About the Author
Michael J. Zehetbauer, Chairman, NanoSPD2, born in 1951 in Austria. Since 1997 he is Professor at the Institute of Materials Physics, University of Vienna, and Head of the Section "Nanocrystalline Materials". From the late 1980's he has been author of several fundamental papers on large strain work hardening of metals establishing stages IV and V of plastic deformation. His main scientific fields are experimental investigations and modelling of strengthening processes in metals and polymers, with specials emphasis on the conditions under wich nanostructures are formed during plastic deformation. A member of several committees of the Austrian Physical Society and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde, he recently was co-opted to the International Steering Committee on the Severe Plastic Deformation.
Ruslan Z. Valiev, Co-Chairman, NanoSPD2, born in 1949 in Russia. Since 1995, he is Professor and Scientific Director of the Institute of Physics of Advanced Materials, Ufa State Aviation Technical University in Ufa, Russia. In the early 1990's Prof. Valiev and his co-workers have pioneered the production of ultrafine-grained and nanostructured materials and alloys by the techniques of severe plastic deformation (SPD). His main research interests comprise studies of strength and ductility, and the modelling of superplasticity of SPD produced nanomaterials. He has acted as co-organizer of several international SPD meetings, among these the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Investigations and Applications of SPD which was held 1999 in Moscow and initiated the actual NanoSPD conference series. Ruslan Valiev is a member of several international professional committees, among these the International Steering Committee on SPD, the International Committee on Superplasticity, Orlando, USA, and the International Committee for Nanostructured Materials, Sendai, Japan.
