<font size="2">More than 250 participants came to listen to the lectures of different application areas of founding. In the opening speech Prof. Dr. Kallien, director of GTA, thanked the company Funk Eisengießerei from Aalen for donation of the emission-spectrometer, and the company MAGMA for their donation of 15 simulation-programmes for the education of the students. </font>

<font size="2">The first speaker, Martin Severing, the plant manager of SHW Casting Technologies GmbH in Wasseralfingen, reffered about: “Optimization of a big ductile iron casting with MAGMAfrontier“.</font>

<font size="2">Dr. Marcel Pfitzer from the company Handtmann in Biberach, once a student of the university Aalen, gave a review about his graduation topic “Heat transfer determination in pressure die casting”.</font>

<font size="2">Dr. Herbert Löblich from the Institut of Foundry Technology in Düsseldorf reported in his lecture about “Ferrous metallurgy in the resource shortage environment” and gave useful information for example how to produce good castings with less quality steel scrap. </font>

<font size="2">The last speaker Dr. Krapohl of the KW Consulting Group, took a very interesting speech about stock-free casting production and optimally way of changing tools, which aroused big interest in the audience.</font>

<font size="2">Following these series of lectures 12 students provided an insight into the current university activities by presenting their bachelor and degrees dissertations. For many of them it was the first- even short- public speech opportunity.</font>

<font size="2">The umbrella association of the German non-ferrous metal foundries (GDM) awarded Stefan Seidel for the best degree dissertation contributing to production of copper rotors. </font>

<font size="2">The closing of the Barbara colloquium was crowned by the foundry-evening in the foundry laboratory. Once again it was a great opportunity for interesting conversations between students and foundry industry representatives.<br>&nbsp;</font>
