The International Conference on Material Sciences (CSM) was created in 1996 by Professor Tayssir Hamieh, the Coordinator of the strong French-Lebanese collaboration between the University of Haute-Alsace (UHA) and the Lebanese University (LU) (the agreement between the two French and Lebanese institutions was cosigned on 1994.

At the beginning, CSM conference was called the French-Lebanese Conference on Materials Science because of strong relationships and collaborations between French and Lebanese universities and institutions that led to French participation of scientists and researchers larger than of that of the other foreign countries.

The first CSM was held in Beirut from 10th to 13th of October 1996, by collaboration between LU, UHA, French Embassy and the National Council of the Scientific Research of Lebanon (NCSRL). More than 100 scientists from different European, Arab and American countries participated in this conference by presenting their more recent research works.

The second Conference on Material Sciences (CSM2) was organized in Beirut from 25th to 27th of May 2000 and realized a real success by the growing participation of scientists and researchers (more than 180 participants) from various countries. A strong participation of Algerian, French and American scientists also participated in the organization of this periodic manifestation. This CSM2 was dedicated to the memory of Professor Hafez Kobeissi the General Secretary of the NCSRL who actively participated in the success and the co-organization of the first conference CSM1. This great Lebanese scientist devoted his life to establish research infrastructures in Lebanon based on an excellent cooperation between the Lebanese and foreign scientific institutions (research centers and universities).

Since 2000, our CSM conference was organized every two years as shown below:

CSM2 held on 25-26 May 2000 with more than 200 participants;

The success of this international conference broke all records with the significant and active participation that continues to grow since its creation in October 1996 because of the highest quality and seriousness of the different organizers of CSM.

Since 2006, our CSM conference became an international conference, the biggest in the middle east region, this conducted to call it the International Conference of Material Sciences.
