D2008 Logo   Dislocations 2008: Int'l Conference on Fundamentals of Plastic Deformation  


Local Info




Conference Goal

The purpose of the Dislocations conference series is to bring together a diverse community that is interested in the fundamentals of plastic deformation. Researchers in this community may be developing new experimental techniques, performing computer simulations, or developing new theoretical models.

The scope of the conference includes fundamental research on dislocations in all types of materials and their role in plasticity.

Conference Style

We will stay together for 5 days as a single group. There will be no parallel sessions. We will have organized discussion periods everyday after the technical presentations. Plenary speakers will be chosen by D2008 executive committee. Invited speakers will be selected from submitted abstracts. Chair of the poster session will give a preview for the posters to be held in the evenings. All talks, abstracts and proceeding papers are in English. Go to the Program section to see details of technical presentations (e.g. time limit). There will be several openings in the schedule for group outings and sightseeing.
