Proceedings of the 2016 International Conference on Advanced Materials Science and Environmental Engineering

The 2016 International Conference on Advanced Material Science and Environmental Engineering (AMSEE2016), with generous support from individuals and institutions, will be held in Chiang Mai, Thailand, from June 26 to 27, 2016, mainly focusing on materials science and environmental engineering.

Since 1960s, advanced material science has become an emerging scientific domain. It is closely related to many other fields, such as metallurgy, solid state physics, and chemistry. Thus, it is currently recognized as an intersection of a variety of fields and will play an increasingly important role in the future. As for the environmental engineering, it is widely known that environmental problems are becoming increasingly serious with the accelerating development of modern industry. And people’s consciousness of sustainable development has created a solid foundation for the advancement of environmental engineering. As a result, AMSEE 2016, organized by the Science and Engineering Research Center (SERC), Hong Kong, provides a platform for those who make strenuous efforts to facilitate the development of advanced material science and environmental engineering.

Before the deadline, we have received approximately 249 papers from prominent scholars and scientists from different regions. These papers have gone through a strict reviewing process. All the submissions were double blind reviewed; both the reviewers and the authors remained anonymous. Firstly, all the submissions were classified into several chapters in accordance with the topics. Then the chairs assigned the submissions to reviewers according to their research interests. Each submission was examined by two independent international reviewers. Only papers approved by both reviewers were accepted for publication. If two reviewers held different opinions, the paper should be transferred to the third reviewer (usually a new reviewer) assigned by the chairs. The final result ought to be decided by the third party. Ultimately, 77 submissions of innovation and practicability were accepted for publication, which means around 30.92 percent papers have been accepted. In this book these papers are divided under 5 chapters:

Chapter 1: Materials Science and Materials Processing Technology
Chapter 2: Environmental Science and Energy Engineering
Chapter 3: Applied Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering
Chapter 4: Measurement, Test and Industrial Application
Chapter 5: Communications and Signal Processing

In this conference latest researches and excellent oral presentations will be presented by researchers for exchange of information and this will contribute not only to their future studies but also to the advanced material science as well as the environmental engineering field.

In the whole preparing process, we have been supported by many people and institutions. Here, we would like to show our sincere appreciation to all the participants and organizations for their contribution to AMSEE 2016: International Scientific Committees, to Atlantis Press and to all the committee members for their hard work.

It is such a privilege for us to witness this great conference. And we truly hope that there will be more cooperation and communication with these outstanding people. Finally, we wish that this conference will be a success and our participants can all benefit from it and we are looking forward to the next great conference.
