We are happy to announce and welcome you this year to an online seminar in place for the BiGmax workshop on Big-Data-Driven Materials Science. We were enlightened by your interest in the workshop back then in April. With the global Covid19 pandemic now, the online workshop will be slightly shorter. Currently, two topical sessions are planned with a half-day online seminar for each. One session will be on machine learning and image processing for materials science data. The other session will be on machine learning for and on the development of ab-initio methods. Each session will contain live talks and posters presentations. Aligned with the mission of BiGmax, the workshop will connect materials scientists with physicists, and experts for machine learning, scientific computing, and data science.We will contact all participants who had originally planned to join and contribute to the workshop. We will send an email invitation to every single one of you with the program and the details on how to participate. With that we hope to reconvene online this year and are very much looking forward to hearing, discussing, and learning from your contributions. [more]

As Additive Manufacturing technologies are being adopted in more and more industries, the focus of research and development is shifting to the materials in use. Additionally, an increasing number of researchers in academia and industry realise the potential of Additive Manufacturing to produce materials that were heretofore inaccessible by conventional manufacturing techniques or not economically feasible. The Alloys for Additive Manufacturing Symposium aims to be a venue for the discussion of these issues by researchers in academia and application. All materials scientific issues pertaining to the additive manufacturing of metals, alloys and composites including a metallic phase fall under the scope of this conference. [more]

The atomic and micro-scale structures of most materials are 3D, but a lack of tools for experimental 3D investigation of materials has limited most published research, including simulation and modelling, to 2D datasets. In the 21st century this situation has changed significantly. New 3D characterization and modelling methods are generating powerful insights into materials properties and microstructure formation on all length scales. [more]

Additive Manufacturing is a technology on the verge of widespread adoption. In some fields such as dental implants, the tooling or the aerospace industry, it is rapidly becoming state of the art for the production of highly complex and/or individualised parts. Research is currently focussing on improvement of the processes in terms of reliability and productivity. At the same time, many researchers and users come to the conclusion that a renewed effort in understanding materials behaviour during the AM processes is a key requirement to pushing AM closer to application.

4th International Symposium on Computational Mechanics of Polycrystals

4th International Symposium on Computational Mechanics of Polycrystals
The Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf is organizing the 4th International Symposium on Computational Mechanics of Polycrystals and we would like to invite you and your research colleagues to participate in this event.This symposium is part of a biannual series of symposia that originated with the establishment of the first joint research group formed between the Max Planck Society and the Fraunhofer Society and investigating Computational Mechanics of Polycrystals. Scope Plastic deformation of polycrystals is the result of a complex interplay of deformation mechanisms in individual grains and grain interactions. The mechanims mediating plastic deformation, e.g. dislocation glide, mechanical twinning, or displacive phase transformations, occur on the atomic scale. However, the macroscopic response of polycrystalline materials is heavily influenced by a hierarchy of microstructures, as for example precipitate structure, dislocation arrangement, grain boundaries, or crystallite orientation distribution. To arrive at computationally efficient material models various coarse-graining steps are necessary to incorporate the small-scale behaviour in effective continuum descriptions. Simulation can replace expensive and time-consuming experiments in the design of components as well as of the tools for their production. However, accurate material models of polycrystal mechanics, which take the microstructure evolution into account, are indispensable for the achievement of such potential cost-savings and reduction in development times. The symposium shall provide an up-to-date overview on the multi-scale modelling and simulation of polycrystal plasticity of metals. Special attention shall be given to industrially relevant multi-phase materials and materials showing mechanical twinning and phase transformations as for instance complex-phase steels, TRIP/TWIP steels, and Magnesium. In this spirit, we are looking forward to experimental, theoretical and computational contributions on all involved length scales. Topics include but are not restricted - fundamental mechanisms of crystal plasticity - TWIP/TRIP effect - behavior of grain ensembles - coarse-graining in polycrystal deformation - materials processing … The event will take place on July 14th and 15th, 2014 in the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung at Max-Planck-Straße 1, 40237 Düsseldorf, Germany. If you would like to attend this event, then please register online before April 30st 2014. We emphasize that registration is mandatory and that there are limited places only.

EBSD 2011 - 20th Annual Meeting at the MPIE

EBSD 2011 - 20th Annual Meeting at the MPIE
The 20th annual meeting on Electron Back Scattering Diffraction (EBSD) techniques will take place from March 28-31 at the MPIE Düsseldorf. Stefan Zaefferer, head of the group 'Microscopy and Diffraction' and organiser of the conference, expects around 100 delegates from the relevant field which probably makes this meeting one of the largest ever held in this series. EBSD is a powerful and ever-developing tool for microstructure characterization in the scanning electron microscope. Besides its standard applications for quantitative microstructure investigations there are many emerging fields of applications where the technique reaches into the regions of classical x-ray and transmission electron microscopy investigations. Since its beginnings the English Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) accompanied this development by organizing annual meetings on the subject, usually in Great Britain. This is the first time that the meeting is held outside of Great Britain. On these meetings the leading experts and the everyday users join to discuss applications and developments in technique and equipment. [more]
