Calphad Optimizer online training course

If you want to learn how to use the Calphad Optimizer to develop your own thermodynamic databases or to improve on an existent open thermodynamic database, this is a good opportunity for you!

From August 8th to August 10th 2023, we will host the next three-day online training course for the Calphad Optimizer. On each day, the course will take half a day, from 1 pm to 5 pm Central European Time (CET). 

The Calphad Optimizer is our new tool to facilitate the development of thermodynamic databases based on the Calphad methodology, which is implemented in the latest FactSage release 8.2. Check our blogpost to learn more about the Calphad Optimizer:

To participants who don’t already have FactSage installed on their PCs we will make FactSage available for use during the course. 

The course is open to all interested parties. The fee is 370 Euro for all participants and includes teaching materials. For German customers and for customers from outside the EU (this is also applicable to the UK) the German VAT of 19% will be charged.  

We will accept a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 10 participants, so please register as soon as possible by filling in the registration form below. Registration deadline is August 1st, 2023.

This training course has been designed to be interactive and engaging, featuring real-life optimization examples from the literature to ensure that participants receive practical, hands-on experience.

Contents of the course: 
1) Introduction to thermochemical databases 
2) Creating a database as input for the CalphadOptimizer 
3) Setting up experiments 
4) Weight factor settings 
5) Setting up the optimization and hyperparameters 
6) Analyzing the optimization results
7) Performing a real-life optimization based on literature data 

We are looking forward to welcoming you online!
