Conference 2020 will comprise 3 sessions:

- SESSION 1 – Fundamental Problems of Metal Forming during Transition to Innovative Technology

This session will focus on theoretical problems of metal forming which are hindering progress in the industry amid the current economic changes and emergence of new consumer needs. A separate focus will be given to proposals of using domestic hi-tech products with unique combinations of properties to substitute their imported counterparts.

- SESSION 2 – Innovative Technology and Materials in Metal Forming

This session will examine the problems of developing innovative metal forming technologies with a special focus on novel solutions designed for developed plastic strain situations. The issues of ultimate deformability and fracture in advanced steel materials will also be covered.

- SESSION 3 – Cross-disciplinary solutions in advanced materials engineering (iSmart-Metal Forming)

The focus of this workshop is on computer engineering technology that helps build models of high adequacy to real processes and structures and thus avoid using costly full-scale models. The workshop will look at different computer modelling techniques (including multiscale modelling), which help predict how forming is likely to change the stress-strain state, properties and performance of metals.
