 Stimulated by the high demand for new materials with enhanced mechanical, chemical and physical properties, metallic glasses and composites containing glassy or metastable phases are currently at the cutting edge of metal research. These materials exhibit unique technological properties which often surpass those of conventional functional and structural materials and are therefore attractive for “high-end” applications. Today, improvement in the processing is essential for them to gain more market.The symposium aims to promote international scientific and technological exchanges on the recent progress in synthesis, processing, properties and applications of these exceptional materials. It covers topics (but is not limited to) such as rapid solidification, powder metallurgy, bulk metallic glasses, thin films and coatings, thermoplastic forming, glass-forming ability, thermal stability, structure, and physical, chemical, thermal, magnetic, mechanical and biological properties. Contributions from both theoretical and experimental points of view are welcome. Interaction between academia and industry is highly encouraged.
The C13 Symposium Proceedings will be published in Revue de Métallurgie (www.revue-metallurgie.org (http://www NULL.revue-metallurgie NULL.org/)), a centennial journal created in 1904 by H. Le Chatelier and thus representative of the great tradition of French Metallurgy. The journal, indexed in the current contents (Web of Science), informs you through high-quality and peer-reviewed research papers in the field of ferrous and non-ferrous alloys (iron alloys, nickel alloys, steels, titanium, zirconium, etc.). The publishing language in this journal is English or French. All papers will undergo the usual review procedures. Only manuscripts with enough scientific quality and novelty, and consistent with the standards of the Journal will be published.
