49th ICFG Plenary Meeting


Dear colleagues, ICFG members, accompanying persons and guests,

The 49th ICFG Plenary Meeting is getting closer.

After a short period of absence of five years, the ICFG Plenary Meeting is back to Germany. On September 4th to 7th, 2016 the next Plenary Meeting will be held in Stuttgart.

We hereby invite you to participate in the meeting and to contribute to the program by submitting a paper if possible. The meeting will contain some presentations on trends and visions in cold forming held by experts from industry and academia from Germany, Europe and international countries.

Furthermore, we will organise paper and poster sessions to which we would like to invite you to contribute. Please feel free to encourage young colleagues of yours to present their results.

The city of Stuttgart is located in the southwest of Germany and the centre of one of the most productive metropolitan regions and most innovative high-technology locations in Europe. In addition to its industrial focus, there is a lot more to see and discover. This is why specific programs will be organised for accompanying persons.

On the last day of the Plenary Meeting, two technical visits will be offered in the surrounding area of Stuttgart. You will be able to take a closer look at cold forming manufacturers and press production technology.

We kindly ask members to encourage interested colleagues from industry and academia in their country to participate as well. We would be glad to forward an invitation to those candidates.


Guests and friends

Individuals, who are not members of ICFG, can participate in this meeting as well by handing in a letter of recommendation from an ICFG- member who is resident in their country. You can find the list of members at the ICFG website.
