The Institute is the forming initiator and the hinge of the Materials Research Society of Serbia (www.mrs-serbia.org.rs) that gathers the most eminent researchers and institutions in the field of materials science and engineering in the country and that organized, until now, 16 Conferences (in 1995, 1997, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007,2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014). The 17th YUCOMAT 2015 Conference will be held on August 31 – September 4, 2015 in Herceg Novi and its organization is well on the way. Since 2011, the Institute of Technical Sciences of SASA is formally not one of an organizer of this conference. However, its researchers are members of the Presidency of the Materials Research Society of Serbia and Organizational and Technical Committees of the Conference.
Proceedings from these Conferences were published by Trans Tech Publications, Zurich, Switzerland in the Mater. Sci. Forum edition (Vol.214, 282-283, 351, 413, 453-454, 494, 518 and 555), while the selected papers from the following four conferences were piblished in the journals Materials and Manufacturing Processes Vol.23, 6 (2008) 547-623 and Vol.24, 10&11 (2009) 1051-1228, Surface Engineering Vol.24, 4 (2008) 247-275, Acta Physica Polonica A Vol.115, 4 (2009) 759-846, Vol.117, 5 (2010) 727-883, and Vol. 120, 2 (2011); International Journal of Modern Physics B Vol.24, 6 & 7 (2010) 655-834.

Between 2002 and 2006, every December, the same organizers organized The Seminar of Young Researchers – Materials Science and Engineering, where young researchers from all over the country, who worked on their masters and doctoral theses, presented their papers on advanced materials and technologies. In 2007, the seminars developed first into national, and, in 2010, into international conferences. Meetings are traditionally held every year in December in Belgrade. The main goal of these meetings is to bring together young researchers (under 35 years of age) in this area of study and give them an opportunity to present their latest research results to their colleagues, mentors and project managers, as well as to meet each other. Selected papers from the conference are published in reputable national journals.
