The 16th International Conference on Liquid and Amorphous Metals (LAM-16) will be held at the town hall of Bonn - Bad Godesberg, Germany, from September 04-09, 2016. The conference aims to provide a forum for scientists interested in liquid and amorphous metals in order to discuss recent advances and future directions in this intriguing field of condensed matter physics, chemistry and materials sciences. Apart from papers on metallic systems, the LAM conferences traditionally also welcome contributions on liquid and amorphous semi-conductors as well as on molten salts. The series of LAM conferences has a long standing history dating back to the liquids metal conference LM-1 in Brookhaven (1966). It was followed by the liquid metals conferences in Tokyo (1972) and Bristol (1976). The scope of the conference series was complemented by topics of amorphous metals in the following LAM conferences held in Grenoble (1980), Los Angeles (1983), Garmisch-Partenkirchen (1986), Kyoto (1989), Wien (1992), Chicago (1995), Dortmund (1998), Yokohama (2001), Metz (2004), Ekaterinburg (2007), Rome (2010) and Beijing (2013). We are planning plenary sessions on hot topics and future advances in the field and there will be thematically focused sessions with invited and selected contributed talks as well as a poster session.
