The second conference in this series was organized by professors S.E. Stanzl-Tschegg and H. Mayer and held as “Fatigue in the Very High Cycle Regime” on July 2-4, 2001 in Vienna.

At that time, it was agreed that the conference would be held every three years under the name “Very High Cycle Fatigue.”
