FormPlanet project partners Eurecat and Lulea University of Technology are the organizers of the 8th International Conference on Hot Sheet Metal Forming on High-Performance Steel (CHS2), which will be celebrated at the World Trade Centre from Barcelona, from 30th May to 2nd June 2022.
The Conference, which was expected to be celebrated on June 2021, has been postponed due to the global pandemic situation and the uncertainties about travelling.
Call for Papers open!
Authors are invited to submit their abstracts via the conference paper submission system. The full papers will be reviewed by the members of the scientific advisory board and, if accepted, will be published in the conference proceedings.
Abstracts submission deadline is the 14th of October 2021.
Authors of already produced abstracts, can keep their publications submitted or withdraw their abstracts to update them with new content.

In recent years, the interest in thermo-mechanical forming processes of high-performance steel, and high-performance material, has grown significantly, being the automotive sector, the main actor driving this development. Press hardening of boron steels is now a mature technology and highly deployed worldwide, which has showed to be unbeatable for forming complex shape parts and easy forming of high strength materials with reduced spring-back. All these benefits offer great flexibility and opens up possibilities to implement innovative materials in new industrial applications.
In this sense, the CHS2 Conference is a great opportunity to discuss about new methodologies to move into a sustainable, versatile, reliable and efficient hot forming of high-performance materials for emerging industrial challenges.
