AToMS 2019 is organised by IOM Communications Ltd on behalf of the Materials Chemistry Committee of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining
This meeting follows on from the successful AToMS 2018 held at the University of Sheffield. AToMS 2019 will be held at the University of Birmingham.
The study of phase equilibria and thermodynamics is by no means a new branch of Materials Science but it has been quite some time since it was treated as a subject area in its own right. Research work in this important field continues but now more often as part of much larger research programmes. Consequently, those working in the field are disconnected from one another with little communication between research groups working essentially in the same field. The main aim of this new series of symposia is to bring together all those with an interest in phase equilibria and thermodynamics (both experimental and computational), and all associated fields of study in order to create a UK community and a forum to discuss research. By encouraging interaction between researchers with these common interests, it is expected that the community will grow and once again become an important force on the International Stage.
Although it is intended that this one-day conference will be of interest to the established researcher, it is aimed particularly at those at the beginning of their research career, giving them an early opportunity to experience presenting at a conference. However, the meeting is by no means exclusive to academia, with those working in industry being strongly encouraged to attend.
