International Conference on Materials IMAT 11 May 2016
The 5th International Conference on Materials Engineering and Metallurgy will be held on 8-9 November 2016 at Shiraz University. This conference will be the joint effort of Metallurgical Engineering Society of Iran, Iranian Foundry Society and Shiraz University. The Purpose of this conference is to organize a scientific meeting for scientists, engineers and researchers in the field of materials science and engineering and metallurgy from universities, industries and other organizations to present their up to date scientific and technological ideas and investigations.
According to the organizer:
The indigenous knowledge which is the result of datum and experience collection of local folks and societies in successive generations is a valuable body that should be considered for getting to sustainable development.
Recently the perpetual cooperation of indigenous knowledge and modern academic knowledge has been considered by researchers, managers and plan makers of countries, for comprehensive advancement of human beings, as well as food supply, welfare and security.
Nowadays, ecosystem disruption and extinction of the important biological species is one of the main problems of the world. Unfortunately human being is the mail agent of such destruction, whereas his life is completely dependent on this unique biosphere.
To save the earth from such a vast ruin which itself guarantees human’s survive, we’d better make use of academic modern sciences and indigenous knowledge.
The aims of convening international conference on the traditional knowledge for conservation of biodiversity are to attract worldwide attention to such a phenomenon, to collect indigenous data and sciences from different parts of the world, and to study its influence on conservation of biodiversity. These indigenous sciences in cases have protected the important and valuable species, and in some other cases have led to their extinction.
