Call for Abstracts

The ET Seminar Committee is pleased to invite paper abstracts for possible presentation at the Thirteenth International Aluminum Extrusion Technology Seminar—ET ’24, scheduled for April 30 through May 2, 2024, in Orlando, Florida, USA.

While the primary focus of ET is scientific and technical, papers of a practical, operational, or theoretical nature are invited as well. Presenters are encouraged to challenge every facet of the extrusion industry to raise its level of expectations, quality, and performance.

Late Entries

The deadline to submit ET '24 abstracts has passed. However, late entries may be considered, especially for the new Extrusion Design and Innovation Track.

The Program

The ET program has been expanded to include seven new and improved session tracks. Authors are encouraged to submit paper abstracts of no more than 150 words to be considered for presentation, which will be arranged in the following seven tracks:

  • Alloys & Billet Process
  • Extrusion Equipment
  • Extrusion & Die Process Application
  • Extrusion & Die R&D
  • Extrusion Finishes & Fabrication
  • Sustainability & Management
  • Extrusion Design & Innovation

New Track

The Extrusion Design & Innovation Track highlights how end users and extruders often work together to create the most innovative and pioneering design applications for aluminum extrusions. The track will offer unique opportunities for authors to showcase extrusion solutions through context studies, streamlined design parameters, material substitution, functionality case studies, and more.

Abstracts are invited from extruders and end users alike, covering such topics as component and product innovations, new and novel extrusion applications, applications leading to process improvements, etc.
