RQ14, the Fourteenth International Conference on “Rapidly Quenched and Metastable Materials” will be the next in the triennial series of RQ meetings. Previous RQ conferences were held in Brela, 1970; Boston, 1975; Brighton, 1978; Sendai, 1981; Würzburg, 1984; Montreal, 1987; Stockholm, 1990; Sendai, 1993; Bratislava, 1996; Bangalore, 1999; Oxford, 2002; Jeju Island, 2005 and Dresden, 2008. The series primarily arose to satisfy the requirements of the rapidly quenched metals community, which grew explosively in the 1970s, and has expanded to researchers working with metastable materials, quasicrystals, nanometer scale materials and more recently bulk metallic glasses.
RQ14 will provide a comprehensive overview of fundamental aspects, processing and applications in this evolving field of material science. The sessions will include plenary and keynote lectures from internationally distinguished scientists as well as of oral and poster contributions. An exhibition of materials, equipment and services is also planned to promote interaction between scientists and industry.
