The National Research and Development Institute for Textiles and Leather (INCDTP) Leather and Footwear Research Institute (ICPI) Bucharest, Romania announces The 6th International Conference on Advanced Materials and Systems ICAMS 2016 - to be held in Bucharest, Romania, on October 20-22, 2016.
The aim of the Conference is to bring together researchers, scientists, engineers, experts and policy makers from all over the world to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results on important issues related to novel materials and systems in science and technology in the 21st century, and to provide a good opportunity for networking for all these groups.
The attendees will discuss issues of smart and functional materials and biomaterials, systems and technologies, including new processing methods, and innovative applications. Special attention will be given to quality management and competitiveness on the global market and the impact on the environment and cultural heritage.
The papers will be published in the ICAMS 2016 Proceedings, which will be sent for inclusion to ISI - Thomson Reuters and other international data bases such as SCOPUS, Compendex, CiteFactor and others.
Previous ICAMS Proceedings are indexed in SCOPUS, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) Database, USA, CiteFactor and Technical Information Library of Hannover, Germany. The 2010 edition has been accepted and indexed in ISI Proceedings.
The organizers welcome and invite all those interested to further access the Conference website on a regular basis for more information.


 The International Conference on Advanced Materials and Systems has become a traditional multi- and inter-disciplinary event that facilitates the exchange of knowledge in the area of advanced experimental or computational environmental technologies to structurally characterize materials and technological systems.
 The sixth edition of ICAMS Conference was held on October 20th-22nd, 2016, at Capital Plaza Hotel, Bucharest, featuring in total 98 scientific papers from 240 authors and co-authors from 12 countries (Austria, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, China, Greece, India, Italy, Lithuania, Portugal, Turkey, Ukraine and Romania).

 The two plenary presentations raised the interest of the participants through their importance and high degree of innovation. Thus, the presentation of Prof. Dr. Sandra Carvalho, from the University of Minho, Portugal, entitled "Thin Films as Electrodes for Biosensor" addressed the development of multifunctional antibacterial coatings applied onto polymeric substrates to make biosensors with medical applications, fits in the topical thematic of smart materials. Mrs. Petya Gancheva, Expert in International Programs and Projects at the Ruse Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Bulgaria, illustrated, in her presentation entitled "Responsible Research and Innovation - A Concept Shaping the New Understanding of Science and Technology Development", the need to involve society in the decision-making process regarding research and innovation directions for its sustainable and inclusive development. The presentation is based on the European project Responsible Research and Innovation Tools (RRI Tools), whose objective is to develop training and dissemination tools regarding responsible research and innovation that contribute to aligning research results with the needs of society, also an issue of interest in the European Horizon 2020 program.

 Participants also had the opportunity of assisting to presentations of two of the most prestigious events in the leather and footwear field, namely a follow-up of the 2016 edition of Simac Tanning Tech fair for state-of-the-art leather and footwear manufacturing systems and technologies, held by Dr. Maria Furfaro from ASSOMAC, Italy, and an invitation to the XXXIV IULTCS Congress to be held in 2017 in India, from Dr. Sengoda Gounder Rajamani, Chair of the Asian International Union of Environment (AIUE) Commission.
 The program of this year's edition included six thematic sessions of oral presentations, each section being chaired by one national and one international expert in the respective areas, and six poster sessions (Advanced Materials, Innovative Technologies, Cultural Heritage, Industrial Ecology & Circular Economy, Economics, Management & Marketing, Biomaterials).
 Participants in the International Conference ICAMS had the opportunity to attend three workshops held on the second day of the conference. The workshop dedicated to ERASMUS+ projects presented the aim, objectives and results of Knowledge4Foot and Fit to Comfort projects focusing on transferring research and innovation to footwear manufacturing and introduced a new project, "Manager in an Efficient and Innovative Leather Company - LEAMAN". The second workshop focused on results obtained in the ongoing NANO_SAFE_LEATHER project, whose aim is to study the effect of applying materials with advanced functions for leather surface finishing on human health and the environment.
 This year's Conference also served as an excellent setting for celebrating "65 years of scientific research on textiles and leather", an anniversary workshop presenting the main achievements in the textile and leather processing field that ended with a small ceremony of awarding plaques to former and current directors and notable employees of INCDTP-ICPI, as well as to partners and collaborators.
 Recognition and celebrations continued with awards for the best oral and poster presentations by young scientists (aged under 35), selected by a special committee and sponsored by CHEMSPEED.
 The sixth edition of ICAMS was one of the most important biennial meetings dedicated to research, development and innovation and has constantly offered the latest advances to the 157 top delegates and specialists, as well as associated events, such as: networking events, visits to laboratories and research departments, technical-scientific exhibition.
 The Proceedings of the current edition (ICAMS 2016) is published by CERTEX under ISSN 2068-0783; the volume contains 95 full papers in English, 600 pages, and was submitted for indexing in databases such as SCOPUS, Chemical Abstracts Service, EBSCO, Web of Science and other international databases.

Publication Ethics & Malpractice Statement

Our Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement is based on the Best Practice Guidelines for Conference Proceedings Editors and the position statements developed by the Committee on Publication Ethics COPE's Best Practice Guidelines.


