For its 42nd International Conference and Exhibition, ICSOBA is inviting you to return to the home turf of Paul Héroult and the place of one of the first plants where Karl Josef Bayer implemented his patented process of alumina extraction from bauxite.
The conference is planned in the same format as last two years with authors delivering their presentation physically. The presentations will be broadcast live for the participants who cannot attend in-person.
The conference will take place in Lyon (France) from 27 to 31 October 2024.
We are very thankful to Alteo, Aluminium Dunkerque, Rio Tinto and Trimet for supporting the conference as host sponsors.
We look forward to seeing you all at ICSOBA 2024!
ICSOBA 2024 will cover the following main subjects:
In these subjects ICSOBA 2024 will explore the following key issues
Do not miss the opportunity to interact with international experts, scientists, engineers, technology suppliers, equipment manufacturers and representatives of worldwide aluminium industry.
The hybrid format of the conference will enable your participation irrespectively if you travel to Lyon or must stay at home. The difference between on-site and online participation is:
While keeping with the main fields of bauxite-alumina-aluminium, the conference will focus on the industry key challenges of today such as sustainability, decarbonisation, digitalisation, IA, …. whilst maintaining a high scientific and technical innovation nature focused on industrial application of scientific results to pilots and at plant level.
The casthouse operation session, fenced to the smelter boundary, introduced last year will be further developed.
Final abstract submission on 15 March 2024 (This deadline will not be extended)
