The first International Conference on Advanced Materials and Energy Technologies (AMET’24) will organize (optional) workshops covering five topics which are listed below.

3D Printing using Cura and Z-suite

  • Dr. Ilyes BENSALEM | University of Setif 1
  • Dr. Abdelghani KHENNAB | University of Batna 2

The 3D printing process builds a 3-dimensional object from a digital computer-aided design model, usually by successively adding material layer by layer, which is why it is also known as additive manufacturing. Objects or parts are built in very thin layers, allowing for highly complex geometries that are impossible to achieve via any other manufacturing process.

Density Functional Theory (DFT)

  • Dr. Haroun RIGHI | University of Batna 1
  • Dr. Aissam HIDOUCI | University Center of Barika
  • Dr. Raouf Beddiaf | Higher National School of Renewable Energies, Environment & Sustainable Development

Density functional theory (DFT) is a method for solving the electronic structure problem defined by the Schrödinger equation of interacting electrons.

Molecular Dynamics (MD)

Dr. Zaiter Abdallah | University of Oum El-Bouaghi


In only a few decades the Molecular Dynamics (MD) world has moved from a field dominated by a few highly specialized groups with a deep knowledge of the technology, who are typically method and software developers, to a situation where MD is present in many more areas of science, including biology.

How to get published ?

Dr. Zaiter Abdallah | University of Oum El-Bouaghi


The aim of this workshop is to guide young researchers through all stages of the publication process, allowing them to plan their writing and publication methods, and ultimately their career, with much greater care. This workshop offers a guide through all stages of the publication process, using a broad variety of tools and principles which can be used to take control of one’s publication strategies. This allows PhD students to take off on a flying start: knowledge and skills that would otherwise be the result of a long process of trial and error are now ready-at-hand for them to use at the very beginnings of their academic career.

The following points will be discussed:

The paper submission and publishing process, specifically focusing on what the authors should consider when writing a quality manuscript:
    – Preparations.
    – Article construction.
    – Language.
    – Technical details.
    – Where to submit (how to select a journal for publishing).
    – How the paper review process is organized.
    – How to do manuscript revisions and what to respond to reviewers.
    – What ethical issues could appear.
    – What else to do after the paper is accepted.

At the end of the talk, the Q&A session will be followed by an open discussion.

Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) Characterization Techniques

Dr. Khaoula RAHMOUNI | University of Oum El-Bouaghi


The aim is that the workshop will help you expand your knowledge in transmission electron microscopy and help you appreciate how quickly advances in technology are developing. This will allow you to choose the appropriate instrument or technique(s) when dealing with materials.
