High Temperature Materials
14–18 September 2009, Davis, California, USA
The High Temperature Materials Chemistry Conference–XIII (HTMC-XIII) will be the next in a series of conferences that are held every three years, the last occurring in Vienna, Austria. The conference will be held 14–18 September 2008 at the University of California–Davis, USA.
The conference’s goal will be to bring together people from chemistry, geology, and materials science who are working with high-temperature phenomena in solid and liquid materials. Selected conference topics include high-temperature thermodynamic measurements, the interplay of theory and modeling with experiment in high-temperature materials, earth and planetary materials at high pressure and temperature, materials for aerospace applications, materials for nuclear energy applications, transport, ionic and electronic conduction, densification, grain boundaries, interfaces and surfaces, and melts, glasses, and amorphous materials.
Contributions to the meeting are being solicited as talks and posters. The scientific committee will review the submitted abstracts and decide which will be accepted for which type of presentation. The conference language, and thus the language of the abstracts, will be English.
The meeting is being jointly organized by UC–Davis’s Nanomaterials in the Environment, Agriculture, and Technology Organized Research Unit and the Peter A. Rock Thermochemistry Laboratory and is sponsored by IUPAC and several partners from industry. The meeting chair is Alexandra Navrotsky. Confirmed speakers include Masaki Azuma, Ricardo Castro, Yingwei Fei, Susana Fries, Jonathan Stebbins, and Sharon Webb. The international advisory committee members are Masaki Akaogi, Giovanni Balducci, Ricardo Castro, Yingwei Fei, Sophie Guillemet-Fritsch, Adolf Mikula, Hans Seifert, and Sharon Webb. The national organizing committee members are Steve Amundson, Sangtae Kim, Charles Lesher, Sabyasachi Sen.
