– The conference was greatly appreciated. The visitors liked the environment in Kulturens hus, the interesting exhibitions, the boat trip, the conference banquet and, not least, the sessions. All participants I talked to planned to visit the next conference in two years. A big thanks to our PhD-students and undergraduate students who ensured that the event worked to 100 per cent, says Professor Mats Oldenburg, host of the conference.
A recurring theme at the conference was about processes and new high-performance materials that will meet future challenges with regard to climate and security.
– The electrification of the transport sector means, for example, that we have to find new technologies and materials for the installation and protection of heavy batteries. The conference also presented studies on fatigue properties in hot-formed and press-hardened steels that will be very useful in future applications, says Mats Oldenburg.
The next CHS2 conference will take place in Barcelona in 2021.
