The 2014 Meeting

Scientific Organiser: Ben Britton, Imperial College London

Location: Charles Darwin House, 12 Roger Street, London WC1N 2JU, UK

The annual EBSD meeting offers an opportunity for users and developers of EBSD and related techniques to meet and discuss their work, with a two day series of technical talks and a lively poster session. 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 engineering, materials science and earth sciences. With our meeting being hosted in London this year, we hope you'll take the opportunity to join us and spark a lively debate on current approaches and future developments in this exciting and evolving research field. There will be a one day exhibition on Monday 31 March.
