Welcome to the Solid-Solid Phase Transformations in Inorganic Materials 2005 Conference
This conference follows the tradition of the International Solid-to-Solid Phase Transformation Conferences held at Carnegie Mellon in 1981, Cambridge University in 1987, Nemacolin Woodlands in 1994 and Kyoto, Japan in 1999.
To discuss the most current developments in understanding fundamental aspects of solid-to-solid phase transformations in inorganic materials;
- To provide researchers with a survey of new experimental, mathematical, theoretical and computational techniques applicable to the understanding of solid-to-solid phase transformations;
- To present critical comparisons between theory and experiment;
- To compare fundamental aspects of phase transformation in ceramics, metals, minerals and other materials;
- To provide those who are involved in practical applications of phase transformations an opportunity to familiarize themselves with new developments in the field; and
- To provide an informal and relaxed atmosphere in which scientists can discuss their work with colleagues from many countries.
A series of invited papers will be presented at the conference. Most of these papers
will be oriented towards either a critical comparison of theory and experiment, new
experimental approaches or new theoretical developments and paradigms. They will
focus upon understanding fundamental mechanisms and governing principles of
solid-to-solid phase transformations.
As of January 15, 2005, the following organizations are co-sponsors for PTM 2005.
