Singapore, June 2 - 7, 2019


International Conference on
Computer Coupling of Phase Diagrams and Thermochemistry


2 - 7 June 2019



Aim of the conference

The International CALPHAD Conference was first held in 1973. Since then, it provides to scientists and students with an interest in thermodynamics of materials an opportunity to meet, present and discuss their work in a friendly atmosphere.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Ab-initio (first-principles) Predictions
  • Thermodynamic Modeling
  • CALPHAD Assessments and Database Development
  • Modeling of Diffusion and Phase Transformations
  • Software Development
  • Mathematics in thermodynamics and thermodynamic and kinetic modeling
  • Experimental Phase Equilibria, Thermodynamics and Kinetics
  • CALPHAD Applications in Materials Design, Production, Use, Recycling, Disposal
  • CALPHAD Applications in industrial processes including energy production, joining and soldering
  • CALPHAD Applications in Chemistry, Physics, Geology, Biology, and Marine and Offshore

As with previous conferences, it will be a single-track conference with oral sessions, poster presentations, software demonstrations, and social activities.

Scientific program

Scientific program of CALPHAD XLVIII.

The design of industrial processes requires reliable thermodynamic data. CALPHAD (Computer Coupling of Phase Diagrams and Thermochemistry) aims to promote computational thermodynamics through development of models to represent thermodynamic properties for various phases which permit prediction of properties of multicomponent systems from those of binary and ternary subsystems, critical assessment of data and their incorporation into self-consistent databases, development of software to optimize and derive thermodynamic parameters and the development and use of databanks for calculations to improve understanding of various industrial and technological processes. This work is disseminated through the CALPHAD journal and its annual conference. Contributions of high quality in these and related fields, especially the fields of first-principles calculations, experimental measurements of thermochemical and phase equilibrium data, phase transformations, and the process and materials designs that the CALPHAD works are based on or used for, are welcome.

All CALPHAD XLVIII Sponsors are acknowledged with thanks.
