The Fourth International Conference on Matter and Radiation at Extremes (ICMRE 2019) will be held in Hefei, Anhui on May 29 – June 2, 2019. Supported by the journal Matter and Radiation at Extremes (MRE), ICMRE is a serial conference convened annually since 2016 when MRE was launched. ICMRE 2016, ICMRE 2017 and ICMRE 2018 were held successfully in Chengdu, Beijing and Qingdao, respectively. Attendance at ICMRE generally varies from 200 to 300, including international attendees from about 10 countries. The goal of ICMRE is to bring together scientists from all over the world to exchange opinions and discuss latest achievements in the field of matter and radiation at extreme conditions.
ICMRE2019, hosted by the Institute of Fluid Physics, China Academy of Engineering Physics and University of Science and Technology of China, will provide a forum to discuss the latest results of physics, technology and applications in the areas of matter and radiation at extremes. It is organized together with the 1st International Conference on Innovative Fusion Approaches (Xi'an, May 26 – 28, 2019). We look forward to your participation in beautiful Hefei next year!
