1st announcement of the International Conference on Materials, Processing and Product Engineering (MPPE 2015)

2.-5- November 2015 in Leoben, Austria

Scope of the conference

The International Conference on Materials, Processing and Product Engineering MPPE 2015 focuses on the core issues of industrial production chains, covering topics of

  • Materials synthesis and processing;
  • Development and characterisation of materials;
  • Design of components incorporating the materials and their processing;
  • Behaviour of materials and components during Service.

The scientific and technological goal is to present the state of the art of theoretical, experimental and numerical techniques (and their combination) that are capable of improving the competitiveness of modern production facilities.
