    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.
