Sponsors invitation

We are pleased to invite you to become sponsor of the IV Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) Workshop. The venue of the conference is the beautiful city of Cagliari in Sardinia (Italy) , and the dates are May 23rd - 25th, 2018.

After Avignon 2008, Capbreton 2011 and Toulouse 2014, the workshop will be held for the first time outside France. It will be dedicated to Professor Zuhair A. Munir who has deeply contributed to the worldwide diffusion of the SPS technology and will be attending the workshop with the opening lecture.

Because of the importance of this workshop and the charm of the host town, we hopefully expect more than 150 participants from academic institutions and SPS practitioners worldwide. The SPS workshop in Italy will be one of the major events in 2018 for the sintering community and the materials science and engineering field in general, as well as a top opportunity to convene for researchers, professionals and students from all over the world. It will provide therefore a unique chance for companies to establish fruitful scientific and commercial new relationships.

All the sponsors will be widely publicized during the workshop, in the website and programme. Boots for industrial exhibitors will be also available at the conference site.
