Scope A thermodynamic analysis of high temperature industrial processes is essential to understanding the complex chemical equilibria involved, to improving the performance of existing processes and to developing new processes. Major advances in thermodynamic software and the development of large evaluated optimized databases have made it possible to carry out such analyses and process optimizations efficiently in terms of both time and cost. Professor Christopher Bale has devoted his entire career to the development of “FactSage” which is one of the thermodynamic software/database packages used widely in high temperature processes, and to the education of the industrial and academic communities in the applications of thermodynamic calculations to industrial high temperature processes. In this Symposium, papers are invited on applications of thermodynamic software and databases such as FactSage, HSC Chemistry, MTData, Thermo-Calc, Pandat etc. to high temperature processes. Papers on experimental thermodynamic studies are also welcome.

Contributions are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:
- Pyrometallurgical Processing fundamentals: Ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy
- Process simulation
- Refractories, Ceramics and Glasses; Combustion and Energy; Solidification; High temperature corrosion
- Nuclear and other applications
- Recycling and environmental engineering

This symposium will be a prestigious event, expected to attract industrial and academic leaders in the field of high temperature processes: stimulating discussion; facilitating industry networking; attracting large and knowledgeable audiences.
