First Circular

The meetings are scheduled to gather French, German, Belgian, Dutch, Polish colleagues. The meeting “Texture and Anisotropy” 2015 is organized under the auspices of the Laboratory of Excellence LABEX DAMAS (Prof. Laszlo Toth, Director).

The main theme of the meeting will be part of the theme of LABEX: textures and microstructures as a tool for new materials with improved performance to meet many environmental challenges such as weight reduction, the economy of raw materials and the extension of the lifespan of parts. In particular, functional materials offer promising perspectives in this optimization strategy.

The days will be held in Metz, from Thursday, March 19, 2015 to Saturday, March 21, 2015 chaired by Yudong Zhang, Dr. Habil. and Research Engineer at LEM3 Laboratory, UMR CNRS 7239), which was acclaimed “chairwoman”, following a proposal of our colleague Francis Wagner, at the last meeting of Leuven (B ). The draft agenda is as follows:

Thursday, March 19, from 18h.

Visit of the historic center of the city of Metz followed by our traditional “get together dinner”.
It will start at 07:30 PM, at restaurant “Les Relais D’Alsace”, 38, rue Clercs 57000 Metz.
One room is reserved for the participants to the symposium “Texture and Anisotropy”.

Friday, March 20, 2015

Oral and poster contributions from participants.

Saturday, March 21, 2015 (morning).

Similar to the Texture and Anisotropy meeting of Caen in 2012, we reiterate the successful animation of a half day school to initiate or improve the use of the comprehensive system combined analysis or MAUD (Materials Analysis Using diffraction) by Daniel Chateigner.

The announcement of the school can be found on the website of the “Texture and Anisotropy” Committee of the SF2M:

Note: The number of participants to the MAUD training is limited to 20; please report your interest upon registration!
