More than 200 participants from 25 countries will come together for the ICASP 3 ..the 3rd International Conference on Advances in Solidification Processes

… and discuss recent progress in the area of solidification science and engineering spanning fundamental research as well as practical aspects of casting and advanced foundry research. Physical metallurgists, physicists, mathematicians, foundry and mechanical engineers discuss a wide range of topics including fundamental and applied solidification, numerical simulation and modeling of solidification processes, thermophysical properties and phase diagrams, advanced processing techniques and innovative diagnostic tools
The conference - being chaired by Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Lorenz Ratke (DLR Cologne) and Dr Gerhard Zimmermann (Access) - has been organized by Dr. Georg J. Schmitz and Margret Nienhaus (both Access).
Rolduc Abbey being located in Kerkrade (Netherlands) close to the frontiers with Germany and Belgium has been selected as THE place for this conference in view of its more than 900 years of history, its quiescent ambient inspiring for deep thoughts, its library as a symbol for collected knowledge, its court-yard as a scenic place for a nice group photo and last but not least for its nice abbey cellars inspiring informal discussions.
