EuroSuperalloys 2018

The 3rd European Symposium on Superalloys and their Applications

The Third European Symposium on Superalloys will take place in Oxford, United Kingdom during 9-13 September 2018. This follows the successful Eurosuperalloys meetings which took place in Germany in 2010 and France in 2014.

The conference will highlight major new initiatives and growth opportunities for both Ni-based and Co-based alloys. Emphasis will be placed on all aspects of the technology needed to put these materials to use: processing, structure/property relationships, and degradation mechanisms – both mechanical and chemical.

In addition to these topics, special attention will be given to modelling tools. These are enabling the analysis of processing, properties, behaviour, design and recycling, for the optimisation of overall life cycle approaches. Papers on novel methods for model validation and also new types of manufacturing techniques are particularly sought.

The symposium will focus on superalloys only, i.e. Ni and Co base alloys, with possible extension to metallic and intermetallic materials beyond the temperature capability of superalloys. All kinds of topics around those materials could be considered:

Alloys development
Solidification/ Processing/ Repair
In-service damage
Mechanical and rheological behaviour
Microstructure sensitive modeling approaches
Metallic and intermetallic materials beyond superalloys

Paper submission

Abstract submission is now closed and the peer review has now been completed (please refer to Program).

The intention is to publish papers selected for presentation at the conference in an archival journal. Authors will be required to produce a final manuscript suitable for refereeing by March 2018. The final papers will be published in September 2018.

Poster submission

This guideline is ONLY for authors who have received notification of acceptance for poster publication from the organisers. Posters should be prepared in 79x114cm size and suitable for printing in portrait. A recommended template is available for download here – please use a PowerPoint format or similar.

An electronic copy of your poster in PDF format must be submitted by 27 August 2018 (a link for submission will be available on this website). The organisers will print out your poster in time for the conference.
