The MPIF has issued a call for papers for the 10th International Conference on Tungsten, Refractory & Hardmaterials (Tungsten2021).

The conference will cover recent developments in the refractory and hardmetals field and includes refractory and hardmetal processing, microstructure, properties, and applications, the organization said. It will be co-located with the International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials (PowderMet2021) and the Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy Conference (AMPM2021) in Orlando, Florida, from 20–23 June 2021.

Abstracts should cover any aspect of tungsten, refractory and hardmaterials, including:

  • refractory and hardmaterials
  • powder production
  • processing/properties/microstructure/ performance
  • mechanical behavior
  • computational approaches
  • systems integration.

‘It’s been seven years since the last Tungsten, Refractory and 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,’ said 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 13 November 2020.
