MSIT Winter School

MSIT Winter Schools comprise lectures given by the MSIT members and invited experts on Phase diagrams, Classical and Computational Thermodynamics, and Crystallography and related applicational topics.

   3rd MSIT Winter School on

Materials Chemistry

3 - 6 March 2019

Ringberg Castle, Germany

organised by:

Dr. Günter Effenberg / MSI, Materials Science International GmbH, Germany
Prof. Andrew Watson / Coventry University, United Kingdom
Dr. Frank Stein, Dr. Martin Palm / Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung GmbH, Germany

The Winter School was held on the 3rd-6th of March, 2019, in parallel with the 33rd MSIT Meeting on Heterogeneous Equilibria, in the glorious setting of Schloss Ringberg in Bavaria. A total of 52 people attending the both meetings with the Winter School having 28 participants.
The format of the Winter School, which combined theory and practice of the evaluation of phase equilibria and thermodynamics, leading to the thermodynamic modelling of a real binary system has proved to be extremely popular. Starting with the basic theory of thermodynamics, phase diagrams and crystallography, students then learned how measurements were made and how these are then used, after critical evaluation, in thermodynamic modelling.The Winter School lasted for three full days but most of the students stayed for the whole week to join in the evaluation work, which has been the staple of the MSIT for over 33 years.
