Conference on deformation and fracture in PM materials announced

March 11, 2014

The International Conference on Deformation and Fracture in PM Materials (DF PM 2014) will be held in Academia Congress Center, Stará Lesná, High Tatras, Slovakia, October 26-29, 2014. The conference represents a continuation of the conferences on PM organised in the former Czechoslovakia at regular intervals since 1962.


The Academia Congress Center is the venue for 

DF PM 2014

The established orientation of the DFPM international conferences is on fundamentals of material properties. The aim of the conference is to promote information exchange between scientists, researchers and industrial engineers with the aim of improving the properties, lifetime and reliability of PM materials. Furthermore, a closer international cooperation in the field of deformation and fracture behaviour of these materials will be promoted.

The main topics covered at the conference include:

  • Microstructure, physical properties, failure, fracture micromechanism
  • Application of PM materials under complex stress and exploitation conditions
  • Modelling
  • Advanced PM technologies and materials

Call for papers

The conference includes oral and poster presentations. Presented contributions after the peer review will be published in the journal Powder Metallurgy Progress. The deadline for submitting abstracts is March 31, 2014. Authors will be notified of acceptance by April 15.
