HPx-eos workshop, Trieste 2020

  • When: 1-4 September 2020 (note that the EMC 2020 conference in Krakow follows on 6-10 September).
  • Where: Department of Mathematics and Geosciences, University of Trieste, Trieste, Italy.
  • Participants: Students and researchers who use the HPx-eos in phase equilibrium modelling in their work, or have a serious interest in doing so. Practical activities will be taught using THERMOCALC, although we will be referring to a range of software, particularly Perple_X, and you’re welcome to bring questions and problems related to the use of the HPx-eos outside THERMOCALC.
  • Organisers: Luca Ziberna, Eleanor Green and Simon Schorn.
  • How to apply: we expect to make an application form available on this page in February 2020. We have limited space available and expect to allocate places on a first come, first served basis.
  • You will need to bring your own laptop computer and arrange and pay for your own travel and accommodation.
  • Registration fee: to be confirmed.

Our aims for the workshop are:

  • To discuss ways in which phase equilibrium modelling can be carried out appropriately and usefully.
  • To explore the HPx-eos: their construction, calibration and use.
  • To discuss and practise a range of phase equilibrium modelling applications using the program THERMOCALC, with reference to similar uses of the HPx-eos in other software, e.g. Perple_X. Note that we will teach the use of THERMOCALC from the beginning.
  • To make space for participants to raise questions and discuss their own computational phase equilibrium problems with the organisers and/or the group.
