Mr. Sabavath Janakiram pursuing PhD in Materials Engineering in the School of Engineering Science and Technology (SEST) University of Hyderabad (UoH) has been invited to participate at the International Conference on Textures of Materials (ICOTOM-18) from November 5 to 10, 2017 being held in St George, Utah, USA.

ICOTOM is a renowned worldwide conference for gathering texture scientists and engineers for nearly 50 years. The conference has a major impact on the global study of microstructure of materials and is a vital venue for discovering, sharing and influencing the latest scientific advances in this field.

In the conference, Janakiram who is specialising on the topic titled ‘Nucleation texture and microstructure control during early recrystallization annealing of high strength automotive steels’ under the supervision of Dr. Jai Prakash Gautam presented a paper on Texture evolution during partial recrystallization annealing in high strength automotive steels.

The research paper will be published in Journal of Physics: Conference Series Materials Science and Engineering.

Janakiram’s visit was funded by Prof. Leo Kestens from University of Ghent and the National Science Foundation through conference organizers.
