MRD staff and students to attend AMRS2017

A group of about 20 staff, postdoctoral and postgraduate students from the Materials Research Department will attend the 9th African Materials Research Society (AMRS2017) conference to be held in Gaborone, Botswana from 11 to 15 December 2017. The expected attendance is approximately 500 delegates from across the world. At its heart the AMRS series of conferences allows the scientific and research communities to build knowledge, foster relationships and promote action for further understanding and collaborations in the broad fields associated with materials science and technology. The iThemba LABS delegates will be led by Prof Malik Maaza who is one of the keynote speakers at the conference. Amongst the delegates from iThemba LABS, 6 are postdoctoral fellows and 13 are postgraduate students whose submitted abstracts were accepted for oral contributions.
