June 16-19, 2013 Oulu, Finland
Following its six predecessors in Harbin (1990), Hainan (1997), Beijing (1999), Shanghai (2004), Zhengzhou (2007) and Guilin (2010), this conference will be held outside China for the first time. It provides an excellent international forum for those who wish to present their latest work on advances in the field of physical and numerical simulation methods and their applications in the processing of advanced materials.
Oulu will provide an excellent environment for a highly enjoyable stay during the conference with among other things 24 hours of daylight. You will be able to find further information concerning all aspects of the conference on the web page (coming soon) and will be updated as details become available.
Organized by the Centre for Advanced Steels Research at the University of Oulu and in co-operation with Finnish Metals and Engineering Competence Cluster (FIMECC Ltd) and Chinese universities Harbin Institute of Technology, Henan Polytechnic University, Southwest University of Science and Technology, and Huaqiao University, and sponsored by Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society, Dynamic Systems Inc, Outokumpu Oyj, Ruukki Metals Oy, and University of Oulu.
Main topics will include:
> Physical simulation (Gleeble testing, torsion, dilatometry, thermal analysis, etc) of material processing: continuous casting, thermomechanical processing, hot rolling, forging, extrusion, forming, welding, heat treatments, etc
> Numerical simulation and modeling of liquid metal processing, continuous casting, thermomechanical processes, and all phenomena occurring during metal processing.
> Processing and characterization of advanced materials.
> Fabrication of advanced materials.
