17th International Conference on Aluminium Alloys – ICAA17
ICAA is a renowned series of International Conferences on Aluminium Alloys, providing a forum where scientists and experts present and discuss the latest developments in the science and technology of aluminium alloys. With an attendance between 200 and 400 participants, well-balanced between academia and industry, the ICAA conferences aim at promoting exchanges and contacts between the two communities and at fostering long term collaborations. The conferences also encourage active participation of students, with the granting of specific early career awards, which bodes well for the next generation of professionals in the science and engineering of aluminium.
Providing a unique view on the latest research and technological developments in the field of aluminium alloys, ICAA conferences address more specifically the following subjects: fundamental mechanisms in the physical metallurgy of aluminium alloys at all stages of the processing routes, from semi-products to end applications; conventional alloys as well as new alloy developments; process metallurgy from solidification and casting to forming and joining, including such growing fields as additive manufacturing and the use of artificial intelligence. ICAA conferences traditionally emphasize the use of last generation analytical tools such as high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, sophisticated texture analysis, local elemental analysis techniques and large instruments. Physical modelling, starting at the atomic level, as well as process modelling in relation with microstructure generation and design are other topics of interest of ICAA conferences.
ICAA conferences feature outstanding keynote presentations, addressing market perspectives (aerospace, transport, packaging, building and construction) as well as high level scientific perspectives by inviting renowned and inspiring scientists. Fundamental science fostering industrial developments, industrial questions feeding scientific curiosity and shrewdness, are at the heart of our biennial conferences.
