The 4th International Symposium on Phase-Field Modelling in Materials Science.

July 22th - 25th 2019, Bochum (Germany)

OBJECTIVES AND TOPICS

The 4th International Symposium on Phase-Field Modelling in Materials Science (PF 19), to be held at the Ruhr-Univerität Bochum / Germany, is intended to provide an excellent forum for the growing phase-field community. We aim to cover a broad field of theoretical modelling, numerical methods and applications related to phase-transitions, moving boundary problems, pattern formation and microstructure evolution in general. Also model integration into a multi-scale, multi-physics framework are of high interest. The covered topics include:

We would like to discuss latest advancements and future directions for these approaches, hence contributions covering unpublished results or work in progress are particularly encouraged. We also highly appreciate contributions dealing with the experimental validation of models named above. We expect that a wide range of applications, from solidification to fracture, phase transformation and microstructure evolution in general, polycrystalline and multiphase materials, hybrid materials, functional, and biological materials will be covered.

Program

Available March 2019.

Workshop venue

The workshop will take place in the Conference Centre of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. It is located at the main campus below the mensa. It can be easily reached by public transport. A limited number of parking spaces is available in the nearby P9.

Travel Information

By public transport

Bochum Central Station is served by ICE, IC, EC, regional, and suburban trains at a high frequency. From there, you can reach us easily by taking the underground line U35 (CampusLinie) straight to the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB), which has its own station named after it. The U35 (direction Bochum Hustadt) runs at five-minute intervals on weekdays and takes just ten minutes to get to the university.

By car

Motorists can also easily reach the RUB via the dense network of motorways in Germany and especially in North Rhine-Westphalia. The quickest route is via the motorway junction Bochum/Witten, where the A43 and A44 meet. Simply take the exit Bochum-Querenburg, follow the signs “Ruhr-Universität” and then the (electronic) information boards.
A limited number of parking spaces is available in the nearby P9.

By plane

Four airports – Dortmund, Münster/Osnabrück, Cologne/Bonn, and Düsseldorf – are within a reasonable distance of the RUB. Düsseldorf Airport, however, is not only the largest, but also the most easily accessed: there are direct connections between the airport and Bochum’s main train station up to eight times per hour, and the journey only takes around half an hour.
