5th International Conference on Light Materials - Science and Technology LightMAT 2023

We are looking forward to working with you over three days to get a comprehensive overview and new insights into the three most essential light metals, Aluminum, Magnesium, and Titanium, and their combinatio

Conference Chairs:

Prof. Dr. Ida Westermann - Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway

Prof. Dr. Bjørn Holmedal - Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), ​​Trondheim, Norway

Dr.Julie Lévesque - Québec Metallurgy Center, Canada


The materials are viewed individually or in multi-material designs, including processing, joining, and corrosion protection. In addition, LightMAT 2023 will focus on Eco-Efficiency in materials and processes. In this context, we address the question: What are the innovative research business models for materials and material processes shearing with industrial needs for contributing to the accelerated material circularity, sustainability, and also to the dematerialization of our economy related to less dependency on primary materials?

LightMAT 2023 provides a platform for academic and industrial researchers, scientists, and engineers to present and discuss the recent development and progress made in Magnesium, Aluminium, Titanium and their alloys and materials combinations. Beyond the metals standard processes and primary applications are addressed, intended to provide comparison and cross-fertilization, giving a comprehensive overview of individual advances, challenges, and highlights, covering:

Conventional and advanced lightweight applications and products in automotive, aerospace, and other relevant transport and applications

Fundamental aspects of the three metallic lightweight materials and their alloys, their processing and (physical) metallurgy issues involved

Microstructure evolution, related properties, and advanced simulation

Industrial fabrication, processing, joining, and corrosion protection issues

Additive Manufacturing of metallic structures enabling novel lightweight designs

Formability and advanced forming of light alloys to shape complex parts

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
