The 12th International Workshop on Plasma Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications will be held at Forschungszentrum Jülich (Jülich Research Center), Germany. This workshop series, formerly named "International Workshop on Carbon Materials for Fusion Applications", was initiated in 1985 by Forschungszentrum Jülich as a forum for information exchange on carbon based materials for plasma facing applications in nuclear fusion devices. To date, 11 workshops were organized; 8 of them took place in Jülich, one in Stockholm (1995 organized by KTH and FZJ), one in Hohenkammer (2000 organized by IPP, Garching and FZJ). Then it was high time for a change and redefinition of the scope of the symposium. To reflect the requirements of the ITER design and the ongoing evolution in the field it was decided in 2006 to change the name of the workshop from "International Workshop on Carbon Materials for Fusion Applications" to "International Workshop on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications". The workshop with the extended scope was held as 11th workshop, PFMC-11 in Greifswald (2006, organized by IPP, Greifswald).
