International Conference on Creep and Fracture of Engineering Materials and Structures

Unified platform for Indian Structural Integrity

28 July – 2 Aug 2024

Indian Institute of Science Bangalore, India.

The International Conference on Creep and Fracture of Engineering Materials and Structures, also known as CREEP conference, follows the long-standing tradition of the Swansea conference that were initiated by Professor Brian Wilshire and held in Swansea from 1981 to 1993 on a triennial basis. Later, the CREEP conferences were held in London (UK – 1995), Irvine (USA – 1997), Tsukuba (Japan – 1999), again in Swansea (UK – 2001), Pittsburgh (USA – 2005), Bayreuth (Germany – 2008), Kyoto (Japan – 2012), Toulouse (France – 2015), Saint Petersburg (Russia – 2017), and Erlangen (Germany, – 2021 in online mode).

All CREEP conferences have traditionally provided an excellent platform for researchers working in the area of high-temperature mechanical behavior of materials to share ideas, discuss the emerging trends, and engage in long-term collaborations. Although the conference has moved away from the single-session format, it still provides ample time during each session and in-between sessions for intensive interactions. The sixteenth edition of the CREEP conference (CREEP 2024) will be organized at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore (India) in the J N Tata Auditorium (located in the National Science Seminar Complex). This is the first time the conference is being organized in India, and it coincides with the 80th anniversary celebration of the establishment of the Department of Materials Engineering (previously known as Department of Metallurgy) of IISc.

CREEP 2024 will cover a wide variety of topics related to high-temperature deformation, such as creep, superplasticity, high-temperature fatigue and fracture, high-temperature processing, high-temperature testing and characterization, computational aspects, size effects, and related fields, such as radiation effects, hydrogen embrittlement, etc.
