Are you fascinated with light metals technology, and looking to travel to Australia next summer? You might want to consider submitting a paper or registering for the Fourth International Light Metals Technology Conference, which will be held in Queensland in late June. If you have an interest in aluminum, titanium  and magnesium alloys, particularly alloy development, processing, modeling, and applications, you should submit an abstract before September 12, 2008. You can cover any of these light metal topics:

  • Changing nature of the light metals industry
  • Environmental challenges
  • Computational materials science
  • Building a culture of innovation
  • Medical applications
  • Automotive applications
  • Energy applications
  • Aerospace applications
  • Processing innovations
  • Near net shape manufacturing
  • Novel forming technologies
  • Surface modification

The Global Light Metals Alliance has held the conference every two years since 2003, when more than 160 delegates attended the conference, including participants from 29 research institutions and 36 light metals companies. During past conferences, presentations have covered different hybrid design materials, the state of the art in through-process-modeling for forming and casting, and improvements in melt quality control, alloy compositions and heat treatment parameters. To register or learn more about the conference and the Global Light Metals Alliance, visit the conference website.
