The 10th Aluminium Two Thousand World Congress and 6th International Conference on Extrusion and Benchmark (ICEB) will for the first time be held concurrently with the METEF International Exhibition in Verona, Italy on June 20-24, 2017.
Aluminium Two Thousand and ICEB will bring together “aluminium and light alloys” specialists in a single venue, creating an attractive and unique opportunity for industry managers, technicians, researchers, technology suppliers, and other qualified speakers for meeting and understanding the latest researches, discoveries, and the trends for the future. The event expects to receive 500 participants at the congress and 10,000 visitors at Metef Exhibition.
Potential speakers are invited to submit a title (with list of the authors) for a proposed presentation by May 31, 2016 and an abstract (maximum 1 page) before June 30, 2016.
