Late news :
Unfortunately, the covid-19 pandemics has caught up with us here in France, like in many other parts of the world.
We have therefore now to announce that SAM14 conference is canceled. Apologizing is probably unnecessary, but we are quite unhappy to have to make that decision and we understand this may be raising problems for some of you.

For more than 15 years, SAM conferences have been an international forum for exchanging on new methodologies, new concepts and new issues that connect materials, products, environment and society from different perspectives, ranging from social to engineering sciences.

As such, they have been a laboratory for thought and knowledge experiments, which have produced about 500 papers and introduced some of the best intuitions in these areas - which were then further developed elsewhere.
Issues and questions sitting at the heart of contemporary societal challenges and of expected paradigm shifts are also being covered as a kind of application lab.

Some special disciplines like Material Flow Analysis or Life Cycle Assessment, have been at the core of the meetings, as long as they were focusing on new directions and on innovative methodologies.
More scientific approaches, driven by social science, economics or materials science have also been presented. The focus was always on pluridisciplinarity and interdisciplinarity.
