After the successful experience of Graz 2015, once again, the 9th European Stainless Steel Conference Science & Market and the 6th European Duplex Stainless Steel Conference & Exhibition will be jointly organized, as a single event, by AIM, the Italian Society for Metallurgy.
The Conference will focus on all aspects of development, production technology (hot and cold rolling, heat treatment, etc.) and corrosion of stainless steels and duplex stainless steels and address delegates with both academic and industrial backgrounds.
The results shall contribute to the advancement of existing and potential applications and will help to guide future development.
The event will bring together developers, manufacturers and users of stainless steel from industry and academia and will compare the present and future needs to satisfy these demands now or in the future.
Short and medium term perspectives of European stainless steel flt and long products will be widely discussed during the Stainless Steel Market Outlook session.
It is expected the p
resence of speakers representing the most important European stainless steel associations and reports coming from the big stainless steel companies.

conference language

The Conference language will be English.

publication of proceedings

The full texts of all papers will be published in the form of electronic proceedings and issued to delegates on arrival at the Conference. A selection of the best papers will also be published on “La Metallurgia Italiana - International Journal of the Italian Association for Metallurgy”, the scientifi journal of AIM, which is covered in the Science Citation Index Expanded by Thomson Reuters and in Scopus by Elsevier B.V.
