Symposia, Workshops, Seminars

New achievements and challenges in self-propagating high-temperature synthesis

April 16-17th, 2012 Cagliari, Italy
Hotel Regina Margherita, Viale Regina Margherita 44

Organizing Committee: Giacomo Cao, Roberto Orrù, Alexander Rogachev, Alexander Sytschev

Sponsor: University of Cagliari (Italy) through the project DINISAR granted by MIUR (Italy) and coordinated by Giacomo Cao

Workshop program

The Workshop program includes key-note lectures of leading Italian and Russian scientists in the field of combustion synthesis of materials, as well as oral presentation of young scientists and PhD-students. Topics of the presentations involves synthesis of ceramic, ceramic-metal and intermetallic materials, mechanical activation, time-resolved experimental methods, synthesis of materials in microgravity and others.

Key-note lectures from leading experts in human space exploration will be also presented.
