Description: This special issue of Defect and Diffusion Forum contains selected refereed papers which were presented at the 7th International Conference on Diffusion in Solids and Liquids (DSL-2011) held on the 26 to 30th June 2011 at the Hilton Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal. The goal of the conference was to provide a unique opportunity to exchange information, to present the latest results and review burning issues in contemporary diffusion research. Young scientists were especially encouraged to attend the conference and to establish international links with established scientists.

Description: The International Conference on Diffusion in Materials (DIMAT) is the benchmark conference series for diffusion in solids. DIMAT 2011 was organized by the University of Bourgogne in association with CNRS, Dijon (France). The conference showcased new results concerning theoretical tools as well as applied research approaches. Diffusion processes affect all types of materials: nanomaterials, materials for energy, metallurgy, glasses and ceramics, but each requires its own numerical tools.

The present topical volume presents a representative cross-section of some recent advances made in the area of diffusion. The range of topics covered is very large, and, this reflects the enormous breadth of the topic of diffusion. The areas covered include diffusion in intermetallics, phenomenological diffusion theory, diffusional creep, kinetics of steel-making, diffusion in thin films, precipitation, diffusional phase transformations, atomistic diffusion simulations, epitaxial growth and diffusion in porous media.
