15th International Conference on Creep and Fracture of Engineering Materials and Structures

June 14-18, 2020

!COVID-19!: due to the current situation, CREEP 2020 will be postponed. All accepted abstract are already accepted for the new conference date. A submission of new or updated abstracts will be possible. All new information on concerning venue, date and organisational issues will be available as soon as possible.

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 15th Internati-onal Conference on Creep and Fracture of Engineering Materials and Structures from 14–18 June 2020 at the Educational Center Kloster Banz, Germany.

This conference follows the long-standing tradition of the Swansea conferences, which were initiated by Prof. Brian Wilshire and held in Swansea from 1981 to 1993 on a triennial basis. Later, the Creep conferences also took place in London, UK (1995), Irvine, USA (1997), Tsukuba, Japan (1999), again at Swansea, UK (2001), Pittsburgh, USA (2005), Bayreuth, Germany (2008), Kyoto, Japan (2012), Toulouse, France (2015) and Saint Petersburg, Russia (2017).

The objective of CREEP 2020 is to provide an opportunity for scientists and engineers to come together, share experience and knowledge in order to discuss the recent progress concer-ning creep mechanisms and modelling and to explore advanced experimental testing methods, materials and applications. The conference consists of invited lectures and contributed oral as well as poster presentations.

Kloster Banz is a former Benedictine monastery, founded in about 1070. The Banz abbey is located in beautiful Franconia, northern Bavaria, in a remote place above the valley of the river Main. As a well-known educational centre, it is an ideal place to conferences with its good infrastructure and relaxing atmos-phere. It is near the city of Bamberg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its authentic medieval appearance, which we will visit during the conference.

We are looking forward to your participation and would be delighted to meet you in Banz.

Conference chair of the CREEP 2020
