SCiMAN2016 is the eleventh annual symposium organized by the Centro de Investigación en Ciencia e Ingeniería de Materiales, CICIMA (Materials Science and Engineering Research Center). It represents an effort to provide to the local and regional scientific and engineering community a place to share results obtained from the research activity in materials science and engineering as well as nanotechnology. Most of the presenters are scientists, engineers, and students belonging to local and international universities or laboratories.

The topics usually covered by past symposia were, among others, hot topics like soft condensed matter, biomaterials, composites, nanostructured semiconductors, polymers, and graphene. Apart from the local public universities (Universidad de Costa Rica, Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica, Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica), lecturers from other international institutions have already presented. Some important ones are:

  • Centro Atómico Bariloche e Instituto Balseiro (Bariloche, Argentina)
  • Chalmers Institute of Technology (Gothenburg, Sweden)
  • Freie Universität (Berlin, Germany)
  • Institut de Ciència de Materials (Barcelona, Spain)
  • Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (Seoul, South Korea)
  • Laboratório Nacional de Luz Síncrotron (LNLS-Campinhas, Brazil)
  • Leibniz-Institut für Festkörper- und Werkstoffforschung (Dresden, Germany)
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, USA)
  • Sapienza-Università di Roma (Rome, Italy)
  • Technischen Universität Berlin (Germany)
  • Uppsala Universitet (Sweden)
  • Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM-Madrid, Spain)
  • Universidad de Alicante (Spain)
  • Universidad Nacional de la Plata (UNLP-La Plata, Argentina)
  • Universiteit Leiden (The Netherlands)
  • University of Cambridge (United Kingdom)
  • Intel Corporation

The scope of the symposia is to offer lecture-oriented block sessions with interstitial breaks to provide refreshments. Each session has a chairperson charged to introduce the lectures, keep track of lectures timing (usually 20 to 45 minutes), ask for questions from the audience and in general maintain an appropriate flow of a session. A poster session is also organized.

This symposium has been endorsed in the past by the Materials Research Society (MRS) and the American Vacuum Society (AVS) .
