IXth INTERNATIONAL SAMSONOV CONFERENCE “MATERIALS SCIENCE OF REFRACTORY COMPOUNDS” (MSRC-2024)


May 27-30, 2024, Kyiv, Ukraine

General Information

Frantsevich Institute for Problems of Materials Science, National Technical University «Igor Sikorsky Кyiv Polytechnic Institute», and Frantsevich Materials Research Society and regularly organize a conference on the materials science of refractory compounds and materials. The forum bears the name of an outstanding scientist Grigoryi V. Samsonov, one of the founders of materials science of advanced refractory carbides, nitrides, borides, silicides, etc. He has fundamental works in the field of chemical bonding of refractory compounds, which formed the basis of the scientific concept of creating composite materials based on refractory compounds with the necessary properties. The fundamental research he carried out on the physical chemistry of refractory compounds became the basis for the production and use of about 500 such substances on an industrial scale.

Refractory materials operate under extreme conditions such as high temperatures, and pressures, aggressive media and are widely used in many industrial fields. The conference will focus on discussing the advances in fundamental understanding and application of refractory materials.

We invite you to submit your experimental or theoretical works covering the following topic areas in the field of refractory compounds:

Topic Areas

Synthesis and Properties

Low-Dimensional Materials and Nanostructures

Ceramics and Composites

Films and Coatings

In the MSRC-2024, we provide a special memorial session dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the birth of academician Valeriy Skorokhod, distinguished scientist in the field of Materials Science. He has developed fundamentals of the rheological theory of sintering (continual), based upon the phenomenological concept of the generalized-viscous flow of porous bodies. Nowadays, continual theory is the most popular powerful instrument for modeling of sintering-related processes worldwide, including sintering of refractory compounds.

The Skorokhod Session will include presentations of experienced and young scientists in the field of Advanced Processing Technologies of Refractory Materials.

We are looking forward to seeing you at this Conference!
