The Symposium focuses on the processing of metallic materials by methods of severe plastic deformation (SPD) in order to obtain ultrafine-grained (UFG) microstructures. On the one hand emphasis is laid on new developments in severe plastic deformation techniques, including new processing methods, advances in modeling and simulation of the severe plastic deformation processes, prediction of the microstructural evolution during SPD-processing and industrial up-scaling strategies. On the other hand, the correlation between SPD-processing parameters and the resulting materials properties are in focus of this Symposium. It will cover the interaction between the obtained microstructure and the mechanical properties in UFG materials, strategies to enhance the microstructural stability, new developments of tailoring/grading and functionalization of materials by SPD-processing as well as principal investigations on the deformation mechanisms in UFG materials related to SPD-processing.Selected papers presented at this symposium will be published in a special issue of the Journal “Advanced Engineering Materials” (Wiley-VCH). Authors will be contacted after the conference for submission of full papers. The papers will be refereed using the journal standard reviewing procedures.
