Conference Announcement

NATO Advanced Study Institute (ASI) on Molten Salts: From Fundamentals to Applications, 4—14 May 2001, Kas, Turkey

The scope of this workshop covers fundamental aspects and applications of molten salts, glasses, and metal/ molten salt solutions. The Institute will address both high-temperature and low-melting salts, and it will deal with experimental approaches to reveal the microscopic, macroscopic, and dynamic behavior of melts. The role of computer modeling as a link between experiments and theory will be emphasized, as well as the importance of multidisciplinary and multi-technique approaches to unraveling the internal complexity of these technologically important liquids. The need to build up an easily accessible and reliable database will also be stressed.

Specific topics covered at the workshop will include the following: interionic forces and relevant statistical mechanics, diffraction studies, diffusion and transport, thermodynamics and thermochemistry, light scattering, electrochemistry, computer simulations, metal/molten salt solutions, ionic glasses, room-temperature molten salts, batteries, nuclear pyrochemistry, fuel cells, and data in the age of computerized science.
