Instrumented indentation testing has rapidly developed over the last twenty years for the assessment of mechanical properties at high spatial resolution. This conference will showcase state-of-the-art developments in instrumentation, data interpretation and modeling of the nanoindentation response of bulk materials and coatings. A particular focus of the meeting will be the combination of nanoindentation and high resolution imaging techniques to elucidate deformation mechanisms.
