2 Conferences - 1 Location 29. August - 2. September 2022, Bremen – Germany

8th ECIC European Coke and Ironmaking Congress

9th ICSTI International Conference on Science and Technology of Ironmaking


ECIC & ICSTI 2022 postponed to 29 August - 2 September 2022

Monitoring the ongoing situation in Europe and the rest of the world the VDEh in consultation with the program committee and partners has decided to postpone ECIC & ICSTI to 29  August - 2 September 2022.
Since international travel will still be very difficult at the beginning of next year, a well-attended and therefore successful event in March gets more and more unlikely.

The new date of the event will be
29 August - 2 September 2022.
The location of Bremen and the event venue will remain the same.

We are aware of the inconvenience for everyone involved, but health and safety are the highest priority.
VDEh with support of TEMA is committed to your success – and will in any case organize a perfect conference for you. We are sure, that you will understand this necessary decision and hope that you will support this event as strongly as before and looking forward to meeting you in Bremen in March.
