Invited Lecturers:

Thomas Antretter (Montanuniversität Leoben, Austria)

6 lectures on: Martensitic transformation, development of microstructures, kinetics based on thermodynamics, comparison with experiments and still existing solution concepts.

Franz Dieter Fischer (Montanuniversität Leoben, Austria)

5 lectures on: Introduction to thermodynamics of materials. Irreversible processes, thermodynamic potential, Gibbs energy, dissipation, dissipation function, extremal principles, configurational forces. Workshop with participants.

Klaus Hackl (Ruhr Universität Bochum, Germany)

6 lectures on: Formulation of variational concepts based on extremal principles, application to inelastic materials, application to the evolution of microstructures.

Ralf Mueller (Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, Germany)

6 lectures on: Configurational Forces and Phase Field modelling, application to multiphysics problems in materials and to defects (as cracks, point defects, and dislocations), discussion in relation to evolution concepts.

Jiri Svoboda (Institute of Physics of Materials, Brno, Czech Republic)

6 lectures on: Thermodynamic Extremal Principle (TEP), application of TEP to diffusive and growth processes in continuous and in discrete form, discussion in relation to still existing evolution concepts.
