MMT2012 is the 7th conference held at Ariel University Center, Israel and devoted to materials technologies. The nain topics of the conference are:

  • Metal technologies

    • Optimization of materials and processes in ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys, welding and other processing technologies;

    • Structure and properties of metal and slag melts: analyses and predictions of the phase diagrams, modeling of the thermodynamic and kinetic properties;

    • Simulation of the thermodynamic and kinetics of metallurgical reactions, phase interaction. 

  • Development of new materials;

    • Phase transformation, diffusion, physical and mechanical properties;

    • Design and production of materials with required structure and properties;

  • Study of properties of various materials. Techniques, ideas, generalizations.

  • Special technological solutions;

  • Coatings and surface modification

    • Micro-arc oxidation (plasma electrolytic oxidaion) technology;
