6th Dicennial International Conference on Solidification Processing - SP17
Organised by BCAST.
Today, the world is standing at a turning point from the historical take-make-dispose linear economy to a more sustainable circular economy. The historical dissipative consumption of limited metal resources is giving way to a more sustainable circulation of existing metals. This provides us with great opportunities to formulate new metallic materials, to develop new casting technologies and to explore new applications. SP17 aims to bring together solidification scientists, casting engineers and end users from both academia and industry:
• To make a fresh and critical examination of our historical approaches to solidification research and casting technology innovation over the last 50 years.
• To discuss and identify new approaches to the grand challenges in the field for next 10 years and beyond.
