The 18th DYMAT Technical Meeting will cover theoretical, experimental & numerical approaches to the dynamic mechanical behaviour of bulk nanomaterials and metallic glasses. The presentations will provide a complete description of the material processes and of the microstructural and conventional mechanical properties of the studied materials. Keynote oral presentations have been selected by the scientific committee. The call for posters papers will end on June 27, 2008. The oral and poster presentations will be published as a DYMAT proceedings.
