Microscopy of Oxidation 10

‌‌10th International Conference - 3 - 5 April 2017 - Loughborough University, UK

Co-chairs: Gordon J Tatlock, University of Liverpool/Hugh E Evans, University of Birmingham

‌Second Announcement

The tenth conference in this popular series will be held at Loughborough University, which has an excellent reputation for teaching and research, strong links with business and industry, and unrivalled sporting achievement.

CONFERENCE

Commencing on the Monday morning, the programme will consist of contributed papers from leading experts in the field in oral sessions.  Of equal importance, posters will be on display throughout the conference, with a poster session on the Tuesday afternoon.  On the Monday evening there will be an informal Wine Reception and Buffet at Holywell Park.  It is planned to hold a Conference Dinner at The National Space Centre in Leicester on the Tuesday evening.

SCOPE

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:

Tomography/3D Imaging
Combined effects of stress and corrosion/oxidation
Transient oxidation re-visited
Environmental barrier coatings
Oxidation of heterogeneous materials

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 wide sense to include SIMS, Auger, EPMA, etc., as well as light and electron microscopy.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Contributions are invited on any of the topics mentioned in the scope paragraphs.  Prospective authors are requested to submit a short abstract (200-300 words) of their paper to arrive at The University of Liverpool, School of Engineering, by 5 December 2016.  Authors will be informed by January 2017 whether their paper has been accepted for oral or poster presentation.  The conference language will be English.

POSTERS

Posters will be displayed throughout the meeting with a formal poster session on the Tuesday afternoon.  Poster authors will have the same publication opportunities as oral session authors.

PUBLICATION

An abstract book will be circulated to delegates at the conference.  It is intended to publish the conference proceedings after the meeting.  Full texts of oral and poster presentations will be submitted in camera ready form and refereed at the Conference.  Manuscripts for publication will be accepted until the first day of the Conference.

VENUE 

The Conference will be held at Loughborough University.  Both the technical and poster sessions will take place at Holywell Park on the University campus.  Accommodation will be available at Burleigh Court and The Link hotel, which are both situated on campus.  Bookings will be made by delegates directly with the hotels with a “conference code”.  Alternatively, delegates may like to choose other hotels in the city centre.