Conformance to standards of ethical behavior is therefore expected of all parties involved: Authors, Editors, Reviewers, and the Publisher.
The Author declares that the manuscript is original and in its present form has not been published elsewhere in any form, that it has not been submitted to any journal/proceedings and that it will not be submitted to any other journal/proceedings, if it is accepted for publication in the ICAMS Conference Proceedings;
- The Author is responsible for the research they have done and for the results described in the paper;
- If the article is a joint work of several authors (co-authors), the Author who submits the article declares that any person named as author (co-author) of the Article is aware about the requirements of this agreement and has agreed to being so named;
- The Author warrants that the article does not infringe upon any copyright, contains no libelous or otherwise unlawful statements, and does not otherwise infringe on the rights of others;
- The Author transfers the copyright for this publication/article to the Publisher;
- The Author licenses to the Publisher the right to distribute the Article as a part of ICAMS Conference proceedings or archive or any other issue managed by the ICAMS Scientific Committee;
- The Author has the rights to:

  • Distribute non-commercially individual hard copies of the article to the interested parties, with proper citation to the published source.
  • Use, after publication, part or all of the Article, providing a proper acknowledgement to the source and to the Publisher.

Reporting Standards

Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.

Data Access and Retention

Authors are asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data and should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.

Originality and Plagiarism

Authors should ensure that submitted work is original and has not been published elsewhere in any language, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

Applicable copyright laws and conventions should be followed. Copyright material (e.g. tables, figures or extensive quotations) should be reproduced only with appropriate permission and acknowledgement.

Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication

An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

Acknowledgement of Sources

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

Authorship of the Paper

Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors.

The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.

Therefore author/s should fill in and send the Publishing Copyright Agreement to the ICAMS Review Committee by e-mail or fax.


If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript.

Reporting of Research Involving Humans or Animals

Appropriate approval, licensing or registration should be obtained before the research begins and details should be provided in the report (e.g. Institutional Review Board, Research Ethics Committee approval, national licensing authorities for the use of animals).

If requested by editors, authors should supply evidence that reported research received the appropriate approval and was carried out ethically (e.g. copies of approvals, licenses, participant consent forms).

Researchers should not generally publish or share identifiable individual data collected in the course of research without specific consent from the individual (or their representative).

The appropriate statistical analyses should be determined at the start of the study and a data analysis plan for the pre-specified outcomes should be prepared and followed. Secondary analyses should be distinguished from primary analyses and those set out in the data analysis plan. Researchers should publish all meaningful research results that might contribute to understanding.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest

All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.

Fundamental Errors in Published Works

When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.




Editors should evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit. An editor must not use unpublished information in the editor's own research without the express written consent of the author. Editors should take reasonable responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper.

Contribution to Editorial Decisions

Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper.


Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process.


Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.

Standards of Objectivity

Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

Acknowledgement of Sources

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest

Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

Reviewer Misconduct

ICAMS Editors will take reviewer misconduct seriously and pursue any allegation of breach of confidentiality, non-declaration of conflicts of interest (financial or non-financial), inappropriate use of confidential material, or delay of peer review for competitive advantage. Allegations of serious reviewer misconduct, such as plagiarism, will be taken to the institutional level.




Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviews should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments, so that authors can use them for improving the paper. Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

Publication Decisions

The ICAMS Review Committee is responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published. The Review Team may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The Review Team may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

Fair Play

An editor at any time evaluates manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to the nature of the authors or the host institution including race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.


The editors and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate. In the case of a misconduct investigation, ICAMS may disclose material to third parties (e.g., an institutional investigation committee or other editors).

ICAMS does not disclose reviewers' identities. However, if reviewers wish to disclose their names, this is permitted.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor's own research without the express written consent of the author.


When genuine errors in published work are pointed out by readers, authors, or editors, which do not render the work invalid, a correction (or erratum) will be published as soon as possible. The online version of the paper may be corrected with a date of correction and a link to the printed erratum. If the error renders the work or substantial parts of it invalid, the paper should be retracted with an explanation as to the reason for retraction (i.e., honest error).

Ensuring the Integrity of the Published Record - Suspected Research or Publication Misconduct

If serious concerns are raised by readers, reviewers, or others, about the conduct, validity, or reporting of academic work, ICAMS Team will initially contact the authors and allow them to respond to the concerns. If that response is unsatisfactory, ICAMS will take this to the institutional level. In cases when concerns are very serious and the published work is likely to influence clinical practice or public health, ICAMS may consider informing readers about these concerns, by issuing an expression of concern, while the investigation is ongoing. Once an investigation is concluded ICAMS will publish comment that explains the findings of the investigation. ICAMS may decide to retract a paper if the Editorial Board is convinced that serious misconduct has happened even if an investigation by an institution or national body does not recommend it.

ICAMS will respond to all allegations or suspicions of research or publication misconduct raised by readers, reviewers, or other editors. Cases of possible plagiarism or duplicate/redundant publication will be assessed by the journal. In other cases, ICAMS may request an investigation by the institution or other appropriate bodies (after seeking an explanation from the authors first and if that explanation is unsatisfactory).

Retracted papers will be retained online, and they will be prominently marked as a retraction in all online versions, including the PDF, for the benefit of future readers.


Author/s should fill in and send the Publishing Copyright Agreement to the ICAMS Review Committee by e-mail or fax. This signed statement must be received by ICAMS Review Committee when manuscript is accepted for review for possible publication in ICAMS Conference Proceedings. Authors of manuscripts will assign Transfer of copyright Agreement to ICAMS Scientific Committee the permanent right to distribute their papers, but they will retain their copyright. After the paper has appeared in ICAMS Conference Proceedings, authors may republish their texts as long as they clearly acknowledge ICAMS as the original publisher and the only source for citation purposes.
