After a few years of restrictions due to the pandemic, the S2P conference is back in full attendance mode!

On behalf of the organising committee, you are invited  to the 17th International Conference on Semi-Solid Processing of Alloys and Composites (S2P2023), which will be held in Brescia, Italy, from 6 to 8 September 2023.

The 17th S2P International Conference will focus on the advancement of fundamental knowledge and the development of materials and industrial processes for the semi-solid manufacturing of high performance metal components. This conference continues a successful series of conferences on the semi-solid processing of alloys and composites that began in 1990.

The organising office looks forward to welcoming you in Italy!
