14 au 18 Juin 2020 - 17th International Conference on Aluminium alloys - Grenoble
Following the 16th edition of the International Conference on Aluminium Alloys (ICAA) held in Montreal, Canada, we are pleased to announce that ICAA continues with the 17th edition in Grenoble, France, 14-18 June 2020.
We will be delighted to welcome scientists from academia and industry to exchange through discussions on the science and application of Aluminium Alloys.

Abstract submission will be open from June 2019 to 1st November 2019.
Early Career Researcher Awards
Following the same spirit as ICAA16 in Montreal, six awards will be distributed to early career researchers on the basis of the quality of their scientific research and on their ability to communicate these results. More information.
ICAA is a renowned series of International Conferences on Aluminium Alloys, providing a forum where scientists and experts present and discuss the latest developments in the science and technology of aluminium alloys. With an attendance between 200 and 400 participants, well-balanced between academia and industry, the ICAA conferences aim at promoting exchanges and contacts between the two communities and at fostering long term collaborations. The conferences also encourage active participation of students, with the granting of specific early career awards, which bodes well for the next generation of professionals in the science and engineering of aluminium.
Providing a unique view on the latest research and technological developments in the field of aluminium alloys, ICAA conferences address more specifically the following subjects: fundamental mechanisms in the physical metallurgy of aluminium alloys at all stages of the processing routes, from semi-products to end applications; conventional alloys as well as new alloy developments; process metallurgy from solidification and casting to forming and joining, including such growing fields as additive manufacturing and the use of artificial intelligence. ICAA conferences traditionally emphasize the use of last generation analytical tools such as high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, sophisticated texture analysis, local elemental analysis techniques and large instruments. Physical modelling, starting at the atomic level, as well as process modelling in relation with microstructure generation and design are other topics of interest of ICAA conferences.
ICAA conferences feature outstanding keynote presentations, addressing market perspectives (aerospace, transport, packaging, building and construction) as well as high level scientific perspectives by inviting renowned and inspiring scientists. Fundamental science fostering industrial developments, industrial questions feeding scientific curiosity and shrewdness, are at the heart of our biennial conferences.
