Call for Abstracts for the 43rd Conference of the International Deep Drawing Research Group,
IDDRG 2024, held on 12 – 15th March 2024 in Melbourne, Australia.
Please note that for 2024, the conference is a little earlier than usual (early March, instead of June/July), so that you can catch the end of our beautiful summer Down Under!
Melbourne is the capital of the State of Victoria in Australia. It is currently the second largest city in Australia (approx. 5M in greater Melbourne). One of the world’s most multi-cultural cities, it has had a large influence from European migration (espresso coffee!!), as well as being the self-proclaimed Sporting capital of the world – hosting the Australian Open Tennis and Formula 1 race. In the 2010s Melbourne was listed as one of the world’s most liveable cities. During the 20th century Melbourne was one of the manufacturing centres for Australia. Melbourne was the home of the Australian Automotive industry. Holden – General Motors and Toyota (Australia) had manufacturing and engineering based in Melbourne, while Ford Australia manufacturing was centred in nearby Geelong since the early 1920s. Ford Australia still designs, engineers, and tests the Ranger platform from Melbourne. Melbourne remains the base for large manufacturers, such as Boeing and Kenworth PACCAR.
The venue is the Deakin Downtown campus in the “New York” end of Collins Street (Melbourne City Centre) – Level 12, Tower 2, Collins Square, 727 Collins Street, Melbourne. Deakin Downtown offers the next level of sophisticated, technology-rich, flexible spaces for functions, seminars, conferences, meetings, staff training days, awards evenings and networking and cocktail events.
