The 9th International Rolling Conference and the 6th European Rolling Conference will be jointly organized by AIM, the Italian Society for Metallurgy.
Thanks to a long and successful series, the Rolling conferences have become the premier international
event for rolling practitioners world-wide. The target audience embraces the whole metals rolling community: flat and long products rolling, hot and cold rolling and ferrous and non-ferrous rolling.
The forum will cover product and process topics, encompassing rolled product properties, quality and applications, in addition to the design, control and management of mill assets.
The Conference will bring together rolling practitioners, steel producers, plant designers and researchers
and it will provide a forum for best practices and state-of-the-art technology. It will also take a look at developments in the foreseeable future.
