The Extrusion Technology for Aluminum Profiles Foundation (ET Foundation) is seeking papers to be considered for presentation at the Twelfth International Aluminum Extrusion Technology Seminar—ET ’20, scheduled for May 19-21, 2020 in Orlando, Florida, USA. The Call for Abstracts has been issued to the international aluminum extrusion industry and the ET Foundation is accepting abstract submissions exclusively via an online portal accessible on the ET ’20 website at The deadline to submit abstracts is February 28, 2019.

Presentations at ET ’20 will address topics specifically related to aluminum extrusion such as new processes or techniques, the use of new and updated equipment, best practices, sustainability and environmental issues, market developments, product applications, metallurgical and manufacturing research, emerging technology, and more.

Selected authors will be invited to submit technical papers based on abstracts reviewed by the ET Seminar Committee, which is comprised of aluminum extrusion industry professionals and academics involved in extrusion and related research. Final manuscripts will be accepted based on relevance, usefulness, uniqueness, accuracy, focus, quality, and noncommercial tone and content.

Papers of a technical, practical, operational or theoretical nature will be invited for ET ‘20. While original research is the hallmark of the ET Seminar, the Committee also seeks review papers that analyze and summarize previously published literature. Renowned experts are prominent among ET authors, although not every author needs to have a lengthy set of credentials. Solid common sense work reflecting real-world extrusion practice is welcome.

Accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings of ET '20, distributed to all delegates. Read the full news release...
