Aim of the Conference

The International CALPHAD Conference has been held regularly since 1973, and provides those who are interested in thermodynamics, kinetics and related subjects of phase diagrams with friendly atmosphere of discussion of their works.

Topics include:
Ab initio (first-principles) Predictions
Thermodynamic Modeling
Computational Materials Science
CALPHAD Assessments and Database Development
Diffusion and Phase Transformation Modeling
Software Development
Experimental Thermodynamics and Kinetics
Applications of CALPHAD Methodology (e.g. meso-scale and process modeling)
Nano-materials, Functional Materials, Meta-materials, and others
Applications of CALPHAD Methodology to Societal Issues (e.g. energy)

According to CALPHAD tradition, there will be no parallel sessions, and the program includes both oral and poster presentations each day. Computer demonstrations from participants are also welcome and encouraged.
