Molten salts are involved in many industrial processes as metallurgy, catalysis, nuclear industry or fuel cells manufacturing. A better knowledge of these systems, of their properties and their involvement in new programs and developments is central to the topics of MS11 conference. It will be a real  opportunity to review current and future advances, both in terms of research and industrial applications. Since its first edition in Kyoto, Japan in 1983, this congress, now quadrennial, has been organized by different countries such as United States, Germany, China, France, Norway ... This is the third time that France is designated for the organization of such a meeting. After Paris in 1991, Toulouse in 2005, Orleans is today the place in that the international community of molten salts will meet. This conference brings together all the actors involved in molten salt research: academics, industrial players, researchers and PhD students. They will join in this meeting and identify, consolidate, induce the complementarities of their work and thus produce scientific progress.
