||The symposium will focus on the physical metallurgy of steels with novel alloying concepts including increased levels of Mn, Al and Si. There are significant challenges in processing of these advanced steels to obtain microstructures and properties required for applications in the transportation and energy sectors. Contributions are sought that deal with novel microstructure concepts and processing strategies to manufacture high performance steels. A particular emphasis will be on steels with complex-phase microstructures including TRIP/TWIP and interface precipitation. The aim of the symposium is to provide an overview on the recent advances made in experimental and modelling studies as well as their industrial application.
