Website: LMPC 2017

The Liquid Metal Processing & Casting Conference (LMPC 2017) is a 2.5-day event that brings together people from both academia and industry every two years to discuss the latest advances in primary and secondary melt processing including vacuum induction melting (VIM), vacuum arc remelting (VAR), electroslag refining (ESR), and electron beam cold hearth remelting (EBCHR). There is no other dedicated conference that specializes in this type of melting.

This unique professional development experience will feature highly focused technical talks that have a balanced representation of both academia and industry. Attendees will have the chance to keep up with colleagues and hear the latest developments in liquid metal processing research. For more details on other topics that will be covered during LMPC 2017, visit the Technical Program page.
