International Symposium on
Metals and alloys have influenced human life so profoundly that without them the modern world would be inconceivable and could not function successfully.
The study of metallurgy is the oldest branch of physical science − over millennia, it has evolved to become a highly sophisticated research field that influences almost all the sectors of industry.
To maintain this strategic industrial strength, it is imperative that the scientific and industrial communities continue to make new metallurgical discoveries. For breakthrough product developments where limited reference data are available, a massive number of compositional ranges need screening prior to selecting the interesting chemistries. Therefore, combinatorial methodologies significantly accelerate the pace of material discovery and optimisation, in contrast to the traditional, slow trial-and-error approach.
In order to exchange knowledge in this field, Flamac and OCAS join forces and organise the International symposium on
