Dear colleagues, ICFG members, accompanying persons and guests,

Welcome to the 50th ICFG Plenary Meeting and celebrate the 50th anniversary of ICFG in Shanghai!

It was the first time for ICFG to organize the Plenary Meeting in China in 2009. Eight years passed, we warmly welcome ICFG Plenary Meeting again. On September 3rd to 6th, 2017, the Plenary Meeting of ICFG will be held again in Shanghai.

Fifty years ago, a group of experts in cold forging, together with other distinguished members of the International Institution for Production Engineering Research (CIRP), founded the International Cold Forging Group (ICFG) with the objective “promulgating the economic advancement of cold forging by encouraging and coordinating national and international cooperation, by stimulating research and by disseminating knowledge of relevant processes and sciences”.

In the past three decades, the precision forging in China is well and rapidly developed, the innovation is strong needed for both academia and industry. The 50th ICFG Plenary Meeting can offer a good opportunity to share and exchange knowledge and experience at home and abroad.

We hereby invite you to participate in the meeting and to contribute to the program by submitting a paper if possible. Please feel free to encourage young colleagues of yours to present their results.

The city of Shanghai is one of the largest cities in China, and it is also the business and financial center as well as one of the science-innovation centers of the country. The modern skyscrapers meet the traditional architecture, different living styles merged together. It is not only an international metropolis, but also an amazing place deserving deep exploration.

Again, welcome to the 50th ICFG Plenary Meeting in Shanghai!

Prof. Zhen Zhao

Host of the 50th ICFG Plenary Meeting in Shanghai, China
