To provide a forum for academics and industrialists to discuss and disseminate recent developments, innovations and advances in metal forming processes. The conference will be an opportunity for those working in physical and numerical modelling, as well as those involved in industrial applications of the results of theoretical research.
Metal Forming 2016 is the 16th in a series of International Conferences organized since 1974 by AGH Akademia Górniczo-Hutnicza in Kraków, Poland. From 1994 to 2010 the Conference was organized biannually, jointly with the University of Birmingham, UK. The latter was replaced by the University of Toyohashi in 2010, when the Conference went, for the first time, to Japan. Metal Forming 2012 was organized in Kraków, Poland by AGH Akademia Górniczo-Hutnicza, together with the University of Toyohashi and, for the first time, by the University of Palermo, Italy, which has joined the Organization team, and hosted the Conference in 2014. Over 200 regular papers and 6 specially invited keynote lectures are expected.
AGH Akademia Górniczo-Hutnicza (AGH University of Science and Technology) is located in the historical city of Kraków, the former capital of Poland, currently the centre of Polish science and culture. Beyond the Old Town, the Royal Castle and socialist district of Nowa Huta, there are many monuments and interesting places in the City and in the close neighbourhood of Kraków, such as historical Wieliczka salt mine and Zakopane in Tatra Mountains. Kraków can be easily reached by car, train or plane from many worldwide locations.
