  • We invite you to submit an abstract to the Special Symposium.
  • Please feel free to submit your Abstracts online before January 31, 2018. (http://www.ecf22.rs/)
  • Please send by email your expression of interest with a tentative title of your presentation together with the name, affiliation and email address of the corresponding author and the names of co-authors before January 31, 2018 to: mdjukic@mas.bg.ac.rs (Milos Djukic, Associate Prof.) so that we could plan Symposium’s sessions.
   
  • Our aim is to bring together top scientists and researchers in the field of hydrogen embrittlement in order to present the latest achievements, current state of the art and the future research framework in understanding of hydrogen embrittlement phenomena.
  • The main objective of this Special Symposium with a round table and panel discussions is to enable an open and productive dialogue between all disciplines which study hydrogen embrittlement phenomena from any scientific or technological perspective and which in turn are being transformed by continuous advances in materials science and technology.
  • The idea is to attract top researchers in hydrogen embrittlement phenomena to participate with papers and to join the Special Symposium with a round table and panel discussions.

 

Special Symposium invited speakers:

  • Prof. Zhiliang Zhang, NTNU, Norway (confirmed)
  • Prof. Motomichi Koyama, Kyushu University, Japan (confirmed)
  • Prof. Emeritus Dan Eliezer, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel (confirmed)
  • Prof. Hiroyuki Toda, Kyushu University, Japan (confirmed)
  • Prof. Afrooz Barnoush, NTNU, Norway (confirmed)
  • Prof. Jun Song, McGill University, Canada and Prof. William Curtin, EPFL, Switzerland (confirmed)
  • Prof. Xavier Feaugas, Université de La Rochelle, France (pending)
  • Prof. Andrej Atrens, The University of Queensland, Australia (pending)
   
  • In addition, Prof. William Curtin, EPFL, Switzerland (HE Special Symposium co-chair) will give one of the plenary talks on the ECF22 conference, title: "Mechanisms of Hydrogen Embrittlement: Insights from Atomistic Studies".
   
  • Currently (12 January 2018), we have more than 30 contributors and papers that will be presented on the HE Special Symposium.
  • We'll have some top hydrogen embrittlement (HE) experts from Japan, France, China, Australia, USA, Ukraine, Russia, India, Italy, Israel, Switzerland and Norway in Belgrade.
  • More details about organization of the HE Special Symposium round table and panel discussions topics with the name of organizers and participants will be available soon on the conference website,
  • ECF22 - Plenary Lecturers and Minisymposia: http://www.ecf22.rs/x.html.
   
  • All contributions in the form of extended abstracts will be peer reviewed. Abstracts will be published in the form of ECF22 e-book and available during the registration. Full papers will be published in Procedia Structural Integrity journal by Elsevier in the form of ECF22 Proceedings.
           

 

    IMPORTANT:
  1. The deadline for the abstracts is 31 January 2018.
  2. When submitting your abstract please mention the name of Special Symposium - "Recent Advances on Hydrogen Embrittlement Understanding and Future Research Framework".
