This volume contains the Proceedings (64 selected refereed papers) of the 6th Japanese-Mediterranean Workshop on Applied Electromagnetic Engineering for Magnetic Superconducting and Nanomaterials (JAPMED’6), organized in Bucharest, Romania, during July 27-29th 2009. This Workshop represented a landmark in the development of materials, manufacturing and electrical engineering; providing a forum for specialists from the universities, research centers and industries of many countries to establish links, share knowledge and experience and encourage cross-fertilization of new ideas and developments in design, analysis, novel-material utilization and optimisation techniques in the areas of applied electromagnetics. Also covered was the manufacturing of advanced materials from the macro-, to the nano-scale and their industrial application in modern technologies involving nanotechnology, electricity/electronics, superconductivity, electromagnetic engineering, transportation, bioengineering, energy and the environment.

The 200 peer-reviewed articles in this “Nanomaterials by Severe Plastic Deformation” special collection are a convincing demonstration of the relevance of bulk ultrafine grained and nanostructured materials, produced by severe plastic deformation, to a wide range of researchers and engineers., The total number of articles in this edition, larger than that in the 2008 edition, shows that this community is, in fact, growing. The coverage includes all aspects of NanoSPD: Principles of SPD Processing, Microstructural Evolution and Grain Refinement, Mechanical Properties of SPD Materials, Functional and other Properties of SPD Materials, Innovation and Applications.
