The 5th Colombian Conference of Engineering Physics (V CNIF) (www.ingenieriafisica.co) was hosted on 26-30 September 2016 at Medellin, Colombia organized by EAFIT University, National University of Colombia and Colombian Society of Engineering Physics.
This was the Fifth version of biennial meetings that began in 2010. The five-day scientific program of the V CNIF consisted of 14 Magisterial Conferences, and 8 Courses with the participation of undergraduate and graduate students, professors, researchers and entrepreneurs from Colombia, Canada, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, among others. The aim of the organizing committee is that the V CNIF would provide enough opportunities for direct scientific contacts, interesting discussions and interactive exchange of ideas between the participants, for future networks.
We have had about 350 participants, with more than 300 oral and poster presentations in Breaking Research of Advanced Materials Science and Technologies, Nanomaterials, Optical, Electronic and Magnetic Materials, Multifunctional Composites and Other Advanced Materials, Graphite and Graphene, Automation and Equipment Manufacturing Technologies, Advanced Materials for Engineering Applications, Energy, Biomaterials and Healthcare from experts, academicians, senior scientists, industry executives and project leaders from 10+ countries. It is intended to provide a platform for professionals around the world to exchange state-of-the-art research and development and identify research needs and opportunities in this emerging field. As in previous versions of this event, the participants were involved in the competition for the best poster.
Certificates and cash prizes were awarded to a number of participants for the best posters selected by the program committee.
On behalf of the organizing and scientific committees, we are glad to thank again all the people involved in this event, who made the VCNIF a great success.
Please make a note that the 6th International Conference of Engineering Physics (VI CNIF) 2 0 1 8 will take place from 24th to 28th September in the Caribbean region coast of Colombia, hosted by University of Atlántico and North University in the city of Barranquilla, Colombia.
