First conference in brief

The First Conference - Sophia Antipolis, France - March 17/20, 1998

The first ESAFORM Conference was organised by the Ecole des Mines de Paris and held at Sophia Antipolis, France. The aim of that conference was to gather experts working on different materials and processes with various approaches, in order to stimulate scientific exchanges.

The final number of participants taking part was 137, coming from 23 European countries. The number of contributed papers was 71 of which 39 were invited speakers and also nineteen posters were presented.

The conference was sponsored by the Conseil Général des Alpes-Maritimes, the French Ministry of Education, Research and Technology, as well as by the Ecole des Mines de Paris, plus two private companies, Sciences and Computers Consultants, and Transvalor, all to whom we send our gratitude.

Two Round Tables were organised on:

  • New Scientific and Technical Trends in Material Forming : Nine informal networks have been created on the different topics and Education
  • Education and Diffusion of Knowledge

The main conclusions were:

  • to collect information about existing courses on Material Forming and identify those open to other European countries.
  • to use the Socrates networks for the exchanges of students.
  • to promote the existing programs (EUPOCO, NATO ASI ...).
  • to create advanced short courses in connection with the ESAFORM annual meeting.
