Scientific Organiser: Angus Wilkinson, University of Oxford
The annual EBSD meeting offers an opportunity for users and developers of EBSD and related techniques to meet and discuss their work. The main conference will run over two days with a series of technical talks, a lively poster session, an exhibition and ‘techno-bite’ updates on innovations from the EBSD systems suppliers. Similar to 2016, there will be the option of joining an afternoon of tutorial sessions, offering Beginner and Advanced streams, ahead of the conference.
The meeting has been running for over twenty years and we regularly welcome top academics from the UK, European and global research community. This meeting will include talks that focus not only on technique development but also include applications to real engineering problems and scientific questions, as well as approaches to combine data obtained using EBSD with other techniques. EBSD is widely used to develop further understanding in the fields of earth & planetary science, materials science, engineering and physics.
We hope you'll take the opportunity to join us in Oxford and spark a lively debate on current approaches and future developments in this exciting and evolving research field.
Registration is now Open
On Monday 3 April there will be a tutorial workshop with two parallel streams.
One stream is for beginners and the other stream for advanced, when you register online you will need to select which stream you want to attend. Numbers to the workshop will be limited. The EBSD workshop is only available for those attending the two day EBSD meeting, it is not possible to register for the workshop alone.
The workshop will be taking place at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3AN.

Prof Felix Hofmann
University of Oxford
Felix is an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford. He completed his D.Phil. in the same department in 2011 under the supervision of Prof. Alexander Korsunsky. Following this he spent a year as a Postdoctoral Research Associate working in the group of Prof. Keith Nelson at MIT. He returned to Oxford to take up his present faculty position in January 2013. His research concentrates on understanding the link between atomic scale crystal defects and macroscopic material properties in engineering materials using a wide range of microscopy and modelling techniques. Felix is a member of the Solid Mechanics and Materials Engineering group in the Department of Engineering Science and also a college lecturer at Trinity College.
Dr Natasha Stephen
Natasha is a Lecturer in Advanced Analysis (Earth & Planetary Sciences) within the School of Geography, Earth & Environmental Sciences at Plymouth University, and assists with the management & development of Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre; the university’s flagship, multidisciplinary analytical suite. She completed her PhD at Imperial College London & the Natural History Museum London in 2014, focusing on the geology & surface mineralogy of Mars, and moved to Plymouth University straight afterwards. Natasha’s research focuses primarily on the use of meteorites to ground-truth spacecraft data at Mars (including Mars rovers and orbiters) as well as asteroids (Vesta, Itokawa etc.), by using various non-destructive analytical techniques. Natasha manages the Plymouth Planets research group, is an avid public speaker, heavily engaged in outreach activities, and an active member of the Meteoritical Society & Royal Astronomical Society.
Dr McLean Echlin
UC Santa Barbara
McLean is a research scientist in the Materials Department at University California Santa Barbara. He received his graduate degrees from the Materials Science Engineering department at the University of Michigan working on statistical approaches for modeling fracture toughness in steels. His recent work focusing on ultrashort pulse laser-materials interactions has led to the development of tomography techniques, such as the TriBeam microscope, for the acquisition of large multimodal 3-D datasets. Tomographic EBSD data has been critical for understanding the failure mechanisms in structural materials, such as nickel base superalloys, and for improving thermoelectric performance in thermoelectric materials. He also has interest in the merging of imaging modalities, such as measurements of strain and microstructure, to determine structure-property relations.
