Collaborative Conference on 3D and Materials Research (CC3DMR) 2015  

With the success of the past conferences including the Collaborative Conference on 3D & Materials Research (3DMR) 2011 held in Jeju island, Korea, 2012 held in Seoul, Korea, 2013 in Jeju island, Korea, and 2014 in Incheon/Seoul, Korea, CC3DMR 2015 will continue providing interdisciplinary forum for the open communication in understanding physical, chemical, and biological materials of any compositions and morphologies, including carbon nanotubes, graphene, nanoparticles, nanowires, and quantum dots. Materials research, the sciences and technologies for the generation, processing, and fabrication of materials, is where disciplines merge and where they diverge into a remarkable range of applications from electronics to health care that touch, or will soon touch, the lives of millions. This collaborative conference series is established to enable technological developments in the various fields of materials and to further the goal of unifying materials research in engineering, physics, biology, materials science, as well as chemistry and neuroscience with a focus on 3 dimension (3D). CC3DMR 2015, as the fifth conference in this series, offers researchers the opportunity to discuss and exchange information with the frontiers in their fields and network with scientists from various other fields for potential interdisciplinary collaborations. CC3DMR 2015 will take place from 15th to 19th June, 2015 in BEXCO, Busan, South Korea.

    Aims and Scope


    3D Research (3DR) is the first journal devoted to materials and technologies for the generation, processing, and display of information in three dimensions. The journal spans disciplines and applications areas, emphasizing research that seeks to enable technological developments in the field of 3D and to further the goal of unifying 3D research in engineering, physics, materials science, chemistry, as well as psychology and neuroscience.

    3DR provides an international forum for the rapid publication and dissemination of peer-reviewed research. Original research papers are published as 3DR Express. 3DR Commentaries are invited personal viewpoints and perspectives addressing topics of general interest to the 3D community and highlighting new areas of science. 3DR Commentaries are typically commissioned by the Editorial Board but unsolicited submissions are also welcome. 3DR Review is a format that focuses on the summarization of currently well-established theoretical and experimental results. 3DR Reviews are commissioned solely by the Editorial Board.

    Key features:

    • First journal to focus on the burgeoning field of 3D information science and technology
