Symposium M

Novel sintering processes in Materials Science

Scope of the Symposium

To gather researchers and students pursuing research on sintering. Emphasis will be put on the application of non-conventional sintering techniques, such as electric-field assisted pressureless sintering, spark plasma sintering, flash sintering, flash spark plasma sintering, microwave sintering, laser sintering, two-step sintering, and cold sintering.

Abstracts will be solicited in (but not limited to) the following areas

  • Mechanisms, microstructural evolution, in situ measurements, nanostructured x microstructure materials, modeling and simulation, scaling from the lab up.
  • Spark plasma sintering; flash spark plasma sintering
  • Electric field-assisted sintering; flash sintering
  • Microwave sintering
  • Laser sintering
  • Fast firing sintering
  • Two-step sintering
  • Cold sintering
