The 11th International Workshop on Subsecond Thermophysics
The 11th International Workshop on Subsecond Thermophysics (IWSSTP) took place on June 21-24, 2016. For the first time in the long history of the IWSSTPs, this Workshop was held in Poland. The organization of this prestigious scientific meeting put the Foundry Research Institute in charge and by the decision of the International Organizing Committee it took place in Krakow, one of the most important scientific, historical, and cultural centers of Poland.
As previous well-established workshops, the 11th IWSSTP was focused on experimental, theoretical, simulation, and applied aspects of the thermophysical behavior of matter in the millisecond to picosecond time regimes. Among others, it includes rapid resistive or inductive heating (volume), pulsed laser heating (surface), levitation techniques.
The 11th IWSSTP emphasized the developments of experimental techniques in the area of subsecond thermophysics to measure the materials thermophysical properties at high temperatures and to study the behavior of matter under conditions near and far from thermodynamic equilibrium.
The Workshop provided a forum for the exchange of knowledge, experience and ideas on the latest developments and trends in the field of subsecond thermophysics as well as to as to promote cooperation between academia, research institutions and industry.
In total 59 participants from 12 countries took part in the 11th IWSSTP, including Austria (4), Canada (1), France (1), Germany (16), Japan (1), Kazakhstan (2), Poland (23), Russia (3), Serbia (1), Spain (1), Switzerland (1) and USA (5). It is important to highlight that 10 PhD students had opportunity to present and to discuss their result with world-class expects.
The 3-day Program of the 11th IWSSTP was divided into 10 sessions. Totally 48 contributions were presented, including plenary lectures (2), invited lectures (5), oral presentations (26) and posters (13).
Besides plenary lectures and posters, 33 oral presentations (invited and regular) were given in thematic sessions dedicated to Measurement Techniques (9), Modelling and Theory (4), Processing (8) and Thermophysical Properties (12).
By the decision of the International Organizing Committee, the next 12th IWSSTP will be held in Cologne, Germany in 2019. It will be organized by the Institute of Materials Physics in Space at German Aerospace Center (DLR) and it will be chaired by Dr. Jürgen Brillo.
Dr. Brillo has been also elected as a new member of the International Organizing Committee.
