GOAL AND AUDIENCE
Exactly 30 years after its first occurence in Paris, the triennal international conference IIB on « Intergranular and Interphase Boundaries in Materials » will take place again in Paris, at the École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Paris.
The IIB Conferences represent a unique international forum bringing together the specialists working in different areas of Interface Science. Researchers that otherwise are mainly focused on their scientific domain have a unique opportunity to exchange their views and ideas with colleagues investigating the different aspects of interfacial behavior.
IIB conferences strongly promote an interdisciplinary approach in the field of grain boundaries and interphase boundaries structure, and properties in a wide range of materials. A variety of hot topics will be covered such as:
- Characterization of interfaces
- Modeling of interfaces
- Thermodynamics and kinetics of interfaces
- Mechanical properties and interfaces
- Interfaces in advanced and emerging materials
- Electronic, magnetic and photonic materials, energy materials, nanomaterials and low-dimensional systems, metals, ceramics, composites, polymer and organic materials, biomaterials
WHERE AND WHEN
IIB 2019 will be a one-session conference based on invited lectures, extended discussion periods, and poster sessions (posters will be exposed during entire duration of the conference).
The program will be revealed after the submission process. The deadline to submit an abstract is 15 January 2019.
JOURNAL OF MATERIALS SCIENCE
Participants will be invited to submit their contributions as regular manuscripts (no conference proceedings papers, review articles are encouraged) under the category « Special IIB2019 Issue » to Journal of Materials Science (created by Robert W. Cahn in 1966, Editor-in-Chief Barry C. Carter, impact factor 2.993, https://link.springer.com/journal/10853). Guest Editor(s): to be designed soon.
