The workshop on Micromechanical properties of Hard Materials will be held on June 27th to 29th 2018 in Barcelona (Spain). This European workshop will cover all the scientific aspects concerning micromechanical properties of hard materials (heterogeneous composite materials, coatings, etc.). The meeting will promote particularly collaboration between Young researchers and will support initiatives of networking and European projects. This workshop is open to all the international scientists working on micromechanical properties as well as companies involved in this research field.

Scientific program includes invited lectures, oral communications and poster sessions as well as demonstration practical sessions. As workshops are intended to be interactive learning and/or in-depth training experiences, oral contributions will be presented in single (no parallel) sessions. This format will allow detailed discussion of the relevant issues. In addition, a lively poster session will be encouraged, aimed particularly at Young researchers who can join the workshop by low registration fees.

All accepted abstracts will be collected in a book that will be distributed to participants at the beginning of the workshop.

The oficial language of the conference is English.
