Since the 60s the state-of-the-art in the field of liquid and amorphous metals and alloys is the focus of an international conference, the “Liquid and Amorphous Metals conference” (LAM), which is today at its 18th edition. Born as a conference on liquid metals in 1966 at Brookhaven, since 1980 it has been renewed including amorphous metals (1980, Grenoble, France) and then has continued on a three years basis, with the last three editions held in Beijing, China, in 2013, in Bonn, Germany, in 2016 and in Lyon, France, in 2019. The 18th edition of the LAM will be hosted by Hiroshima University in Japan from the 4th to the 9th of September 2022, 50 years from 1972 when the second edition was held in Tokyo, Japan. The conference is held at JMS Aster Plaza Hiroshima International Youth House in Hiroshima city.
