Phase Equilibria: Materials for the Future

25 Jun 2012

Organised by IOM Communications on behalf of the Materials Chemistry Committee of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.

A Satellite Event of the IOM3 Materials Congress 2012

This APDIC WRRS is primarily concerned with the practical use of phase diagrams for industry and commerce, also teaching the subject for that purpose. The Seminar is applicable to a very wide range of materials, not only with metals and alloys but also ceramics, slags, salts, semiconductors, superconductors, glass, nuclear materials and polymers. The following areas will be highlighted with presentations by key speakers:

  • Gas Turbines
  • Nuclear Safety
  • Li ion Batteries
  • Cement
  • Phase Diagram Applications
  • Calculations and Databases
  • Experimental Techniques
  • Ab-Initio Approaches


Participants are welcome to make poster presentations. Further details.

 

The UK organiser of this WRRS is the Materials Chemistry Committee of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3).

 

Online registration is now open via the Materials Congress 2012 Microsite.

The fee to attend this day is £105+VAT for IOM3 Members and £140.00+VAT for non-member.   Discounted rates are available for Students - £75+VAT for IOM3 members and £95+VAT for non-members
