Scope This symposium is dedicated to the innovative contributions made by Professor Rainer Schmid-Fetzer to materials science for over forty years. With his background in metallurgy and physics he has earned merits in materials thermodynamics and constitution of multicomponent and multiphase materials, phase diagram calculation software algorithm design, thermodynamic model and database development, and their applications in solidification, microstructure development, interface reactions in bulk and thin film materials, and computational design of materials

To honor the broad range of Rainer Schmid-Fetzer’s research on alloys, semiconductors, ceramics and functional materials, the symposium will highlight work that integrates experimental and computational investigations. It is being held to celebrate Rainer Schmid-Fetzer’s lifelong and ongoing contributions as Professor Emeritus to our materials science community. This symposium welcomes contributions from all the aspects depicted above, including but not limited to the following topics:
• Thermodynamics and constitution of multicomponent and multiphase materials.
• Thermodynamic modeling, CALPHAD method and applications to computational design of materials and process optimization.
• CALPHAD database development comprising critical assessment and inclusion of ab initio methods.
• Solidification of alloys and microstructure development studied by experiments and CALPHAD simulations.
• Reactivity at interfaces in bulk and thin film materials, bonding and contacts in electronic materials relating to thermodynamics and kinetics.
• Li-battery materials development supported by thermodynamic and kinetic studies.
