2004 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Didier de Fontaine Honorary Dinner

March 14–18 · 2004 TMS ANNUAL MEETING · Charlotte, North Carolina

In conjunction with the symposium: The Didier de Fontaine Symposium on the Thermodynamics of Alloys

Monday, March 15, 2004
Time: 6:00PM - 9:30PM
Location: Westin Charlotte Hotel
Room: Independence Room

Sponsored by: MPMD Computational Materials & Engineering (Jt. ASM-MSCTS)

Honoring the seminal contributions of Didier de Fontaine to the theory of alloys over the last 40 years. His many contributions are in the areas of crystallography, ordering reactions, and phase separation; using various techniques for the calculation of phase equilibria by combined first principles electronic band structure and statistical mechanical methods. The symposium will address basic issues of thermodynamic equilibrium in alloys that have been the center of Professor De Fontaine’s career. Topics and techniques of relevance include: Cluster expansion techniques as well as first principles atomistic techniques for the calculation of equilibrium structures and ordering phenomena in alloys, and the application of advanced X-Ray/neutron scattering and electron-microscopy methods in studies of alloy phase transformations.

Dinner tickets are $60 and may be purchased at the TMS Registration desk. Tickets will NOT be sold at the door.
