International Conference on High-Temperature Shape Memory Alloys | 5-8 May 2015 in Wildbad Kreuth: Save the Date!

SAVE-THE-DATE for the International Conference on High-Temperature Shape Memory Alloys - From Basics to Applications to be held May 5-8, 2015 in Wildbad Kreuth, Germany.

Lately, high-temperature shape memory alloys have attracted a lot of interest as the demand for components operating at temperature above 100 °C has grown significantly. There have been substantial advances lately, but challenging issues still limit the widespread use of these unique materials. The conference will provide a forum to present and discuss the latest result in this rapidly evolving field, and aims at bridging the gap from basics to applications.

The topics of the conference will include:
• Constitution and Alloy Development
• Processing
• Characterization and Testing
• Functional and Structural Degradation
• Modeling
• Applications

The full Call for Papers will be released soon. For further information, please see the conference website:
