||The ninth edition of the "Frontiers in Solidification" symposium series is dedicated to Jonathan A. Dantzig, a recognized world leader in the field of solidification, casting, and computational modelling of materials processing and microstructure development. Starting his career in process modelling, Jon later tackled more fundamental aspects of solidification modeling at the microstructure level. Therefore, this edition is particularly focused on process and microstructure modeling, even though contributions across the entire field of solidification are welcome.
- Fundamental aspects of solidification which advance our understanding of how microstructures develop and evolve during solidification experiments or processes;
- Contributions which put forward original interpretations, observations of novel phenomena, and outstanding challenges from both fundamental and applied perspectives, as well as transfer of fundamental knowledge to practical applications;
- Investigation methods including theory, experiments, characterization, modeling across all relevant length and time scales, as well as data-driven approaches;
- Contributions that combine novel characterization techniques, challenging property measurements, and computational simulations across scales are especially encouraged.
