Scientific Organiser: Ali Gholinia, University of Manchester
A two day meeting presenting both state-of-the-art and emerging Electron Back Scatter Diffraction techniques, highlighting the application of EBSD and related techniques in industry for quality and product development and discussing its application to geoscience.
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 Manchester 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 two day exhibition alongside this Meeting.

Prof Angus Wilkinson
University of Oxford
Angus Wilkinson is a Professor of Materials at the University of Oxford, where he leads the Oxford Micromechanics Group (http://users.ox.ac.uk/~ajw/) whose research focuses on fundamental aspects of materials deformation. He has a longstanding interest in the use SEM techniques to image and quantify material microstructures. His research centres mostly on structural metallic systems (Ti-, Ni- alloys and steels), but he also has interests in defects in semiconductors and deformation processes in minerals.
A particular research highlight includes development of the HR-EBSD method for mapping elastic strain and dislocation density at high spatial resolution but he has also worked on electron channelling contrast imaging (ECCI) of lattice defects. Most recently he has been exploring the use of multivariate statistics for analysis of EBSD datasets.
