||This symposium is focused on providing a forum for emerging developments in experimental, analytical, and computational solidification science and engineering. The objective is to bring together leading researchers in the field of solidification to discuss new advances within solidification science and methodologies for translating this new knowledge to practical applications. Topics of interest include the fundamentals of solidification (e.g. nucleation, morphological stability, and interface kinetics), in-situ observation, microstructure and defect formation and analysis, mushy zone dynamics, multi-scale phenomena, multi-scale computational methods, and novel processing techniques. Contributions presenting novel characterization techniques, property measurements, and computational simulations are encouraged.
