History and Scope
The International Conference on Solid→Solid Phase Transformations in Inorganic Materials (PTM), held every 5 years, is organized in a way to maximize the interaction and discussion between researchers in the field. The 8th PTM conference will be held in China for the first time, the previous conferences being held in:
1981 - Pittsburgh
1987 - Cambridge
1994 - Nemacolin Woodlands
1999 - Kyoto
2005 - Phoenix
2010 - Avignon
2015- Whistler
The following broad topics will be covered by PTM2020:
1) Diffusional transformations including nucleation, growth, coarsening, precipitation, spinodal decomposition, interphase migration, austenite-ferrite transformation, order-disorder transformations, elasticity;
2) Displacive transformations including martensitic transformations and shape memory alloys;
3) Advances in experimental techniques including scattering and diffraction techniques, atom probe, high-resolution electron microscopy and laser ultrasonics
4) Advances in modelling and simulation including atomistic simulations, phase field and other meso-scale simulations, multi-scale modelling, fundamentals of structures, thermodynamics and diffusion ;
5) Industrial applications including phase transformations in advanced high strength steels, thermo-mechanical processing, welding and nuclear materials;
6) Emerging areas including phase transformations during additive manufacturing, phase transitions in interfaces, high entropy alloys; amorphous alloys/quasicrystals, nanomaterials and materials for sustainable energy.
