Spring is coming, so do Plasticité the annual gathering of french speaking researchers on materials plasticity. Plasticité 2018 will be held in Nancy, April 9th-11th, organized by the Institut Jean Lamour, the Université de Lorraine and the CNRS. I'll present work on the Plasticity in Laves phases by atomistic approaches and experiments.

On March 19th, 2018, I'll be returning to the LEM3 in Metz to discuss further collaborations. Invited by Dr. S. Berbenni, I'll meet members of the group MAPLI from the IMPACT departement.


From the 1st of January, 2018, I'm glad to start leading the new group focused on atomistic simulations of the IMM at the RWTH Aachen University in Germany.IMM

On December 6th, 2017, I'll give a seminar at the Institute of Materials Simulation (WW8) of Prof. Dr. Michael Zaiser of the FAU in Fürth.

From the 27th to the 29th of September, 2017, I'm glad to visit the Institute Jean Lamour (IJL) in Nancy and the LEM3 in Metz to present my work and discuss further collaborations. The metallurgists of these two laboratories, gathered in a "LABoratory of EXcellence Design of Alloy Metals for low-mAss Structures" (Labex DAMAS), have been awarded by the french gouvernement through a special financial support of 7.8 M € over 8 years.
