Importance of CALPHAD Highlighted in Presentation

CALPHAD has a long and storied history that is often overlooked in the larger context of materials science. However, with the signing of the Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) by President Obama in 2011, the large-scale initiatives in the EU around Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) and similar efforts starting in Asia, with Japan and China in the lead, CALPHAD has been getting more recognition within the Materials Genome community.

This was highlighted in a fascinating presentation given by Dr. Qing Chen of Thermo-Calc Software at the IFAM 2016 conference in Nanjing, China, this September. The presentation discussed the history of CALPHAD and underscored its importance in the larger context of computational materials engineering.
