International Tungsten, Refractory & Hardmaterials Conference Call for Papers

Tungsten2020The program committee for 10th International Conference on Tungsten, Refractory & Hardmaterials (Tungsten2020) has issued a “Call for Papers.” Refractory metals (W, Mo, Re, Ta, Nb, Os, Ir, Hf), their alloys and composites (including hardmaterials and cermets), are a unique family of materials. This conference seeks to address recent developments in the refractory and hardmetals field and will encompass refractory and hardmetal processing, microstructure, properties, and applications. Co-located with the World Congress on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials (WorldPM2020) and the Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy Conference (AMPM2020), this promises to be the largest global PM event of the year. All three co-located events will be held in Montréal, Canada, June 27–July 1, 2020, at the Montréal Convention Center.

Technical program co-chairmen Animesh Bose, FAPMI, Desktop Metal; Robert J. Dowding, U.S. Army Research Laboratory; and John L. Johnson, FAPMI, Elmet Technologies LLC, request abstracts covering any aspect of tungsten, refractory and hardmaterials, including:

· Refractory & Hardmaterials

· Powder Production

· Processing/Properties/Microstructure/


· Mechanical Behavior

· Computational Approaches

· Systems Integration

· And more


“It’s been six years since the last Tungsten, Refractory & Hardmaterials Conference, and a lot has happened in the industry in that time period, so we’re expecting this year’s technical program to be particularly robust,” stated John Johnson, FAPMI. “Environmental and safety standards and additive manufacturing using refractory metals are two hot topics that we plan on exploring throughout the conference.”

The abstract submission deadline is November 15, 2019. Visit Tungsten2020.org for details.

Meanwhile, all topics related to powder metallurgy and particulate materials should be submitted to WorldPM2020.org, and metal additive manufacturing topics should be submitted to AMPM2020.org.

All three conferences are sponsored by the Metal Powder Industries Federation, the North American trade association representing the powder metallurgy industry, and its affiliate APMI International.
