Call for Papers - InCeight Casting C8 - 2025

"InCeight Casting C8" interdisciplinary network for the foundry industry, March 5-7, 2025

The focus of the presentations is on linking methods and expertise from different disciplines with the aim of developing a common understanding of the various requirements for high-performance and efficient cast products.

Call for Papers until May 15, 2024

Presentations on efficient lightweight constructions, new ideas in product development and findings from fatigue strength, simulation, non-destructive testing and foundry technology make up the program. Interested parties from the fields of research and development, design, production and quality assurance in energy technology, mechanical and plant engineering or vehicle construction are invited to contribute their presentation topic.

All contributions will be published in a citable conference volume and will be available as open source after one year.

The international congress "InCeight Casting C8" contributes to active networking and offers a targeted exchange of all disciplines involved in the product development process. The Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF in Darmstadt organized this congress for the first time in 2021. The Federal Association of the German Foundry Industry BDG, the German Society for Non-Destructive Testing DGZfP, the Det Norske Veritas Group DNV and the German Engineering Federation VDMA support this congress.

The central aim of the congress is to create networks in order to gain a feeling for and understanding of the concerns, needs and requirements of others beyond one's own discipline, which concern them in the design, dimensioning, simulation, casting or quality assurance of each component. Feedback from the first congress confirms the concept: "The participants in the interdisciplinary forum for casting come in roughly equal numbers from foundries, casting users and research - perfect for an overarching exchange", and "We are convinced by the content concept and see the 'InCeight Casting' congress as a relevant event for our industry".
