GdR TherMatHT accomplishments
The first period following its creation, from 2013 to 2017, has been dedicated to bring together the materials thermodynamics community in France, with the aim to provide common working tools, share good practice methodologies, organize annual seminars, set up two dedicated summer schools in 2015 and 2017, and establish thematic subgroups. The themes of such subgroups are regularly revised to respond to expressed specific needs from the community. So far, 4 such subgroups have been active, dedicated to silicon carbide, thermodynamics of glasses, oxycarbides, and high-temperature analysis techniques. Other emerging domains are also currently in discussion.
