Call for papers

Call For Papers/Posters is now closed

Please note that the acceptance/rejection of abstracts and session organisation will be announced on 10 February 2020.

The Local Organising Committee would like to cordially invite paper and poster submissions for the 10th BUMA conference Bangkok 2020. The committee has proposed eight initial sessions but also encourage the participants to propose new sessions relevant to the main theme "diversity and connection of metallurgy across Asia" (Theme and Sessions).

Both oral presentation and posters are welcome. The abstracts should be between 200 – 350 words in MS Word (.doc or .docx) (Template). As a first author, you can submit only one abstract. The abstract should state briefly the purpose, evidence, methods, results, and short interpretations. This necessary information is to help the selection of the papers for oral or poster presentation. It is also to provide audiences a brief overview of each work. All proposals should be in English. All papers will first be proposed and reviewed by the convernors and committee. The abstracts of all accepted papers will be published in an abstract booklet in digital format which will be distributed to participants.

Each oral presentation (except keynote presentations) will be given 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for discussion. All papers selected for the oral presentation will be presented in the auditorium (no parallel sessions).

Posters must be prepared in English in size A0 portrait. A dedicated session for poster will also be given to promote an interaction between the researchers.

Please send your abstract to Please also kindly state a suitable session for your paper.
