Description: This indispensable work is the fifth in a series of international conferences devoted to advanced materials and processing. The conferences, which are held every three years, are jointly sponsored by the Chinese Society for Metals (CSM), the Japan Institute of Metals (JIM), the Korean Institute of Metals and Materials (KIM), and the Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS), and organized by them in rotation. The purpose of this international conference, PRICM, is to provide a forum for the exchange of technical and scientific information, which is always of great benefit to researchers, manufacuturers and end-users.

Recrystallization and grain growth, together with phase transformations such as precipitation, are the fundamental processes of microstructural evolution which take place during the thermomechanical processing of engineering materials. They are of major scientific interest and are of great importance in a wide range of industrial applications. One of the main goals of this two-volume set is to show how to cover the entire set of reactions governing recrystallization and grain growth during industrial processing – termed through process modelling.

Description: Recent years have witnessed an astonishing growth in research on materials science. Exotic new materials, innovative processing techniques and challenging computational methods make the pursuit of research in this field increasingly interesting and rewarding. Considering as it does, the significance of shock-wave phenomena in the rapidly changing materials science scene, this collection of papers will undoubtedly foster further advanced research into the allied research areas of explosive, shock-wave and hypervelocity phenomena in materials.

Description: The II International Materials Symposium is a scientific forum which discusses advances in the science and technology of materials, and is organized by the Portuguese Materials Society. The II International Materials Symposium followed a series of bi-annual national and international conferences that began 20 years ago and has became, since 2001, an international forum where scientists, engineers and technologists working in the fields of Materials Science and Engineering discuss their recent results and exchange ideas and information.

These proceedings, PROGRESS IN ADVANCED MATERIALS AND PROCESSES, include selected papers which were presented at the Fifth Yugoslav Materials Research Society Conference (Yu-MRS Meeting), held in Herceg Novi, Yugoslavia, September 15-19th, 2003. The previous four conferences were also held there, and the Yugoslav Materials Research Society was formed as a non-governmental, non-profit, scientific association, whose main goals and tasks are to encourage creativity in materials science and engineering, to achieve the harmonic coordination of these fields in Serbia and Montenegro, and to link these researches to analogous activities carried out worldwide; in order to incorporate them into international – even global - programs. Materials science and engineering involve the acquisition of knowledge concerning the synthesis and processing of materials, their composition and structure, properties and behaviour, characteristics and potential, and their application in devices, machines, consumer units and other finished products. Our economic prosperity, quality of life and hopes for a healthy environment are closely connected with improvements in existing products and the development of new ones together with their associated processing technologies.
