Welcome to the 9th International Conference on Self-Healing Materials (ICSHM2024) that will take place from June 24th to June 26th 2024 in Madrid. The 9th ICSHM continues the long-standing tradition of this biennial conference focused on advances in self-healing material science, engineering and technological applications. Since its first edition (Noordwijk, NL - 2007) and followed by 7 successful ICSHM events organized by leaders in the field (Chicago, USA - 2009; Bath, UK - 2011; Ghent, Belgium - 2013; Durham, USA - 2015; Friedrichshafen, Germany - 2017; Yokohama, Japan - 2019 and Milan, Italy - 2022) the mission of this well-stablished conference remains unchanged. In this 9th edition we will provide again a high-level international platform where recognized experts and participants will share new developments, research and testing technologies that will contribute to a more balanced materials and structures end-of-life.

We are sure the conference will inspire you in moving self-healing materials one step further in their role to make a more sustainable society following the famous Madrilenian inspirational saying "from Madrid to the sky".


We look forward to seeing you in Madrid in 2024!
