ICOTOM-18 will foster the fundamental understanding of the basic processes underlying the formation of texture and its relation to the anisotropic properties of polycrystalline materials. With EBSD and other techniques providing textural information from the nano to the macro scale, our understanding of the links between the local orientation and texture evolution and material properties continues to grow. ICOTOM-18 will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent progress in texture and anisotropy research.

Materials scientists and geoscientists as well as engineers are invited to come together in the scientific exchange at ICOTOM-18 to further the fundamental understanding of texture and anisotropy with an aim to convert that basic scientific understanding into real-world engineering solutions. With the unique geology of the region we particularly invite geoscientists to participate and contribute to the texture (or fabric) conversation.
