Symposium S2P: Semi-solid Processing of Alloys and Composites
Organizer(s) Ahmed Rassili, CRM Group
Stephen Midson, The Midson Group
Scope Since the discovery of the specific flow behavior of metals in semi-solid state during the early seventies, this fascinating technology has experienced a dynamic and turbulent development history which has led to a whole family of new production processes, new equipment and industrial applications.

In order to fully exploit the technical and economic potential of these new ideas it is important to achieve a better understanding of the microstructure development, flow behavior, improved material and process modeling as well as process control. Since 1990, the bi-annual S2P International conferences have contributed to achieve this goal by providing a forum for scientists from various disciplines as well as for engineers and production specialists to learn from each other, to share the common knowledge and to develop a common sense on fundamental topics and industrial requirements.

The symposium will be the 14th conference in the series and will concentrate on the advancement of fundamental knowledge and development of materials and industrial processes for semi-solid manufacturing of high performance metal components. The conference topics will cover - but will not be limited to – the following subjects:

- Material development and characterization
- Rheology, modeling and simulation
- Process development
- Industrial application

The last session and the diner after will be a tribute to Prof. Merton Flemings from MIT, who is considered the inventor of this technology.

Note: The organizers for this symposium have asked that abstracts be submitted via e-mail to Notification of acceptance will occcur via e-mail by February 15, 2016, at which time authors will be asked to submit their abstracts here via the ProgramMaster system. The deadline to submit abstracts here is March 15, 2016.

About the Proceedings:
The contributions are published as following :
- Abstracts will be available in the MS&T conference program.
- Full papers will be published as traditionally done in Solid State Phenomena. The issue of Solid State Phenomena in which the papers will appear is not included in your MS&T registration fee and must be purchased separately through the publisher. Contact for more information.

Proceedings Deadlines:
- March 31: Manuscript submission by email to:
- May 31: Comments on the manuscript to the corresponding author
- June 30: Final manuscript submission

Only abstracts arriving within the S2P deadline, January 31, will be accepted undergo the review process for printed and published papers. All others will be reported only at the abstract book.
