5–7 June 2023 5th European Academic Symposium on EAF Steelmaking—EASES 2023

Oulu, Finland

The Process Metallurgy Research Unit at the University of Oulu and the Department for Industrial Furnaces and Heat Engineering at the RWTH Aachen University organise the 5th European Academic Symposium on EAF Steelmaking—EASES 2023 at the University of Oulu in Oulu, Finland, on 05‒07 June 2023.

Scope and Topics

The European Academic Symposium on EAF Steelmaking mainly focuses on researchers and doctoral candidates in academia and research and technology organisations and companies on the topic of EAF steelmaking and technology. It will provide the researchers and PhD students with the opportunity to present and discuss their current research projects. It will help them to connect, further understand what others working in the same field are doing, and create networks between the people working on similar topics.

Topics for presentations on the EAF process at the symposium include:

  • Efficiency and optimisation.
  • Process control and sensors.
  • CO2 emission reduction and environmental impact.
  • Process modelling and simulation.
  • Scrap treatment and control.
  • Alternative/new charge materials (DRI/HBI/…).
  • Slag and by-products engineering, processing, and valorisation.
  • Production of new steel grades.

Abstract submission is open at until 28 February 2023.

21–23 June 2023 7th International Conference of Engineering Against Failure (ICEAF VII)

Spetses, Greece

Conference Objective

In recent decades, it has been widely recognized that preventing failure of engineering structures necessitates the involvement of a large amount of expertise and, depending on the application, might require a multidisciplinary and multiscale approach in terms of both size and time. The series of the International Conference of Engineering Against Failure (ICEAF) aims to provide, on a biennial basis, a forum to present relevant scientific and technological achievements and discuss with an audience of international experts.

The scope of the Conference is to attract interdisciplinary work dedicated to design against engineering failure, the implementation of appropriate guidelines against failure, the development and application of concepts and technologies to prevent failure, the use of both novel and established approaches, technologies, and tools for failure analysis, as well as the deep understanding of the underlying failure mechanisms and the identification of a failure’s root causes.

Works are expected to cover a number of different technological areas, including aeronautics and space, automotive, marine, wind-energy, oil refineries and chemical industry, civil engineering applications, bioengineering and medical applications, etc. The ICEAF VII Conference is co-chaired by Spiros Pantelakis (Professor Emeritus, University of Patras, Laboratory of Technology and Strength of Materials) and Michael Vormwald (Professor, Head of Materials Mechanics Group, Technical University of Darmstadt), who are sharing the scientific responsibility for the Conference.
