NCM14 - 14th International Conference on the Structure of Non-Crystalline Materials

 

Following the previous very successful edition of the conference, held in Halifax, Canada, the 14th International Conference on the Structure of Non-Crystalline Materials (NCM14) will be held 3-8 November 2019 in Kobe, Japan.

 

Scope

The NCM Conference is devoted to investigation of the structure and dynamics of non-crystalline materials. Main subjects of the Conference will include, but are not limited, to the following:

 

Topics

BulletStructural modeling and theoretical aspects of glasses and melts

 

BulletShort- and medium-range order in glasses and melts (spectroscopy, diffraction, new experimental structural approaches)

 

BulletNucleation and crystallization processes

 

BulletNano-crystalline materials

 

BulletSol-gels and heterogeneous systems

 

BulletNanostructural and microstructural features

 

BulletStructural properties of glass surfaces

 

BulletStructural evolution under forcing conditions: high pressure, irradiation, photo-structural changes, polyamorphism and reversibility windows; glass to melt transformations

 

BulletStructure/property relationships

 

BulletDynamical properties

 

BulletRelaxation phenomena

 

Materials

BulletInorganic glasses such as oxides, chalcogenides, oxynitride glasses and melts

 

BulletMetallic glasses

 

BulletGeological glasses, polymer glasses , bioglasses

 

BulletNew glass-forming systems

 

BulletAmorphous systems, quasicrystals and others

 

BulletNanostructures in glasses and crystals

 

Experimental and numerical methods

BulletScattering methods (x-ray, neutron, light)

 

BulletSolid-state spectroscopic methods (x-ray absorption spectroscopy, NMR, vibrational spectroscopy methods, ion scattering spectroscopy, and others)

 

BulletExperiments at extreme conditions (new possibilities using Large Scale Facilities)

 

BulletInfluence of materials preparation (thermal history, crystal amorphization, etc.)

 

BulletMicroscopy (electron, near-field, surface investigations and so forth)

 

BulletModeling including structural modeling, atomistic modeling, and ab initio approaches
