Copper Alloys 2018

Swedish research institute Swerea KIMAB and the German Copper Institute are jointly organising a first international congress for copper processing companies, universities and research institutes.

It will present the latest scientific and technical developments on the use of copper materials. In addition to aspects such as the growing requirements in automobile technology, and in electrical and electronic applications, the focus is on processing and production, recycling, material design and the corrosion properties of copper materials, as well as traditional topics such as copper materials in drinking water systems.

Leading experts presenting will include Lorenzo Omodei of CEN / TC 133, Italy; Inger Odnevall Wallinder of the KTH, Sweden; Frank Mücklich of the University of Saarbrücken in Germany; and Paolo Piccardo of the University of Genoa, Italy. A large number of renowned institutes will also be represented, including Fraunhofer Germany and the Hellenic Research Center for Metals, who will present their latest research results on copper materials as well as practical application examples.

The registration fee for participants is 730 euros. Students pay 250 euros. A late fee will apply to registrations after 11 March.
