ELKEME team members, Dr. G. Pantazopoulos, Dr. S. Papaefthymiou, Mr. A. Toulfatzis, Mrs. Bouzouni and Mr. E. Gavalas participated to the 6th Pan-Hellenic Conference on Metallic Materials, which was held in Ioannina, December 7-9, 2016. They contributed to the presentation of various papers in oral and poster sessions of the Conference. Specific areas of interest were including Physical Metallurgy-Heat Treatment, Modeling-Simulation, Mechanical Behaviour, Failure Analysis, Corrosion and Wear, etc. More specifically, the contributed papers are shown below:
