First Announcement of ISMP2021

              date: 25/04/2021

General Information

The International Symposium on Metal Processing (ISMP) is initiated by The Chinese Society for Metals (CSM), The Nonferrous Metals Society of China (Nfsoc) and Northeastern University (NEU). The aim of this symposium is to provide a platform for the academia, researchers and engineers all around the world to exchange state-of-the-art development and information on issues related to metal processing, and promote the fundamental study and process innovation in the fields of metal processing. 

The first symposium will be held in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, China on August 24-26, 2021. ISMP2021 aims at examining the key aspects involved in TMP: phase transformations, complex microstructures evolution, applications in CSP/ESP, in-line heat treatments, measurement techniques and the technological forming operations (rolling, forging, extrusion etc.). 

Due to the present situation of COVID-19, the format of presentation for ISMP2021 will be mainly on-site communication combined with on-line presentation (by VCR) from the overseas speakers who are not possible for international travel in the period of ISMP2021.



The Conference will cover topics concerning the following issues:


1. Technology and Product Development in ThermoMechanical Processing

Ø  Steel:

- Hot strips and hot plates refer to the control of rolling and cooling

- Compact Strip Production (CSP)/Endless Strip Production (ESP)

- Continuous strip casting and related short process technology

- Hot stamping and forging

Ø  Non-Ferrous alloys (Al, Cu, Mg, Ti and other alloys):

- Rolling, forging, extrusion and drawing


2. Physical Metallurgy of ThermoMechanical Processing

- Computation and modelling

- Microstructure and property

- Recrystallization, precipitation and phase transformation

- Solidification mechanism of continuous casting

- On-line heat treatment

- Oxidation of steel

- Hot rolling based on the control of oxidation behavior


3. Intelligent Manufacturing

- Industrial big data analytics based on ThermoMechanical Processing

- Establishment of industrial internet platform and cyber-physical system

- Development of digital twin system on key processes

- In process quality control and intelligent optimization decision of ThermoMechanical Processing
