It is our pleasure to make the first announcement for the 31st International Conference of Intergranular and Interface Boundaries (IIB 2022), to be held in Beijing, China, from June 20th to 24th, 2022.
The important role of interfaces in determining the properties of materials, and in microstructural evolution during manufacture and in-service operation, is increasingly appreciated by a wide range of researchers in different fields as a consequence of advances in theory, instrumentation, software and computational resources allowing investigation of interfaces at the atomic scale.
GOAL AND AUDIENCE
The IIB Conferences represent a unique international forum bringing together experts and young researchers investigating different aspects of interfaces to meet, to share new advances in their research in different fields of interface science, and to exchange views regarding the understanding, control, and design of interfaces in various materials.
IIB 2022 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 submission campaign will be announced soon.
More information soon!
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
