Recrystallization and grain growth take place during the thermal treatment of materials and as part of geological activity deep in the earth’s crust. The main objective of the Rex&GG Conference series is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and information on the state-of-the art in the field. Rex&GG V will include oral and poster presentations, as well as exhibition. Topics will include, but are not limited to, recrystallization and grain growth in metals, ceramics, thin films, geological materials and nanostructured materials.
