11th International Conference on MICROSCOPY OF OXIDATION


Owing to the present Covid-19 situation it has been decided to postpone the meeting until 12-14 September 2022. More information regarding Abstracts will be released early next year.


7-9 September 2020

Cranfield University, United Kingdom

Co-Chairs: Gordon J. Tatlock, University of Liverpool; Rebecca L. Higginson, Loughborough University

The eleventh Conference in this popular series will be held at Cranfield University which is a British postgraduate and research-based public university specialising in science, engineering, technology and management.

A wide range of oxidation phenomena will be discussed at the Conference, from oxide nucleation and thin film growth through to scale failure and protective coatings.  Materials of interest will include intermetallics and composites as well as metals and ceramics in both monolithic and coated forms.  Several topical areas will be highlighted during the meeting including:

3D Imaging/Tomography

In-situ Electron Microscopy

Link between High Temperature Degradation and Additive Manufacturing

Complex Environments

Compound Effects of Stress and Corrosion / Oxidation

Other sessions during the Conference will also cover the full range of oxidation investigations in a variety of atmospheres.  The underlying common factor in all presentations will be the critical role played by microscopy, interpreted in its widest sense to include SIMS, Auger, EPMA, etc., as well as light and electron microscopy.

A Second Announcement and Call for Papers will be issued in March 2020.  The deadline for abstracts will be 1st May 2020.  If you wish to learn more about this Conference, please email Marg Robinshaw at mrobin@liv.ac.uk
