and solid-state lighting.
