COSIRES 2020

COSIRES 2020 : The 15th conference of COmputer Simulation of IRradiation Effects in Solids

June 29 to July 3 2020, Porquerolles, France

We are very pleased to announce the 15th conference on computer simulation of radiation effects in solids. Held every two years, COSIRES is a leading venue for presenting and discussing recent advances in the computational investigation of materials phenomena caused or influenced by all forms of irradiation. A field that connects cascade formation to irradiation creep is necessarily at the forefront of computational and experimental materials science, often driving innovation in advanced techniques across a vast range of time and length scales.

Abstract submission is on the "easychair" online platform. Please limit abstracts to 200 words.

Abstracts can be uploaded in pdf format- abstract example

Submission Deadline : 14th February 2020

Organiser Response : 28th February 2020

Early Registration : 4th May 2020

*** Due to the limited number of total participants, early applications are encouraged! ***


Conference topics include, but are not limited to:

New methods coupling experiment to simulation or simulation to experiment

Long timescale simulations of post irradiation annealing

Coarse graining techniques for microstructure representation

Simulation of electronic excitations induced by irradiation

Cascade formation and evolution

Irradiation of heterogeneous and amorphous materials

Irradiation effects on the brittle to ductile transition in metals and semiconductors

Irradiation effects in multicomponent alloys
