After few years of sanitary restrictions, S2P Conference is back in full in-person mode!
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to the 17th International Conference on Semi Solid Processing of Alloys and Composites (S2P2023), which will be held from September 6th to 8th, 2023 in Brescia, Italy.
The 17th S2P International Conference focuses on the advancement in fundamental knowledge and development of materials and industrial processes for semi-solid manufacturing of high-performance metal components. This conference will continue a successful series of conferences on semi-solid processing of alloys and composites started in 1990.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Italy!
