Recrystallisation and phase transformation phenomena in metals; current research and industrial application - A seminar honouring Bevis Hutchinson

Bevis conference

Date: November 9–10, 2021
Place: Stockholm, Sweden

The purpose of the seminar is to highlight Professor Bevis Hutchinson's scientific contributions in the area of steel and aluminium development. The seminar will provide an opportunity to gain access to his worldwide network of colleagues and learn about the most recent advances in research within this field. It will also be an excellent opportunity to thank him for his research efforts, as he is considering to retire.

We are pleased to present the following program:
