Aim of the Conference

CALPHAD has been held regularly since 1973 and provides an opportunity for the worldwide phase diagram community to meet, present, and discuss their work. Topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Ab initio (first-principles) calculations
  • Metallic, Non-metallic, Nano systems
  • Amorphous materials
  • Functional materials
  • Software and database development
  • Industrial applications
  • Experiments that need thermodynamic analysis

Additionally, special attention is being given to multi-scale simulations for prediction of materials properties.

According to CALPHAD tradition, there will be no parallel sessions and each day will include both oral and poster (130 cm high x 90 cm wide) presentations. Computer demonstrations and tabletop displays from participants are also welcome.

Call for Abstracts

Contributions to the CALPHAD meeting must be in English and should report original work.
A template for abstracts is available here. The abstract must be in either MSWORD format or PDF format and must be submitted by e-mail to with the file name starting with the last name of the presenting author.
