Solidification and Gravity Conference, Miskolc-Lillafüred, SG 18

Dear Colleagues ,


The Organising Committee is pleased to invite you to the

Seventh International Conference on Solidification and Gravity (SG’18)

which will be held in Miskolc – Lillafüred Hungary,

from September 3 to 6, 2018.


The scope of the scientific meeting will be similar to that of the previously organised Conferences on Solidification and Gravity in 1991, 1995, 1999, 2004, 2008 and 2013 . This Conference is aimed to attract all those having interest in investigation and simulation of different type of solidification processes and both micro- and macro-gravity effects. In the framework of the conference a MICAST meeting (Microstructure Formation in Casting of Technical Alloys under Diffusive and Magnetically Controlled Convective Conditions) will be organised  on 6 of September 2018.

The conference will consist of invited and contributed oral presentations, and poster sessions. Conference language is English. The proceedings will be available at the conference.
