European Conference on Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering 2024
(and A3TS 50th Congress)
June 5-7, 2024  I  Toulouse, France

The ECHT 2024 Conference and the 50th Annual A3TS Congress will take place together in Toulouse, France June 5-7, 2024. The focus will be on processes and technologies for a sustainable future in transport and industry. The conference will deal with all fields of heat treatment and surface engineering: heat treatment of metals (iron and steel, non-ferrous alloys); thermochemical treatment of metals; coatings and surface treatments; coatings and surface treatments including dry treatment operations (PVD, CVD, plasma, thermal spraying, etc.); and wet treatment operations (electrochemistry, etc.). Specific sessions will be devoted to the aerospace industry. Additional focus areas include:

  • Contribution of innovative heat and thermochemical treatments to EU climate goals.
  • Digital technologies in heat treatment and surface engineering industries.
  • Coatings made from enhanced materials for electrical and thermal conductivity.
  • Surface engineering to address environmental constraints.

New needs in tribological properties: an open challenge for heat treatment and surface engineering.

29th IFHTSE Congress
September 30-October 3, 2024  I  Cleveland, Ohio

The ASM Heat Treating Society (HTS) and the International Federation for Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering (IFHTSE) present the 29th IFHTSE World Congress, a premier global event dedicated to advancing the fields of heat treatment and surface engineering. Co-located with ASM’s annual meeting, IMAT 2024, the congress is scheduled for September 30-October 3, 2024 in Cleveland, Ohio.

The 2024 IFHTSE World Congress revolves around the theme “Innovations in Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering for a Sustainable Future.” Emphasizing the critical role of these technologies in shaping a sustainable world, the event will explore the latest developments, breakthroughs, and practices that can enhance the efficiency, performance, and environmental impact of heat treatment and surface engineering processes. In addition, traditional heat-treating topics will be offered.

Important dates:

First Draft of Manuscript Due: May 17, 2024.

Editor Feedback to Authors: June 14, 2024.

Final Manuscripts Due: June 28, 2024.

Third International Conference on Quenching and Distortion Engineering
May 6-8, 2025  I  Vancouver, Canada

This event will be held in conjunction with AeroMat 2025. This is a continuation of the successful Distortion Engineering conference series and the Quenching and Distortion conference series. The first QDE was in Chicago in 2012 and has occurred at approximately five-year intervals. There is a strong focus on the effects of residual stress during manufacturing and methods to control distortion and residual stress. The call for papers is expected in the next few months.

IFHTSE is a federation of organizations not individuals. There are three groups of members: scientific or technical societies and associations, universities and registered research institutes, and companies.
