The design of new alloys is flourishing since the introduction of high entropy alloys (HEAs). In this concept, alloys consist of a high concentration of multi principal elements offering vast composition ranges to develop novel materials with unexpected properties. In contrast to the original idea to exclusively create highly supersaturated solid solutions, most alloys turn out to be comprised of multiple phases, summarizing them under the name compositionally complex alloys (CCAs). The compositional complexity of HEAs and CCAs opens an enormous space for the discovery of new materials and raises intriguing questions on how to characterize such materials from the atomistic scale to their properties. This not only requires the development of new high throughput synthesis techniques, but also new theoretical approaches to predict the impact of compositional complexity on basic physical properties. The symposium is focused to address fundamental aspects in HEAs and CCAs ranging from new theoretical concepts to emerging characterization techniques and property evaluation.
