The present volume contains 175 selected papers from the 4th International Conference on Ultrafine-Grained and Nano-structured Materials (UFGNSM2013). This is the fourth biennial conference in UFGNSM series, jointly organized by Center of Excellence for High Performance Materials (CEHPM), University of Tehran, IRAN and University of Patras, GREECE. This volume presents a selection of papers submitted to the conference from universities and industries. These papers cover various aspects of ultrafine grained and nanostructured materials including: novel approaches to produce ultrafine grained and nanostructured materials and related properties, nanoparticles processing, nanostructure control, nanocomposites, nanocoatings and thin films, ultrafine grains and nanostructures characterization, simulation and modeling, and energy applications.
The 17th edition of International Conference on Nonferrous Metals (ICNFM-2013), was organized by Corporate Monitor in association with Alcircle and MECON at Ranchi, India during 5-6th July 2013, with an aim to purposefully discuss the above issues and projecting the latest developments in the field on nonferrous mineral exploration, metal extraction and processing. The papers received from national and international organizations covered topics from geological understanding, insights on mine reserves, metal extraction, metal purification, productivity enhancement, as well as long term marketing strategies to environmental issues. This conference offered a platform to students, researchers, industry professionals, and plant operators for close interactions and exchange of ideas, and scope of working together to alleviate the bottle necks and promote better industrial output.
