HSS-23 International workshop on HIGH STRENGTH STEELS

Bergamo - 26-27 October 2023

Increasing demand from the structural, energy, vehicles applications as well as oil & gas sector has boosted the rapid growth of the market for High Strength Steels. Steel manufacturers are constantly seeking the possibility of increasing strength, maintaining good toughness and weldability. Such a goal can be achieved by several routes: micro-alloying, advanced thermal treatment (i.e. intercritical quenching, bainitic quenching, quench and partitioning procedure etc.), high alligation by Mn and Al, thermo-mechanical processing. The scope of the workshop is to bring together the international community to highlight state-of-the-art research and development of such steel grades.

Main Topics
Both fundamental and applied aspects will be covered concerning:
- Alloying design
- HSLA steels
- thermo-mechanical processing
- advanced heat treatment

The workshop will be performed through presentations both invited and selected on the basis of the submitted abstracts.
The event will be a suitable meeting place for those involved in research, development and applications of HSS, interested to share recent advances on metallurgical design, set-up of production routes, paying attention to surface and inner quality, properties of HSS products. 
The deadline for abstract submission is June 30 in order to fulfil the selection for the final program.
