Call for Papers "InCeight Casting C8" Calls for Paper Submissions by May 15
Digitization in product development and production requires foundries and users to break new ground, to process and assess an increasing amount of measurement data. It is of high interest to look at this holistic product value creation. The second congress "InCeight Casting C8" from March 6 to 8, 2023 will offer this interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and interests and thus contribute to a common understanding of the diverse different requirements for cast components. The call for papers is open now until May 15, 2022.
Looking at Holistic Product Value Creation
If cast components are to be further optimized in terms of lightweight construction, efficiency and sustainability, an important step is to drive forward networking within the disciplines involved in the product development process for cast components. This also requires a closer exchange between industry and research.
With this in mind, the "InCeight Casting C8" congress invites submissions by May 15, 2022, of cross-disciplinary technical papers that enable a targeted exchange on the topics of "Design and Product Development," "Foundry Technology," "Fatigue Strength" and "Non-destructive Testing."
Submissions will be reviewed by a scientific program committee and, once accepted, will be published in a citable conference proceedings, including open access. The central goal of the congress is to create networks to reach beyond one's own discipline to gain a sense and understanding of each other's concerns, hardships and needs as they relate to the design, dimensioning, simulation, casting or quality assurance of any cast component.
The good response to the first "InCeight Casting C8" in 2021 is confirmation for the organizer that the event concept struck a strong chord with the industry. "InCeight Casting C8" provides the necessary space for dialog and discussion and thus contributes to a common understanding of the complex product value creation in the foundry industry. "Participants will be encouraged to take collaborative initiatives that strengthen competitiveness in the industry," says Dr. Christoph Bleicher, the congress manager from Fraunhofer LBF.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF in Darmstadt initiated the "InCeight Casting C8" congress with accompanying trade exhibition. The German Foundry Industry Association BDG, the German Society for Non-Destructive Testing DGZfP, Germanischer Lloyd Industrial Services GmbH and the German Engineering Federation VDMA support the congress.
