Aluminium Two Thousand 2015: An Announced Success for the Aluminium Industry


The next 9th World Congress Aluminium Two Thousand, that will be held in 2015, is in full preparation and will be the highlight event of the next year in Italy, in the renowned city of Florence.
It will be held together with the 5th International Conference on Extrusion and Benchmark ICEB (this event is usually organized by the DIEMTECH Department of the University of Bologna, Italy).

The synergy created by our editorial company Interall and the University of Bologna in collaboration with the University of Dortmund is a unique event, full of scientific contents and mainly full of “innovations” for the aluminium world, including extrusion, finishing, casting, rolling, metallurgy, forming, recycling.
The 120 papers already received as of today will show how research and industrial development are very alive and active around “our metal”. Perhaps the economic crisis of the “old” industrialized countries and the fast growth of the new economies in the emerging countries has stimulated the “brains” of researchers in universities and industries so that, never before, have we had so many innovative studies and so many new industrial applications as in these years.
The titles of these “innovations” will be published in our magazine, in the preliminary program of the “9th Aluminium Two Thousand Congress” (visible also on the website www.aluminium2000.com) in the next few months before the end of 2014.
So, it looks like 2015 will be a sort of turning point, where innovations will help the economy to grow again also in Europe and in North America.
Also the more general event in Europe (Italy, Milan), EXPO 2015, will be another “acceleration factor” for the economy and also the “aluminium industry” will benefit from this event.
As chairman of the 9th Aluminium Two Thousand Congress I invite you, from now, to ask for information about the event and the program and I look forward to seeing all of you in Florence from May 12th to May 16th, 2015 in order to join the delegates, speakers and exhibitors expected from 60 countries of the world.

"Since long I've noticed that talented persons

rarely remained seated letting things happen.

They went out and made them happen!"


“Da tempo avevo notato che le persone di talento

raramente sono rimaste sedute lasciando che le cose avvenissero.

Si sono alzate, sono uscite nel mondo e le hanno fatte accadere”
