2nd International Symposium on The Recent Developments in Plate Steels

3–6 June 2018 • Orlando, FL, USA

►Call for Papers
►Submit Abstract

About the Program

Submissions are currently being accepted for papers on all aspects related to new developments in steel plate from around the world, including: new developments in clean steelmaking practices, inclusion engineering, superior slab centerline casting practices, advances in slab conditioning practices, advances in slab internal quality
assessment techniques, microstructure evolution and the effects on properties and performance, alloy design/product development, trends in newer steel developments (e.g., high-Mn, low-density steels), slab reheating practices, thermomechanical controlled processing and heat treating, cooling technologies and applications,
newer technologies for plate production (e.g., in-line induction tempering), leveling (roller, temper and stretcher), discrete and coiled plate production, on-line inspections

Who Should Submit

Both producer and user perspectives are desired, as well as academia and other researchers. Of particular interest are papers on product application and the attributes required (i.e., abrasion resistance, hydrogen-induced cracking resistance, welding, forming, thermal cutting, high-temperature resistance, earthquake resistance, low-density materials and machinability). Recognized sectors for product application include: line pipe, bridge, infrastructure, structures, offshore, shipbuilding, railroad cars, pressure vessels, heavy machinery, lifting equipment, dumper bodies, nuclear power plants, wind towers, transmission poles, armor, overlay, clad, yellow goods, etc.
A proceedings volume will be produced. Papers that are not selected for oral presentation will be considered for poster presentation. Poster presentations will also be published in the proceedings.

Bring Your Own Young Professional (BYOYP) Program

AIST recently launched the Bring Your Own Young Professional (BYOYP) program to encourage our members to help boost the next generation’s involvement in AIST and the steel industry. If you are an AIST member and are bringing a Young Professional (age 30 and under) to the conference, you can receive a free gift. All you have to do is enter their contact information on the registration form when you sign up for the conference. Find out more information about the program here.  

Professional Development Hours

This course may qualify for up to 26 Professional Development Hour (PDH) credits. Each attendee will receive a certificate listing the quantity of PDH credits earned for the course. This course is not approved for PDH credit in New York, Florida, North Carolina and Oklahoma.
