Cancelation of BMG XIII conference
My dear colleagues and conference participants:
Peace to you, especially in this pandemic season!
We are all aware of the fact that the conference was initially scheduled to hold in Hong Kong December 2019, then postponed to May 2020 due to social unrest, and eventually moved to Shenzhen, China, in December 2020. The frequent changes in time and location, although are necessary, have led to extra burden to all of us who already committed to participate this conference.
With the uncertainty of ongoing pandemic and the turmoil of political/economical/social conflicts of different governments, it is almost impossible to confirm the conference anytime in the future, at least more than one year. Consequently, on behalf of the international advisory board, I now announce to cancel the BMG-13 conference. We wish you to understand that it is our most difficult, but also necessary, decision. This does not mean that we are reluctant to serve the scientific community, but on the contrary, it is probably to everyone’s best technical/personal interest for the time being. Your personal safety is always our first priority. Once the social/political situation is settled down, we will immediately plan and announce the next conference.
Stay safe and healthy!

Chair, International Advisory Board of BMG Conference Series
Postponement of BMG XIII
Dear speakers and colleagues,
On behalf of the organizing committee of BMG XIII, we regrettably inform you that the BMG XIII conference must be postponed because of the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19. It is a difficult decision but your safety is our first priority. The tentative date of BMG XIII will be 7-11 Dec 2020. Please note that this date is possibly subject to change considering the uncertain pandemic situation. We will keep you informed at any change as early as possible. All the invitations and already approved applications remain valid.
This is a rather difficult and painful decision; however, we must assure your safety. We apologize for any inconvenience that might have caused. Please take care and keep safe.

Shenzhen is a mega city just next to Hong Kong (about 30 mins train ride), well known as the hub of innovation and technology. It hosts a number of large high-tech companies, such as Tencent, Huawei, DJI and so on. It is a suitable place for the BMG conference in the sense that it houses many local industries interested in the applications of metals and alloys, such as BMGs and HEAs.
