Call for abstracts on the following topics:

Advanced characterization of aluminum alloys:
This symposium will provide a venue for presentations regarding the use of advanced characterization techniques in all aspects related to aluminum development and processing. Techniques such as but not limited include microscopy, spectroscopy, diffraction, etc.

Aluminum Casting and solidification:
This symposium welcomes contributions regarding solidification processing, microstructure evolution during solidification, and novel casting and molding technologies. Works ranging from theoretical to experimental investigations will be presented.

Corrosion and surfaces:
The symposium serves as a platform for researchers to showcase their innovative solutions for global corrosion issues applied to Al alloys and its surfaces. Presentation discussing the different type of corrosions including atmospheric, uniform, galvanic, crevice, pitting deposition, intergranualr, exfoliation, erosion, stress corrosion cracking corrosion fatiguefiliform and microbiological induced corrosion are welcomed.

Deformation behaviour and formability:
The symposium will focus on all aspects of deformation and formability of aluminum alloys. This will include but not be limited to research linking physical and mechanical metallurgy of aluminum alloys to deformation behavior and formability as well as understand the effect of alloy composition but processing history on this behavior.

Joining of Advanced Al Alloys:
This symposium will focus on innovative solid-state or liquid-state processes to join and bond Al alloys, the emerging relationships between the joining parameters and the resulting microstructure and mechanical properties. Industrial adoption of advanced joining processes is also included.

Juergen Hirsch Honorary Symposium:
This symposium in honor of Juergen Hirsch will discuss recent developments in the thermomechanical processing of aluminum alloys. The contributions of Juergen Hirsch will be highlighted and the current status and recent advances in relevant research areas will be discussed.

Mechanical properties of advanced aluminum alloys:
The symposium covers all relations linking physical and mechanical metallurgy of aluminum alloys, and their link with the processing methods. Discussion not limited to tensile, fatigue, impact, fracture toughness, creep and ultimately product development testing, will provide guidance towards utilisation of aluminum transportation, packaging, and other key product applications.

Modelling and simulation
This symposium will cover aspects across all areas of modeling and simulation both in terms of theoretical approaches to practical industrial simulations. This symposium will address integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) tools and techniques and their integration, as well as to examine their application to aluminum processing.

New directions in manufacturing and alloy design:
This symposium will provide an international forum to explore novel research directions that are currently being studied to look at alternative ways to manufacture aluminum but also the design of new alloys including the production of clad or laminate products, additive manufacturing and use of aluminum both in terms of manufacturing and alloy design for manufacturing.

Phase transformations:
This symposium will provide an international forum to experimentalists and theoreticians working in the field of solid-state phase transformations of aluminum alloys. This audience will describe new theories to explains the complex interaction between the Al and the solutes during heat treatments and processing.

Sustainability in design and recycling:
The importance of the design to end of life closed loop involving design, sustainable usage, recycling, waste reduction, and resource management to society and industry is a very important topic. For aluminum alloys, accumulation of impurities in In this looping may provide a significant compositional barrier to the sustainable goals. The objective of this symposium is to discuss innovative ideas and streams to change our current behaviors.

Thermomechanical processing of advanced Al alloys:
This symposium welcomes articles covering high temperature deformation, texture and formability of of aluminum alloys. Topics include reviews on thermomechanical processing of aluminum alloys, dynamic recrystallization and transformation textures. Targeted high temperature processes are rolling, extrusion, forging.
