High-entropy alloy has become an exciting and vibrant field of materials science since the concept was proposed by Professor Jien-Wei Yeh. Symposia, meetings and workshops on topics of high-entropy alloys are being held in many countries, and a rapid increase in the numbers of scientific journal publications and citations is evident. This design concept allows compositions beyond the scope of traditional alloys, offering unprecedented properties, challenges and opportunities for a wide range of structural and functional applications. These new materials are of great interest from both scientific and technological points of view.
The first International Conference on High-Entropy Materials will be hosted by the incubating institution of high-entropy alloys – National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan. This conference will gather research groups around the world to present the latest development in high-entropy alloys and related materials, or “High-Entropy Materials” (HEMs), including high-entropy alloys, refractory high-entropy alloys, high-entropy superalloys, high-entropy oxides/ nitrides, high-entropy metallic glasses… etc. The conference aims to promote global research on HEMs and accelerate their practical applications. It also offers a platform for networking, collaboration and exchange of information in the community.
Scientists, engineers, other professionals and students who are interested in the fundamental science and engineering development of metallic alloys are very welcomed to attend the conference.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Materials design
- Physical metallurgy
- Processing development
- Structure characterization
- Mechanical, physical, and chemical properties
- Surface and structural stability
- Simulation and modeling
