Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to participate to “Advances in Applied Physics and Materials Science Congress” which will be held from 12 to 15 May 2011 in Antalya, Turkey.

APMAS 2011 intends to be a global forum for researchers and engineers to present and discuss recent innovations and new techniques in Applied Physics and Materials Science.

The Organizing Committee also encourages companies and institutions to showcase their modern products and equipment in the conference area. The congress will be held in Kemer - Antalya, attracting millions of people with its beautiful nature and historical riches. The combination of sun, deep blue sea and mountain covered with trees cannot be seen easily all together in everywhere.
