Dr. David Mercier (FR)

Dr. David MERCIER completed his PhD in material science and engineering at the University of Grenoble (France) in 2012, specializing in the design of thin films tailored for applications in microelectronics. His journey then led him to enriching experiences through impactful postdoctoral research projects conducted in Germany (MPIE) and Belgium (CRM Group) between 2013 and 2018. During this period, his focus shifted to the realm of metallurgy, where he dedicated his efforts to multiscale modeling and the characterization of mechanical properties using cutting-edge techniques like nanoindentation. Notably, David played an active role in advancing nanoindentation data processing routines, showcasing his contributions on his GitHub page (https://github.com/DavidMercier). In 2018, David joined the UK company Granta Design, where he spearheaded collaborative initiatives with academics on materials education. After the acquisition of Granta Design by Ansys Inc., David transitioned into a pivotal role at the Office of the CTO as a Senior Collaborative R&D Project Manager. He has been at the forefront of leading European-funded projects, focusing on the development of innovative software solutions, particularly in the field of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) and Material Informatics.

Prof. Dr. Francisca G. Caballero (ES)

Prof. Ms. Francisca G. Caballero is Research Professor at the Spanish National Centre for Metals Research (CENIM-CSIC) since 2018. She obtained her Ph.D. in Physics from the Complutense University of Madrid in 1999 for studying solid-solid phase transformations in steels during reheating. From 1997 to 2000, she worked as a research associate at the University of Cambridge in UK on the design of carbide-free bainitic steels. She has held a visiting scientist position at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge-TN-USA since 2004. Additionally, between 2013 and 2014 she has been the Deputy Director of Science at CENIM, and Vice-Rector for Postgraduate Studies and Research at Menendez Pelayo International University between 2014 and 2018. From 2018 to 2021 she has worked for Elsevier Inc as Editor-in-Chief of the Encyclopedia of Materials: Metals and Alloys published in 2021. Prof. Caballero’s current research objective is to understand the relationship among the steel processing, its structure and its mechanical properties. In this regard, she investigates the transformation mechanisms, characterize the structure of the material from the micro to the nano-scale describing the physics and chemistry that govern the processes of transformation of steel and its properties under real conditions of use.

Welcome

Welcome to the 18th European Congress and Exhibition on Advanced Materials and Processes – FEMS EUROMAT 2025, which will be held in Granada (Spain), 14 – 18 September 2025.

It is a great pleasure and a privilege to announce the 18th European Congress and Exhibition on Advanced Materials and Processes – FEMS EUROMAT 2025, which will be held in Granada (Spain), 14 – 18 September 2025. The congress will be exclusively on-site and the venue will be the Congress Palace of Granada, a modern building, located within walking distance from the city center, with all the facilities and amenities needed for a successful meeting. The Organizing Committee and the Managing Committee are already working to design an attractive program focusing the last advances in Materials Science and Technology and to offer delegates the possibility to exchange ideas and strengthen collaborations and discussions among the different sectors of the materials community from research, academia and industry. Our goal is to create the best conditions for such parnertship and to promote the collaboration inside and outside Europe.

The Organizing Society is the Spanish Society of Materials, SOCIEMAT, which has a solid experience in the organization of events, including the National Congress on Materials in Spain every two years, and some European Conferences, such as FEMS EUROMAT 2013 and EUROCORR 2019.

We encourage the participation of students, researchers, professors, engineers, technicians, industrial partners and all persons interested in the advancement and development of materials and to share their knowledge and experience in order to achieve a successful event.

We are delighted to organize the FEMS EUROMAT 2025 Conference and we look forward to welcoming you in Granada, a relatively small-sized city with excellent infrastructure that makes it an ideal city to visit. Only in Granada conference delegates and visitors will enjoy Alhambra, Generalife and Albaicín, all declared Human Heritage sites by UNESCO.

On behalf of the Scientific Committee

Prof. Dr. Rodrigo Moreno
Chair of FEMS EUROMAT 2025
