Save event

The annual EBSD meeting has been a fixed event on the RMS calendar for over 20 years and we regularly welcome top academics from the UK, European and global research community. 

The meeting will not only highlight recent technological advances in the field of EBSD and related instrumentation, but also showcase their applications to real-world problems in both the science and engineering disciplines.

EBSD is routinely used within Earth and planetary sciences, engineering, materials science and physics, with an emerging interest from the biological community. The University of Plymouth also successfully engages with enterprise, with many local, national and international companies seeking EBSD expertise in the design/development of new materials and products. EBSD 2018 aims to bring together specialists from across this broad-reaching speciality; academics, business, technicians and students alike.


Registration is now open. Please register your place via the RMS EBSD meeting website.
