The organizers are very proud to invite you to the 3rd Carl Loper Conference. While the first two events featuring the name of Carl Loper, organized in Madison Wisconsin (2009) and Bilbao Spain (2019) had as main subject cast iron alone, this conference has an expanded scope to include Processing of Metallic Materials through Casting and Solidification.

This is because Professor Carl Loper’s name has become synonymous with not just cast iron, but with all facets of metalcasting. “Carl Loper” is a brand. It represents a tradition, but also the vision to go beyond the borders of the known science and engineering of metal casting, which is the goal of this conference.

Carl R. Loper Jr.
Carl R. Loper Jr. obtained BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Metallurgical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Prior to joining the university as a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, he was employed as a Plant Metallurgist at Pelton Steel Castings Co. and as a Research Metallurgist at Allis Chalmers Manufacturing Co. He was also a registered Professional Engineer, lectured and consulted internationally, and served as an Adjunct Professor of Materials at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. Carl was considered an expert in many areas of metallurgy, particularly ductile iron. He authored well over 500 technical and scientific publications, has several patents, is the co-author of a well-known text, and wrote several technical and scientific manuals. He has been internationally recognized for his engineering and scientific contributions and has received numerous awards and honours.
Carl was very involved with the American Foundry Society (AFS) and served as Chairman of the AFS Wisconsin Chapter. For his contributions to research and education he received the highest AFS honour, the Penton Gold Medal. Carl never lost his love of learning and never stopped working in the profession he loved Carl thoroughly enjoyed writing, researching, lecturing, and consulting, and particularly enjoyed mentoring his many students. During his career he served as advisor to a host of graduate students who are now spread all over the world, many of whom consider him a father figure and friend. In May of 2009 his former students and associates organized the first symposium in his honour, with the goal of reviewing the development of cast iron and celebrating the deep friendships that were developed between Carl’s metallurgy family and the entire Loper family. Carl passed away in 2010 at the age of 78.
 

Why Transilvania University and why Brasov? The simple answer is because Brasov, a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural city established in the XII-th century is one of the most important touristic cities in Romania. It is a charming, fairytale city that has its own International Airport. A recent study by the World Bank states that Brasov is a "perfect 10" city, with a developed economy, attractive architecture, and a high quality of life. Approximately 20 kilometres from the city is Bran Castle, the place where the legend of Dracula was born. Bran Castle is one of Romania's most famous tourist attractions globally. And then, Brasov is the location of Transilvania University that boasts 20,000 students studying in 18 colleges (faculties) and pursuing undergraduate and master's degree programs in all fundamental fields including engineering sciences, humanities, social sciences, exact sciences, medicine, arts, physical education, and sports. In addition, there are no less than 22 doctoral study fields. Transilvania University has a 25-year tradition in organizing international conferences. Indeed, the 13th International Conference on Materials Science and Engineering - BraMat 2024 – which took place in March 2024 in Brasov, was a real success.
