Nanomaterials by Severe Plastic Deformation

InterNano - Upcoming Events - January 9, 2017 - 11:14am
ConferenceSunday, July 2, 2017 to Friday, July 7, 2017Sydney, Australia http://www.nanospd7.com/ The NanoSPD conferences have been an important series of international events highlighting the potential of severe plastic deformation as a tool for producing bulk nanostructured and ultrafine grained materials. The conferences of this series take place every three years. The previous conferences held in Moscow (1999), Vienna (2002), Fukuoka (2005), Goslar (2008), Nanjing (2011), and Metz (2014) have been excellent forums for discussions of a wealth of challenging scientific problems associated with this field of research. NanoSPD7 will provide a platform for the NanoSPD community to present new results and exchange research ideas. Your participation in NanoSPD7 and your scientific contributions are essential for its success. We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Sydney that will be hosting NanoSPD7.
