Industry News: Call for Papers - HI TEMP 2011 ConferenceNETZSCH Instruments wishes to invite you to attend the inaugural HI TEMP 2011 Conference, Sept. 20 – 22, 2011, at the Millenium Hotel in Boston. HI TEMP 2011 is intended to foster discussions and debate regarding the most recent understanding of “high temperature” and the state of the art in experimental studies of high temperature materials, processes, and diagnostics for scientific and technological applications.
The meeting will include presentations of cutting edge results on materials such as thermoelectric materials, thermal barriers, piezoelectric, nuclear reactor materials, radioactive waste, high temperature ceramics, catalysts, and insulating materials. The state of the art in high temperature characterization methods will be examined with a focus on thermal analysis.
The meeting will include 10 keynote lectures and 30 oral selected contributions, as well as a poster session.
Keynote speakers will include:
Prof. Denis Brosnan CLEMSON UNIVERSITY – Building materials
Dr. Sylvia Johnson NASA – Thermal protection materials
Dr. Rory Kennedy IDAHO NATIONAL LABORATORIES – Nuclear materials
Prof. David Clarke HARVARD UNIVERSITY – Low thermal conductivity oxides
Prof. Alexandra Navrotsky UNIVERSITY OF DAVIS – High temperature materials
Prof. George Rossetti UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT – Piezoelectrics
Dr. Ian Saratovsky NALCO – Pollutant species at high temperature
Dr. Laura Smilowitz LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL LAB – Energetic materials
Prof. Terry Tritt CLEMSON UNIVERSITY – Thermoelectrics
Dr. Jürgen Blumm NETZSCH - Ceramics
