Call for Papers and Presentations

The AISTech Iron & Steel Technology Conference promotes the transfer of iron and steel technology by providing an international forum for authors to share ideas, experiences and knowledge of the industry. We invite you to submit your abstracts for consideration. AIST offers two opportunities to participate in AISTech 2023’s Technology Conference. Choose the option that best suits your objectives and available resources.

Option 1: Technical Paper
Papers presented during the Technology Conference are subsequently considered for publication in Iron & Steel Technology. Selection of papers for publication is based on the following factors: recommendations from sponsoring Technology Committee members; technical content, quality and current interest; quality of figures (should not require extensive reworking); and peer-review evaluations. Accepted papers may be published in the AISTech 2023 Conference Proceedings and are eligible for AIST Awards and Recognition, including the Hunt-Kelly Outstanding Paper Award, which features a US$5,000, US$2,500 and US$1,000 prize for the three highest-rated papers.

Technical papers selected for publication will receive a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), a unique alphanumeric identifier applied to a specific piece of intellectual property. DOIs are key components of reference-linking systems and help increase exposure for AISTech authors and papers.

Option 2: Presentation Only
Abstracts for Presentation Only are also being accepted for consideration.

PLEASE NOTE: Presentations without a corresponding paper will not be published in the AISTech 2024 Conference Proceedings, will not be eligible for publication in Iron & Steel Technology, and will not be eligible for any AIST Awards or Recognition.
