Selected Papers will be additionally published in International Journal with high ISI factor. Deadline for the submission of the manuscript is 15th April 2013. Manuscripts should be submitted in e-form using both MS Word and PDF formats.
The scope of this IFHTSE international conference is broadly within a domain of new challenges, recent progress and emerging ideas in the fields of advanced heat treatment and surface engineering technology.
Many of the most significant developments that have occurred in technological general knowledge in recent years, together with economy globalization, have introduced new challenges into the field of heat treatment and surface engineering.
This three-days conference will provide a forum within which engineers, scientists, researchers and production managers can review and discuss new challenges, recent progress and emerging topics in the fields of advanced heat treatment and surface engineering technology. It should also offer an opportunity to examine the present state and perspectives in theory and practice of heat treatment and surface engineering of metals. Various R&D efforts related to heat treatment and surface engineering will be covered at the conference. The conference will also cover most of physical metallurgy aspects of heat treatment and surface engineering with emphasis on alloy development, microstructure/property relationships and engineering performance. In addition, new engineering processes, mathematical modelling, virtual processing, intelligent systems, modern equipment and management of heat treatment and surface engineering will be considered at the conference.
Those interested in alloy properties, manufacturing processes, modelling and simulation, equipment and management, especially in the fields of advanced heat treatment and surface engineering, will find the conference of great benefit.
From 55 abstracts received from 17 countries, 32 abstracts have been selected for oral presentation and 23 for posters.
In addition, a free of charge workshop "LQD- Global Data Base" led by Imre Felde (Faculty of Informatics, Obuda University, Budapest, Hungary) will be organised on 11 June 2013.
Papers for this event should address in particular, but not exclusively, the following:
In addition to the contributed papers, the Conference Programme Committee will invite papers by distinguished researchers in key areas of heat treatment and surface engineering.
