Workshop on Micromechanics



Oxford, 20-22 September 2010.

This meeting, organised jointly with the Erich Schmid Institute, University of Leoben, focussed on technique developments and applications in the field of micron-scale mechanical testing.

Like first meeting in the series, held in Leoben, July 2009, it was linked to the FEMaS-CA European Fusion Materials network.

The meeting concentrated on new "work in progress" and discussions centred around the substantial poster sessions and "hands on" practical workshops that  formed the core of the activities. Several keynote lectures from invited speakers  opened and closed the meeting.

The meeting was low cost, so as to encourage participation from active research students and postdocs.

Accommodation wasbe provided at St Edmund Hall, one of the historic colleges of Oxford, and lectures, poster sessions and workshops were held in Oxford University Materials and Engineering Departments.
