AToMS 2018 - 1st Annual Thermodynamics of Materials Symposium

26 Jun 2018

Organised by IOM3 Materials Chemistry Committee

A new conference on Phase Equilibria and Thermodynamics for the UK

The 1st Annual Thermodynamics of Materials Symposium (AToMS2018) will take place on the 26 June 2018 hosted at the University of Sheffield. This one day meeting will bring together people working in the areas of phase equilibria and thermodynamics and associated fields.

The aims of the meeting are to discuss current research (both experimental and computational) and to develop a UK network of scholars and practitioners with an interest in phase equilibria and thermodynamics.

Oral and poster contributions from participants are invited.


These will include, but are not limited to:

  • Experimental phase equilibria, thermodynamics and kinetics
  • Thermodynamic and diffusion modelling
  • Ab-initio (first-principles) calculations
  • CALPHAD assessments and database development
  • Applications of phase equilibria and thermodynamics in materials science, chemistry and geology
