The eighth International Cryogenic Materials Conference (ICMC~ was held on the campus of the University of California at Los Angeles in collaboration with the Cryogenic Engineering Conference (CEC) on July 24-28, 1989. The continuity of the bond between these two major conferences in the field of cryogenics is indicative of the extreme interdependence of the subject matter. The main purpose of the conference is sharing of the latest advances in low temperature materials science and technology.
However, the many side benefits which accrue when this many experts gather, such as identification of new research areas, formation of new collaborations which often cross the boundaries of both scientific discipline and politics, and a chance for those new to the field to meet the old-timers, may override the stated purpose.
