Conference UFGNM

Open school-conference of CIS countries “Ultrafine-grained and nanostructured materials (UFGNM)” - international scientific forum, held since 2008 onece in two years by the Institute for Metals Superplasticity Problems of Russian Academy of Sciences and Baskir State University. The main goal of the conference is to discuss fundamental and applied problems of fabrication and processing of ultrafine-grained and nanostructured materials, the results of studying their structure and properties, as well as the results and prospects of practical application.

Each time, UFGNM conference was attended by 140 to 220 researchers from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Estonia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, as well as from Germany, the USA and Japan. The majority of the participants are young scientists. During the conference, one or two sessions are devoted to oral reports of young scientists. Best young scientists with oral and poster talks are awarded for the best reports.

Conference proceedings were published in the form of special or thematic issues of such scientific journals as "Perspective materials", "Russian Physics Journal", "Letters on materials" and IOP Conference Series.

The open school-conference of the CIS countries "Ultrafine-grained and nanostructured materials" provides opportunities for establishing close scientific ties, which grow into long-term scientific cooperation.
