• The Dislocations 2019 Conference, will be held on 15-20 September 2019, in Haifa, Israel.

    Dislocations 2019 is the sixth edition of the Dislocations conference series, which aims at bringing together researches with a common interest – studying dislocation properties and how to relate them to plastic deformation.  

    The conference attracts experienced and young researchers from different disciplines to discuss experimental observations, computer simulations and theoretical models of dislocations and plasticity. The latest results are presented during the single-session conference. Invited and contributed talks will be given during the conference days, including two poster sessions.

    The conference series started on June 2000 at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (MD, USA). Since then, “Dislocations” conferences were held at La Colle sur Loup (France) in 2004, Hong Kong in 2008, Budapest (Hungary) in 2011 and at West Lafayette, (IN, USA) on 2016. The next conference will be held in Haifa (Israel) during the week of 15-20 September 2019.

    Haifa, the port city in Northern Israel is the third largest city and one of the prettiest, built on the slopes of Mount Carmel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. We hope that you will take this opportunity to benefit from a stimulating scientific meeting and visit some of the interesting and unique sites in Haifa and in Israel.

    Abstracts submission will open by January 15, 2019.

  • The 14th international conference Local Mechanical Properties will be held in Prague, November 6-8, 2019.

    The meeting will provide an opportunity to highlight recent results of research and development in the field of local mechanical testing, micromechanics, materials engineering, experimental methods, modeling and important industrial applications, with the aim to characterize mechanical properties of materials from nano- to micro/meso-scale.

    Contributions on indentation and methods for hardness and other mechanical properties assessment, measurement of deformations and stresses, time-dependent properties with related microstructure analyses (TEM/SEM, AFM,TERS, etc.) regardless of material type (metals, ceramics, plastics, biomaterials, concrete, etc.) are welcome. Contributions containing combination of the techniques and micro-structurally motivated material models are highly appreciated. However, contributions related to large scale mechanical properties are out of the scope of the conference.

    List of confirmed invited speakers:

    • Prof. Dr. Gerhard Dehm, director at the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung GmbH in Düsseldorf and professor at the Ruhr-Universität-Bochum.
    • Prof. Dr. Mike Swain, professor of Bio-engineering and Biomaterials at the Don State Technical University in Rostov on Don in Russia as well as Emeritus Professor at Sydney University.

    List of confirmed keynote speakers (more will be announced later):

    • Prof. Ján Dusza, DrSc., Institute of Materials Research, Slovak Academy of Sciences.
    • Dr. Michael Griepentrog, BAM Berlin, Department of Materials Protection and Surface Technologies.
    • Mgr. Petr Klapetek, Ph.D., CMI Brno, Department of Nanometrology.

    Confirmed participating companies are (more will be announced later): Anton Paar, Edlin, MT Morava.

    Interested exhibitors and sponsor are asked to contact chair@lmp-conference.cz

  • We are pleased to announce you that the Son et Lumière 2019: Wave Interactions at the Nanoscale thematic school will be held in Les Houches from March 11 to 22, 2019.

    This event will be the seventh edition of the Son et Lumière International School dedicated to nanophononics, i.e. the study most often by optical methods, hence the name Son et Lumière (Sound and Light) given to the series of schools ‒ of phonons in nanoscale or nanostructured systems. The two main goals of the school are to provide a detailed overview of this area of ​​research for PhD students and young researchers beginning in this field, and to promote interactions between the different communities (optics, nanoacoustics, nanothermics, optomechanics, ...) that contribute to its development.

    The deadline for submitting applications to attend the school is 15 December 2018. More information on the school is available at https://sel2019.sciencesconf.org/ (or, if necessary, by sending an email to sel2019@sciencesconf.org).

  • This symposium covers all aspects of tribology, mechanical properties, and adhesion of coatings and engineered surfaces. The scopesincludes both experimental investigations and modelling of static (e.g., indentation and adhesion) and dynamic (e.g., oscillating, scratching, sliding and rolling) contacts, and contact/fracture mechanics from atomistic to macroscopic length scales. They welcome contributions that improve scientific and mechanistic understanding of tribo-mechanical responses, characterization and performance of engineered surfaces and coatings, processing-structure-property-performance relationships, design of coatings for specific applications, and size effects. Additional emphasis is given to multifunctional (hard and lubricious) and nanocomposite coatings for extreme environments, nanostructured coatings, diamond and diamond-like carbon, and coatings for advanced aerospace, automotive, and machining applications, along with advances in instrumentation and measurement techniques.

     You are welcome to submit a contribution in one of the three sessions:

    E1. Friction, Wear, Lubrication Effects, and Modeling

    E2. Mechanical Properties and Adhesion

    E3. Tribology of Coatings for Automotive and Aerospace Applications

    Please submit your abstract until October 1, 2018.
