We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
This will be the tenth of a series of well-established workshops on experimental, theoretical, simulation, and applied aspects of the thermophysical behaviour of matter in the millisecond to picosecond time regimes. It will include, among others, rapid resistive or inductive heating (volume), pulsed laser heating (surface), and levitation techniques. Presentations regarding new experimental techniques in the area of subsecond thermophysics are always welcome. The emphasis will be on measurements of thermophysical properties at high temperatures. In this regime pulse-heating techniques are a unique approach to study the behaviour of matter under conditions near and far from thermodynamic equilibrium.
An informal workshop atmosphere has been chosen to promote exchange and cooperation among scientists and researchers from academia, research institutions, and industry, with common scientific and technical interests.
