Abstract:

The 9th International Conference on Intergranular and Interphase Boundaries in Materials iib98 held on 6-9 July 1998 in Prague, Czech Republic, represents a successful continuation of the series of this Conference starting by the first meeting in Saint Etienne, France, in 1975. Following the scope of the preceding meetings, this Conference was focused on atomic level modeling of interfaces, structural and chemical characterization of internal interfaces, their thermodynamic, kinetic, mechanical, electric, magnetic behavior and high-Tc superconductivity, and application of present knowledge for design of polycrystalline materials with improved properties. More than 200 scientists from 27 countries of four continents actively participated in the meeting. Traditionally, a special symposium on an actual topic has been organized as a part of the Conference During iib98, the attention was paid to Non-Equilibrium Segregation in Irradiated Materials. A particular session was devoted to presentation of the results obtained during the International Cooperation in Science and Technology COST. The contributions presented at the iib98 are published in this volume. Nearly 200 papers that cover all above mentioned topics were presented as invited talks, oral contributions and - in the vast majority - posters. These papers bring new results in the study of interfaces and their properties obtained in the last years, and represent the present state of the art in this field. We are grateful to all referees for their assistance in preparation of this volume.
