On behalf of the organizing committee, I am delighted to invite engineers, academics, managers, students, operators, and technology suppliers to COM2020. For decades, COM has been the venue for metallurgists and material engineers to network, develop and share ideas, and celebrate the success of their colleagues.

We have assembled a comprehensive and rich technical program themed around Emerging Technologies, and offering 11 symposia, two plenary talks, a panel discussion, and numerous keynote and invited talks. The conference is also enriched with short courses, field trips, and many social events organized for the participants and companions.

We thank the participants, sponsors, session chairs, and speakers for their contributions to building this exciting program and look forward to you enjoying what COM2020 and Toronto have to offer.
