The Organising and Scientific Committees of the Symposium cordially invite researchers and other actors to give a presentation or pitch a poster. The session and preference for poster pitch or oral presentation should be indicated upon abstract submission. Selected papers will be considered for publication in a Special Issue in the Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy.


Participants can submit an abstract (150-250 words, excluding the title, authors and their affiliation). Standard template is to be used and can be downloaded here. The deadline for abstract submission is September 15, 2018. The authors will be informed by November 15, 2018 of the acceptance of their abstract, and whether it is accepted as poster pitch or oral presentation.
