Grants for 3rd International Workshop on Physics Based Material Models and Experimental Observations Cesme/Turkey 2-4 June

In 2012 and 2013 we organized very successful Workshops on
"Physics-based material models and experimental observations" funded
by the European Union's Enlargement programme. We cordially invite you to
submit an abstract to the 3rd International Workshop on Physics Based
Material Models and Experimental Observations
to be held on 2-4 June
2014 in Cesme-Izmir/Turkey.

The objective of the workshop, funded by European Commission
and co-organized by Joint Research Centre, University of Oxford, Middle East
Technical University and Max Planck Institute, is to discuss the present status
of physics based constitutive modelling of materials and associated experimental
methods. The workshop will include oral and poster presentations by the
participants and lectures by the following keynote speakers:

*Prof. Alan Cocks (University of Oxford, UK): Creep at the micro and macro scales,

*Prof. Gerhard Dehm (Max-Planck Institute for Iron
Research, Germany):
Static and dynamic mechanical studies of micron-sized Cu
performed at variable temperature

*Prof. Vikram Deshpande (University of Cambridge,
Climb enabled discrete dislocation plasticity,

*Prof. Norman Fleck (University of Cambridge, UK): A critical review of strain gradient theory,

*Prof. Marc Geers (Eindhoven University of
Technology, The Netherlands): 
Homogenizing metal plasticity: on the role of interfaces
& dislocation climb

*Dr. Wolfgang Hoffelner (RWH Consult GmbH,
Design Codes vs. Physics-based models: complementary or

*Prof. Sandra Korte-Kerzel (RWTH Aachen, Germany):  Plasticity in hard materials – testing at the microscale
and high temperatures

*Prof. Daniel Rittel (Technion Israel Institute of
Technology, Israel):
Microstructural aspects of dynamic shear localisation in

*Dr. Maxime Sauzay (CEA Saclay, France): Micromechanical modelling of the mechanical behaviour of
martensitic steels and comparison with experimental data,

*Prof. Cynthia A. Volkert,(Georg-August-Universitat
Göttingen, Germany):
Dislocation nucleation-limited deformation in Au
nanowires: experiments and simple models.

Please note that: (i) there is no registration fee
for the workshop (although a small registration fee will be charged from late
registrations in case the number of participants exceeds that allowed by the
workshop budget); (ii) there will be travel grants for participants from
the target countries* (citizen or place of work) of European Commission's
Enlargement & Integration Action.

Applications for the grants should be sent to: . For
