The Eighth International Conference on Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF8) will be held in Dresden, Germany, from 27 to 29 June 2017.

This series of events aims to provide a discussion forum for all those interested in both fundamental aspects and practical applications of low cycle fatigue and similar subjects.

A special emphasis lies in the design, manufacturing and operation of equipments and structures. We hope to resume the successful series of previous conferences (1979, Stuttgart; 1987, Munich; 1992, Berlin; 1998, Garmisch-Partenkirchen; 2003, 2008 Berlin, 2013 Aachen) and intend to bringing together experts in several fields with a common interest in low cycle fatigue, facilitating and encouraging mutual exchange of knowledge and experience; providing a forum for the presentation and the discussion of recent advances; helping to identify research and development needs in the future.
