High entropy alloys are novel advanced structural materials with extraordinary mechanical and functional properties. The ability to use them in day-to-day operation greatly depends on the ability to join them in both similar and dissimilar combinations. In this presentation, recent progress in welding of high entropy alloys including both similar and dissimilar welding will be presented, combining advanced microstructure characterization, high-throughput thermodynamic calculation and mechanical testing to comprehensively understand processing /microstructure /properties relationships.
