The Conference was organized by University of Zagreb Faculty of Metallurgy in cooperation with University of Ljubljana Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering, Ljubljana, Slovenia, Rio Tinto Iron & Titanium GmbH, Eschborn, Germany, Pro Ferrum d.o.o., Rijeka, Croatia, Elkem AS, Oslo, Norway and Petrokemija d.d., Kutina, Croatia and under the high auspices of University of Zagreb, Ministry of Science, Education and Sports of Republic of Croatia, Croatian Foundry Association (HULJ), AD klaster, Mittel Europäische Giesserei Initiative (MEGI), Chamber of Commerce of Croatia, Sisak‐Moslavina County and City of Sisak. The priority of the Conference was increasing of foundry competitiveness by rationalization and optimization of casting production based on results of researches and new scientific and professional findings, primarily related to the conceptions of contemporary materials and technologies development. Conference was attended by 180 participants from 14 countries (Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland, Rumania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, United Kingdom and Croatia). Also, 20 students of the Faculty of Metallurgy were present on the Conference (students of undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate study) as authors or co‐authors of five papers.

Technologists Mr Šefik Selman, BSc, Mr Jovo Vranjković, BSc And Mr Aleš Strmole, BSc made an introduction in production of grey and ductile cast iron in green sand moulds produced by air impulse. Students obtained an opportunity to see the production preparation from the casting drawing and 3D construction to the simulation of pouring, gating and solidification and finally rapid prototyping. Students get familiar with the different type of core production, production of tools i.e. models for automatic moulding and high volume casting production. Student’s Centre Sisak has given the financial support in participation of the students at the Conference. th
