Aims and scope of the conference
The eleventh annual ESAFORM conference covers a multitude of disciplines related to material forming. These materials include metals, polymers, ceramics and composites. Other materials, for example, biomaterials are also of conference interest. All traditional and new forming processes are relevant. It is expected that a variety of techniques including theoretical analyses, experimental testing and numerical simulations will be used. A good combination of fundamental approaches and applied science would be particularly welcomed. Traditionally, this conference is organised around a series of mini-symposia.
