The Microbeam Analysis Society is organizing a 
topical workshop on EBSD,  May 20-21-22, 2008, at 
the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The first day will be an all day tutorial for 
beginners, on the basics of EBSD techniques and 
application. The instructors will be Andrew Deal 
(General Electric Global Research Center) and 
Joseph Michael (Sandia National Laboratories). 
Specific topics to be addressed include: Forming, 
collecting, and indexing EBSD patterns in the 
SEM; Using EBSD to measure microtexture in 
materials; Identification of crystalline phases 
using EBSD and EDX; Application of EBSD to 
Material Science and Geological problems. Later 
in the afternoon there will be an "Ask the 
experts" session, with experienced practitioners 
of EBSD to answer questions about its practical 
use: J.R. Michael, L.N. Brewer, S.I. Wright 
(EDAX), S. Sitzman (Oxford), A. Deal.

The next two days of the workshop will consist of 
invited and contributed talks, with general 
categories including: In situ measurements in 
EBSD; EBSD in three dimensions; Frontiers in EBSD 
technique development; Materials Science and 
Engineering applications; Geological applications.

Confirmed speakers and titles of their talks are:
David Prior, University of Liverpool - "The 
beauty of triclinics: advantages and challenges 
of EBSD studies of plagioclase feldspar";
Hans-Rudolf Wenk, University of California at 
Berkeley - "EBSD for texture analysis: 
Quantification, limitations and comparison with 
other techniques";
Donna Whitney, University of Minnesota - 
"Applications of EBSD to metamorphic petrology: 
the tectonics of metamorphic crystallization";
Aimo Winkelmann, MPI für Mikrostrukturphysik - 
"Recent Advances in Dynamical Simulations of 
Gregory Rohrer, Carnegie Mellon University - 
"Determining Five-Parameter Grain Boundary 
Character Distributions From Orientation Mapping 
in Three Dimensions";
David Rowenhurst, Naval Research Laboratory - 
"Crystallographic and Morphological Analysis by 
Combining EBSD and Serial Sectioning".

Thanks to support from NSF and others, there will 
be a significant amount of funds for student 

There will be limited enrollment, so early 
registration is urged. Online registration will 
commence January 15 at
