will follow six biannual conferences in this series, held in

“The Diffusion Fundamentals Conferences are held every two years. They represent a unique international forum bringing together the specialists from disciplines in different fields of materials science, chemistry, physics and engineering as well as archaeology, ecology, epidemics, ethnology, linguistics and sociology. They all are concerned with the phenomenon of random movement which is known to occur on molecular scales just as over macroscopic dimensions. Diffusion is thus among the major processes which decide over the final result of a large spectrum of phenomena. This made us suggest the question “Evolution or Degradation?“ as one of the key topics of this year’s “Diffusion Fundamentals” conference.


Diffusion Fundamentals VII will be a single-session conference based on invited lectures, extended discussion periods, and poster sessions (posters will be exposed during entire duration of the conference).


Diffusion Fundamentals VII will take place from 3 till 7 July 2017 in Moscow in the National University of Science and Technology “MISiS” (former Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys). The conference place is close to the city centre and is easy to access by train and metro from the international airports in Sheremetjevo, Vnukovo and Domodedovo.
