Round-table Discussion

At SP17, we plan to hold a Round-table Discussion Session to debate the future directions for solidification science and casting technologies. The purpose of this session is to make a strategic assessment of where we are heading for the next 50 years based on a critical examination of what happened over the last 50 years. We believe this would be hugely beneficial to our community, particularly to its younger members. This 2-hour plenary session will include a series of 5-minute presentations from key players of the field followed by a panel (all speakers) discussion. Each speaker will be asked to present within 5 minutes his/her opinions on the future direction of solidification research. During the panel discussion session, members of the audience will be welcome to either ask questions for the panel to answer or to make their own comments on the future.
