    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.

    The 4th International Seville Future-Oriented Technology Analysis (FTA) Conference will be held 12 - 13 May 2011, at the JRC Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) in Seville, Spain. The focus of the conference is on the need and potential of FTA to address dynamic and disruptive events in response to grand societal challenges. These events may range from rapid technological changes to shifts in social norms, values and lifestyles. FTA is a potential tool to gain a better understanding of the complex systems that interact in each situation and in defining effective policy responses. Therefore, governments and other organisations can become more adaptive and capable of enacting systemic changes. This bi-annual conference is an opportunity for the scientific and policy-maker community in the FTA area to meet and to mutually deepen their knowledge.
