Metal Forming 2024 is the 20th in a series of International Conferences organized since 1974 by AGH University of Krakow, 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 Krakow, 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. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, Metal Forming 2020 was organized online by AGH and Metal Forming 2022 was organized, for the first time, in a hybrid format by China Society for Technology of Plasticity, CMES and Taiyuan University of Technology.
This time, during The 20th International Conference on Metal Forming, approximately 200 regular presentations 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.
