15th International Conference on Titanium takes place in Edinburgh

The Edinburgh International Conference Centre hosted Titanium 2023 between 12-16 June.

Over the five day programme the conference hosted 500 delegates, 423 sessions and showcased 39 posters across 13 technical areas, covering resource and energy efficiency and materials 4.0. As the conference progressed, it became clear each session reinforced the importance of working together to share ideas to accelerate progress in the reuse and recycling of titanium alloys. Delegate feedback also confirmed this commitment to individually and collectively playing an essential part to limit climate change for future generations.

Prof Martin Jackson, World Titanium Conference 2023, Conference Organising Chair reflected, ‘I have thoroughly enjoyed attending and presenting at the last five World Titanium conferences. This memorable conference series always guarantees excellent value for money from a learning and networking standpoint. In my opinion, no other single meeting showcases and debates the latest applications, characterisation techniques and modelling approaches for titanium and its alloys’.

During the conference gala dinner at the National Museum of Scotland Prof Jackson announced in 2027 Germany would host the 16th World Conference on Titanium in Berlin on 12-18 September.

The 15th World Conference on Titanium continued the series of meetings that have been held every three or four years since 1968, with a return to the United Kingdom for the first time since 1995. Over the last decade the conference series has been held in three different continents – Nantes, France (Ti-2019), San Diego, USA (Ti-2015) and Beijing, China (Ti-2011).

IOM3 would like to thank both Gold and Silver sponsors who made the event possible. These include Forged Solutions Group, TiPolar, Western Superconducting, National Manufacturing Institute Scotland, Henry Royce Institute, Airbus, Rolls Royce, Böhler and Timet.
