INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE MAGNETISM AND METALLURGY

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE MAGNETISM AND METALLURGY

7th International Conference Magnetism and Metallurgy - June 13th to 15th, 2016 - Rome - ITALY

Scope of the Conference

The series of International Conferences, Magnetism and Metallurgy was established in 2004 by the Institute of Metal Forming at the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg. The conferences 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 took place in Freiberg and Ghent respectively and were organized in cooperation of the Institute of Metal Forming in Freiberg with the Department of Material Science and Engineering at Ghent University. The conference 2014 was organized by the Cardiff School of Engineering. The 7th International Conference Magnetism and Metallurgy WMM’16 will take place in Rome and organized by the CSM. The WMM16 will be co-sponsored by “Associazione Italiana Metallurgia” and “UK Magnetic Society”.
The aim of this series of International Conferences on Magnetism and Metallurgy is to bring together scientists from universities and research groups working on the development of magnetic materials, as well as electrical engineers from universities and industry, who are engaged in applications of magnetic materials.
The WMM`16 will provide a general overview of status, trends and recent developments in the field of “Magnetism and Magnetic Materials and their Application”.
The 7th International Conference Magnetism and Metallurgy will, like the previous conferences, treat all aspects: techniques for producing the materials, technological aspects, development of microstructure and relation to the properties, modelling the evolution of microstructure and properties, measurements of the characteristic properties, developments in the field of application of magnetic materials, aspects of design. Invited papers will be presented by international experts on magnetism and magnetic materials to cover the proposed topics of the 7th International Conference WMM16. In addition a restricted number of exhibits and poster presentations will be included in the program.
We expect the same kind of audience as at the previous conferences. More than 120 participants from 27 countries were present at the 6th International Conference WMM14, in Cardiff. In addition to delegates from the academic world and from research institutions, participants from producers of magnetic materials attended the meeting.
Relevant steel companies were present including Wälzholz, Cogent, ThyssenKrupp Electrical Steel GmbH, US-Steel, ArcelorMittal, Tempel Steel, JFE, Nippon Steel and Sumitomo, Voestalpine, Magnequench, China Steel Corporation, AK Steel, Auerhammer, Cube Steel, Aperam, Daido and Tata Steel.
At the WMM14 conference, contributions from 27 invited speakers from 19 countries as well as the 24 posters were presented.
The organizers of the WMM16 hope that the 7th International Conference WMM’16 in Rome 2016 will cover like the previous conferences the latest developments and demonstrate the progress in the field of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials and their Application.


Topics of the WMM’16
