PROCESSING OF ADVANCED MATERIALS
KMM-NoE Integrated Post-Graduate School (IPGS), Doctoral Path, Third Intensive Session; Imperial College, London, May 21 – June 1, 2007

ANNOUNCEMENT
About KMM-NoE
The Network of Excellence "Knowledge-based multicomponent materials for durable and safe performance" (KMM-NoE) has been established in order to create a coherent pan-European structure of key academic and research institutions, SMEs and large industry partners in the field of knowledge-based multicomponent materials designed for highly demanding loading and environmental conditions. Such materials include functionally graded materials, metal-ceramic composites and intermetallics. The KMM-NoE brings together a critical mass of 36 organisations with high level expertise in the field of knowledge-based multicomponent materials from across 10 countries in Europe.

The main objectives of KMM-NoE are:
  to contribute to creation of the ERA in the field of knowledge-based multi-component materials oriented towards advanced industrial applications, to network, strengthen and consolidate the fragmented and dispersed RTD potential in this area and apply instruments assuring long-lasting and progressive integration of the core group in the form of a new legal entity cooperating with external research and industrial networks, to continuously enhance the research and technological skills of the Network to gain and hold the leading world position in this area.



Integrated Post-Graduate School The Integrated Post-Graduate School is one of the important tools of the KMM-NoE for
spreading of excellence in the KMM domain. It is composed of the Doctoral Path and the Skill-Path offering intensive sessions on advanced topics in the KMM domain. The Doctoral Path is targeted at doctoral students seeking the PhD degree in their home institutions who wish to enhance their knowledge of the topics covered by the KMM-NoE. The IPGS will thus strengthen the doctoral studies held at the KMM-NoE participating institutions by offering advanced courses in the KMM-domain. After the KMM-NoE has reached a sufficient degree of integration the KMM-NoE Label for the doctoral degree may be attributed. Self-contained courses of the Doctoral Path will be grouped into intensive sessions lasting two weeks. An intensive session will consist of up to 3 advanced courses of 15-30 hours each. The Third Intensive Session of Integrated Post-Graduate School (Doctoral Path) on “Processing of advanced materials” will be held in London, England, on May 21 – June 1, 2007 and will consist of 3 courses of 20 hours each. The Session will be organized by Imperial College London, Department of Materials. The lecture room will be located in the Royal School of Mines building, in the main campus of Imperial College in South Kensington (www.imperial.ac.uk/contactsgettinghere) The Session will be organized by Dr A. R. Boccaccini and Dr J. A. Roether (Session Secretary). Contact : e-mail: j.roether@imperial.ac.uk , tel.:+44 207 5946731, fax: +44 207 5946757.

The courses are targeted primarily (but not exclusively) at advanced doctoral students and predoctoral researchers, but will be self-contained, starting from an elementary level. The attendees will be provided with the lecture notes at the beginning of the course. The participants are expected to arrive on Sunday May 20 and depart on Friday June 1 in the afternoon (or Saturday June 2). As a rule, six hours of lectures (of 45 minutes) will be given daily followed by the consultations/tutorials. The general schedule comprises the following: in the morning 09:00-10:30 h lectures, 10:30-11:00 h coffee break, 11:00-12:30 h lectures, 12:30-14:00 h lunch break, in the afternoon 14:00-15:30 h lectures, 15:45-16:45 h tutorials.

The exceptions are: Mon. 21.05. 09.00-09-30 h: registration, lectures shifted by 30 min., no tutorials; Fri. 1.06: no lectures in the afternoon. Full financial support by the IPGS (travel expenses and accommodation) is foreseen for a limited number of attendees from the KMM-NoE Participant Institutions. Depending on financial considerations, partial financial support (accommodation) may be also available for students from the KMM External Research Network (ERN). However, there is no registration fee and all admitted participants will be provided, free of charge, with the lecture notes, and coffee. Reduced-rate accommodation in hotel double rooms will be arranged by the organizers in the South Kensington area close to Imperial College (the cost will be approx. £650 for 2 weeks, TBC). This sum includes lodging and breakfast from 20.05 to 02.06 for a total of 13 nights. Typical cost for lunch is £5 in the Imperial College common room. The total number of participants is limited to about 40 .
