Post Ferrous '12 Conference - Metallorgraphy Workshop
George vander Voort has agreed to host a one-day post conference workshop on various aspects of metallography. Ensure that you donʼt miss this opportunity to gain knowledge on metallographic sample preparation and interpretation. There will also be an opportunity to discuss other metallographic problems you might be struggling with.

Please ensure that you book your seat in advance since places are limited.

Objectives

*Insight into Materials R&D for applications in the Energy, Petrochemical and Transport Sectors in South Africa and Globally
*Progress Assessment of R&D Programmes in the AMI-FMDN
*Insight into potential and value-adding R&D within the AMI-FMDN

Who should attend

Stakeholders from the energy, petrochemical and transportation industries where ferrous metals (i.e. iron, steel, stainless steels, superalloys, etc.) are used in their infrastructure. Also included in this invitation are Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), Government Departments and Science Councils that are involved and/or have interest in R&D in these areas.

The conference will provide a forum for researchers and industry role players to present the progress made on research and development, as well as industrial application of technologies. The intention is also to promote the activities of the Ferrous & Base Metals Development Network to the broader South African industrial and scientific communities. It is a unique opportunity for networking and information sharing.

Topics

Papers are invited on the following topics which are expected to be dealt with during the conference proceedings:

*Overview of the National Transport Masterplan (NATMAP - 2050)
*Overview of the Railway Development Plan in South Africa
*Materials for Cost Effective Transportation
     - Lightweight Materials for Rail Applications
     - Lightweight Materials for Land-based Transportation (e.g. vehicles, trucks, etc.)
*Material challenges in the Petrochemical Industry
*Materials for Petrochemical Applications
*Materials for Energy Generation Applications.
