General Information
The Conference represents a continuation of International Conferences on Powder Metallurgy organized in the former Czecho-Slovakia at regular intervals since 1962. It directly follows the International P.M. Conferences, held in Stará Lesná in 1996, 2002 and in Piešťany in 1999.
DF PM 2005 will take place in the year when IMR SAS, Košice celebrates the 50th jubilee of the founding of the Institute.
The conference precedes the EPMA-organised - EURO PM2005 congress to be held in Prague, Czech Republic, on 3-5 October 2005. There is a direct fast train connection between Poprad [nearest main railway station] and Prague and between the airport of Kosice and Prague by plane. Local transport from Stara Lesna to Poprad and Kosice will be assured.

The established orientation of DFPM international conferences is fundamentals of material properties. The aim of the Conference is to promote information exchange between scientists, researchers and industrial engineers with the aim of improving the properties, lifetime and reliability of structural PM materials in service applications. Furthermore a closer international cooperation in the field of deformation and fracture behaviour of these materials will be promoted.

- formation and microstructure development of sintered materials
- nanomaterials in PM area
- mechanical properties (static, dynamic, fatigue, high-temperature, …)
- failure, fracture toughness, durability and reliability
- gradient and multilayered materials (coatings)
- relation between microstructure, properties and fracture mechanisms
- application of PM materials under complex stress and exploitation conditions
Materials of Interest
Mainly ferrous and non-ferrous metals, intermetallics, superalloys, composites and other PM materials
