Aims and scope

The purpose of this conference is to foster exchanges between academic and industrial scientists on processes inducing beneficial residual stresses, as well as their effects, with an emphasis on traditional shot peening. While this is not an exhaustive list, processes like deep rolling, laser peening, ultrasonic peening, cavitation peening, flapper peening and needle peening fit within the conference’s scope. In addition, talks dealing with fundamental or applied aspects, modeling, experimental methods, fatigue life, forming and industrial applications are sought so as to generate fruitful discussions between world experts in order to address current and forthcoming issues.


The conference will feature 4 keynote speakers given by world experts whose mandate will be to deliver pedagogical talks dealing with both fundamental and applied aspects so as to reach the largest audience possible.


The organizing committee aims at receiving at least 75 high quality talks (18 minutes + 7 minutes question) propositions. Poster sessions might also be arranged, based on the number of proposal and the available time slots.


The conference papers will be regrouped into a conference proceedings booklet, referenced by an ISBN number.

Best student presentation award

Students (undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral fellows) are encouraged to present their works at the conference. A jury will evaluate oral presentations made by students and will distribute three ‘best presentation awards’ during the banquet.


An exhibition of commercial products related to the conference topics will also be held in parallel.

Local aerospace companies site visits

Montréal being an aerospace hub, a number of local aerospace companies have agreed to offer site visits as part of the conference. So far, Bell Helicopter Textron, Bombardier Aerospace, Pratt and Whitney Canada as well as L3-Communications MAS have agreed to open their doors to the conference’s attendees. The site visits will be included in the registration fee.


The conference banquet will feature a 3h cruise in bateau-mouche on the St-Lawrence river (includes gastronomical dinner + jazz concert).
