The Serbian Society for Innovative Materials in Extreme Conditions (SIM-EXTREME), together with the Center of Excellence “Center for Synthesis, Processing and Characterization of Materials for Application in Extreme Conditions” (CEXTREME LAB) of the Vinča Institute of Nuclear Sciences University of Belgrade, and Faculty of Mechanical Engineering University of Belgrade, is organizing the 2nd International Conference on Innovative Materials in Extreme Conditions (IMEC2024) on March 20-22, 2024 in Belgrade, Serbia.
     The scope of the IMEC2024 is to become the worldwide forum for discussion of experts and young researchers on the phenomena arising during the processing and/or exploitation of innovative materials. IMEC2024 conference will be focused on the current research in the field of material science, physics, chemistry, earth, and computation science. Experimental and computational investigations of materials obtained or operated under extreme conditions presented during the conference will highlight recent progress in the development of innovative materials at high pressures, under high magnetic and electric fields, over a wide range of temperatures, radiation conditions, corrosive environments, under extreme mechanical loads and non-equilibrium thermodynamic conditions. The interrelation between external effects, microstructural characteristics, and material properties will be considered on the experimental and theoretical level to obtain new or enhanced insights into the material behavior and their application.

      The IMEC2024 will be focused on an experimental and theoretical approach to the materials processed and/or applied in extreme conditions:

  • Ultra-high/low temperatures
  • Extreme pressures
  • High magnetic and electric fields
  • Radiation conditions
  • Corrosive environments
  • Extreme mechanical loads
  • Non-equilibrium thermodynamic conditions

Type of contributions:
      Participants at the IMEC2024 Conference can present their work in the form of the Plenary lectures (30 minutes), Invited lectures (20 minutes), Oral presentations (10 minutes), and Posters.
    Participants of the IMEC2024 conference are encouraged to submit full research papers. All submitted research papers will be evaluated and accepted papers will be published in the Journal of Innovative Materials in Extreme Conditions (JIMEC) (
