Registration Open Now: 18th International ESAFORM Conference on Material Forming

28.10.2014

ESAFORM is a European association with the mission to stimulate applied and fundamental research in the field of material forming. Its annual conference is used to achieve one of the association’s main goals: Spreading scientific and technological information related to material forming within academic and industrial communities.

Date: 15th – 17th April 2015
Place: Graz University of Technology, Austria

The 18th International ESAFORM Conference on Material Forming (ESAFORM 2015) is jointly organised by Graz University of Technology and VIRTUAL VEHICLE Research Center. It will be held for the first time in Austria and will take place at Graz University of Technology.

The conference will cover numerous disciplines related to material forming including metals, polymers, ceramics and composites. Innovative applications of materials, for example in medicine, are also welcome.

All traditional and new forming processes are considered relevant. All in all, the ESAFORM 2015 will bring together specialists from academia and industry all around the world, to discuss the latest technological innovations and recent achievements in material forming.

Conference Format

The conference is structured into several mini-symposia, following the format of parallel sessions. Plenary lectures will be given by outstanding researchers from both scientific and industrial fields followed by oral presentations by the participants, who submitted a paper for the conference.

The mini-symposia will cover topics, such as:
• Formability of metallic and composite materials,
• Forging and rolling and other forming processes
• Continuum constitutive modelling and scale transition modelling
• Additive manufacturing and non-conventional processes
• Structures, properties and processing of polymers (and biomass based materials)
• Innovative joining by forming technologies
• Intelligent computation in forming processes

Pre-Conference Workshop -
„Advanced Physical Simulation for Metals Forming“

The two days course will take place from 13th to 14th of April 2015. Topics will include thermo-mechanical simulation of industrial processes at laboratory scale (e.g. rolling or friction stir processing) as well as the description of the flow and its correlation with the microstructure evolution.

During the first day, experiments will be carried out at a physical simulator (Gleeble®3800). The second day will be used to interpret the flow data obtained and to carry out FEM simulation of deformed samples.

Conference Chairs
Prof. Christof Sommitsch, Graz University of Technology
Dr. Aldo Ofenheimer, VIRTUAL VEHICLE

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
