Metal Forming 2020 is the 18th in a series of International Conferences organized since 1974 by AGH University of Science and Technology 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 University of Science and Technology, 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. Approximately 200 regular papers and 6 specially invited keynote lectures are expected.
Main Objective of the Conference is 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.
