IOM3 Events Calendar

IOM3 organises a range of events that are ideal opportunities for networking as well as finding out the latest state of the art, updating your technical knowledge, or broadening your materials interests.  

Most of our events offer discounts for IOM3 members, but please note that you will only see member tickets if you are logged in and have no outstanding fees. Member-only events are shown with a padlock by the title.

Find events specific to your interests using our filters for topics, materials, sectors and region. Most of our events are currently online and so are indicated as 'Worldwide'.


Programmes of events and evening lectures are also organised by our Affiliated Local Societies. Please visit their pages to find out what your local organisation has on offer. Find my local society
