The 13th International Conference on Bulk Metallic Glasses (with High Entropy Alloys) will be held December 9 - 13, 2019 at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) in Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, China. It is a continuation of the previous twelve events which were held in Singapore (September 2000), Keelung, Taiwan (March 2002), Beijing, China (October 2003), Gatlinburg, USA (May 2005), Hyogo, Japan (October 2006), Xi'an, China (May 2008), Pusan, Korea (November 2009), Hong Kong, China (May 2011), Xiamen, China (December 2012), Shanghai, China (June, 2014), and St Louis, USA (June, 2016), Seoul, Korea (May, 2018) respectively.

The objective of this conference is to provide an international forum to discuss recent progress and achievement in both fundamentals and applications of bulk metallic glasses, including chemically complex alloys, such as high entropy alloys. The conference will offer a highly interactive environment to stimulate technical discussions and exchanges, with the active participation of materials scientists, engineers, applied physicists and chemists from all over the world.

Welcome Message

Welcome to the 13th international conference on bulk metallic glasses including high entropy alloys (BMG XIII), which will be held in City University of Hong Kong, Kowloon, Hong Kong, from December 9 to 13 (Monday to Friday), 2019. This conference is organized jointly by Hong Kong Institute for Advanced Study (HKIAS) in City University of Hong Kong, and College of Mechatronics and Control Engineering in Shenzhen University.

Since the commencement almost two decades ago, BMG conferences have become important events for materials scientists and engineers. While BMG XIII is a continuation of the previous twelve conferences, its scope is expanded this time to cover not only bulk metallic glasses but also high entropy alloys in view of the recent advancement in these two fields. BMG XIII will include plenary and keynote presentations as well as technical oral and poster presentations, and will provide all attendees with great opportunities to demonstrate and exchange their recent research results.

Aside from attending the conference, we truly hope that you will also enjoy a wide varieties of social and cultural activities in Hong Kong, the city well known as the “Pearl of East Asia”, in her best season throughout the whole year.

We are sincerely looking forward to hosting you over BMG XIII in Hong Kong.
