||The International Symposium on Superalloys, which has been held once every four years since 1968, is sponsored by the Seven Springs International Symposium Committee in cooperation with The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), the TMS High Temperature Alloys Committee, and ASM International. The purpose is to provide a forum for researchers, producers, and users to present the most recent technical information on a class of high-strength, high-temperature alloys commonly known as superalloys. Each symposium is dedicated to a distinguished honoree to mark their outstanding contributions to the field of superalloys. Awards will be made for best paper and best poster, in both full and student categories. Superalloys 2016 will assess current trends in customer requirements and the latest response of the superalloys community to the challenges faced by them.
