Paper submissions are now open for the 2020 World Congress on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials (WORLDPM2020), to be held in Montréal, Quebec, Canada, June 27–July 1, 2020. The congress will be organised by the MPIF and APMI International in conjunction with Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy (AMPM) 2020 and the Tungsten, Refractory and Hardmaterials Conference 2020.
WORLDPM is held every two years and in 2018 took place in Beijing, China. At WORLDPM2018, more than one-hundred international exhibitors attended the exhibition, while the conference programme saw the presentation of more than 400 technical papers, including invited talks.
The 2020 conference will cover the full range of Powder Metallurgy topics, ranging from metal powder production and technology, powder compaction, sintering and post-processing to Metal Injection Moulding, cemented carbides, porous materials, Additive Manufacturing and the design and simulation of Powder Metallurgy parts.
In addition to the conference, there will be a major exhibition featuring a wide range of international exhibitors and providing an opportunity for networking with material and equipment suppliers, part producers and end-users.
Paper submissions are invited in the following categories:
- Design & modelling of PM materials, components & processes
- Particulate production
- General compaction & forming processes
- Powder Injection Moulding (metals & ceramics)
- Pre-sintering & sintering
- Secondary operations
- Refractory metals, carbides & ceramics
- Advanced particulate materials & processes
- Material properties
- Testing & evaluation
- Management issues
Those wishing to submit papers should do so no later than November 15, 2019. Further information on the event and on paper submissions is available via the conference website.
