Association of International Roll Pass Designers and Rolling Mill Engineers e.V.
AIKW Conference 2020
Dear AIKW members and conference participants,
during the last AIKW conference in Treviso / Italy we announced the next conference for autumn 2020 in Slovenia.
The conditions for holding a conference have changed dramatically in the meantime due to the spreading corona pandemic. We are only at the beginning of a global pandemic, the impact of which on economic, cultural and social development cannot yet be estimated. Many countries have taken drastic measures, such as assembly bans and restrictions on contacts, to reduce the rapid increase in the number of infected people and to avoid overloading the health systems in the respective countries.
It is not yet clear how the pandemic will develop and which measures the individual countries will prescribe in the next months. We assume that assembly bans will continue to apply to larger groups, especially for meetings with participants from different countries.
Therefore, after a detailed discussion, the AIKW board has decided to cancel the AIKW conference planned for 2020 in Slovenia.
We ask for your understanding for this decision, which is not easy for us either, and we look forward to welcoming you to our next AIKW conference in 2021.
We wish you and your families to stay healthy and to be protected from health risks as much as possible.
The AIKW board

The AIKW is a registered professional organization for roll pass designers and rolling mill engineers with a main emphasis in the field of hot rolled long products. The aim of the Association is to maintain and to deepen the members' skills acquired during theit basic training and subsequent practical work and to promote the exchange of experience between members.
In this respect, regular scientific conferences with presentations on specific topical subjects and plant visits make an important contribution. International speakers are invited to these conferences to give presentations on specific subjects of rolling mill technology and adjacent areas of production engineering, plant engineering and organization.
In addition to members, any interested individual working in the steel industry or in the field of mechanical engineering, plant engineering or in the supplying industry, as well as university and polytechnic students and students from technical and master craftspeople schools may participate in the conferences and visits offered.
The Association is a non-profit organisation and does not pursue own financial interests.
Only natural persons working as roll pass designers, engineers, technicians or masters in rolling mills or adjacent fields, regardless of their nationality or affiliation to parties or other associations, may become members of the AIKW. For detailed information please refer to our statutes, which are available for download.
