On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to invite you to the 11th International Conference on Molten Slags, Fluxes and Salts (MOLTEN 2021), which will be hosted in Seoul, Korea from February 21 to 25 of 2021.

Since the inaugural meeting at Halifax, Canada in 1980, the International Conference on Molten Slags, Fluxes and Salts has been held in celebrated places around the world; including Lake Tahoe (1984), Glasgow (1988), Sendai (1992), Sydney (1996), Stockholm & Helsinki (2000), Cape Town (2004), Santiago (2009), Beijing (2012), and Seattle (2016). Continuing with this rich tradition and success, the 11th conference will be held in Seoul, Korea.

The conference aims to provide opportunities for researchers and engineers from around the world to present their works and share their ideas in the field of Molten Slags, Fluxes and Salts. Significant advancements in all aspects of research, development, and applications shall be covered within technical presentations and posters. Another aim of the conference is to enhance the relationships between member societies and provide a venue for friends and colleagues to share common goals of research, development, and application in this important field of materials.

Specifically, MOLTEN 2021 explores the recent progress in slags, fluxes and salts research based on the rich heritage from 40 years of past endeavors providing the seed for another 40 years of research growth in our field of excellence. Regardless of the field of ferrous and non-ferrous communities, environment, or energy, we hope that researchers can discuss opportunities for the present and future.

Seoul, a venue for MOLTEN 2021, is a fascinating city located along the Han River of Korea, embracing the ancient culture and historical building with modern developments in a surprisingly harmonious manner. This well-balanced mix might be the way we should learn in our field as well, saving the old and braving the new. 

We eagerly await the exciting developments which will arise from the upcoming conference, and we look forward to seeing you in Seoul, Korea in February 2021!
