Workshop announcement: 'Modelling and Simulation of Superalloys'

We would like to cordially invite you to attend the workshop 'Modelling and Simulation of Superalloys' at ICAMS, Ruhr Universität Bochum, Germany on March 29-31, 2017 with hands-on tutorials on March 27+28. The registration deadline is March 1st.

This workshop will give an overview of recent progress in modelling and simulation of materials for superalloys, with a focus on single crystal Ni-base and Co-base alloys. Topics will include electronic structure methods, atomistic simulations, microstructure modelling and modelling of micro-structural evolution, solidification and process simulation as well as the modelling of phase stability and thermodynamics.
