An intensive two-day (April 3-4, 2017), invitation-only workshop on magnesium will focus on critical scientific, engineering, and processing challenges for implementing Mg alloys into lightweight structural systems.
The event is organized in partnership with the Materials in Extreme Dynamics Environments (MEDE) consortium, a collaborative research alliance between Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.), California Institute of Technology (U.S.), Rutgers University (New Jersey, U.S.), University of Delaware (U.S.), and the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (Maryland, U.S.). It will be held in Baltimore, Maryland.
The workshop will be divided into four half-day tracks focusing on: Processing, Experiments, Modeling & Simulations, and Design, and will feature multiple talks in each track followed by panel discussions comprised of the speakers and led by an invited prominent expert in each track. All invited speakers are key researchers representing approximately ten of the major global Mg research groups, including from Australia, Germany, Japan, Korea, and the U.S.
This is an invitation-only event. Interested parties should email Katie Vaught, firstname.lastname@example.org. All requests will be reviewed and approved by the steering committee and invitations sent by mid-February.
The Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute is a top-tier destination for research in the fields of materials and structures, multi-scale materials modeling and design, impact biomechanics, hypervelocity impact, and planetary impact.
