Michael Bernhard and Peter Presoly participated in the 50th International Conference on Computer Coupling of Phase Diagrams and Thermochemistry (CALPHAD) from June 25-30. The conference was held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston (MA, US).

Michael Bernhard gave a lecture on new results from his stay abroad at the Graduate Institute of Ferrous and Energy Materials Technologies (GIFT) in South Korea under the title “Development of a thermodynamic database for future control of tramp elements in steelmaking processes” (co-authors Won-Bum Park, Peter Presoly and Youn-Bae Kang).

Peter Presoly prepared a poster on new measurements on Fe-Mn and Fe-C-Mn entitled “A big step back: from multicomponent Fe-alloys to the experimental investigation of the Fe,Mn:Va,C system” (co-authors Michael Bernhard and Christian Bernhard).

In addition to numerous fruitful discussions on thermodynamic modeling and interesting presentations, socials of the CALPHAD community took place.
