Scope of Symposium

The focus will be process innovation, development and modeling with particular focus on material and part performance related to advanced manufacturing of light materials. The light materials covered are Al, Ti, Mg-alloys and Ti- or Al-based intermetallics. Ad¬vanced processing will cover processes primarily relevant to the automotive, aerospace end 3C sectors to generate both sheet metal components and structural parts made by casting, powder metallurgical means (including reactive processing) as well as assemblies by joining. Particularly important is the performance of the material at the component level and the effects of the processing route and the micro structural changes of the material.


The proceedings for symposium T will be published as an electronic supplement to Materials & Design. Submission is to be made electronically using the Elsevier EES system no later than 19 July 2009.

Information on how to submitt, register and use the EES system can be found at Elsevier's website.

When submitting it is important that you as the author select Special Issue: ICMAT2009 when you reach the "Article Type" step in the submission process.

General guidelines for the manuscript preparation can be found at Elsevier's website. Please note that there is a page limitation and the papers should in the print be less than 5 pages (Typically around 2500 words plus tables and figures).
