PFM2014 - The Third International Symposium on Phase-field Method 2014 was held August 26th-29th, 2014 at State College, following the First Workshop on Phase-Field Modelling in Materials Science (1999) and the Second Symposium on Phase-field Modelling in Materials Science (2009). The purpose of the conference is to bring together scientists from universities and research labs, engineers from industry, graduate students, postdocs who are actively involved in the development and applications of phase-field models or who are interested in learning phase-field modeling of microstructure evolution to review the current status and identify future directions of phase-field method.
