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.



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:



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



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
