The International Process Metallurgy Conference (IPMC) is a scientific forum that brings together participants from across the globe to share the latest advancements, knowledge, and innovations in metallurgical processes, and to foster the use of best practices. The Department of Metallurgical Engineering at the Faculty of Mining and Petroleum Engineering, Institut Teknologi Bandung has organized this biennial conference since 2008, with support from The Indonesian Metallurgical Profession Association (Prometindo) and Institution of Engineers Indonesia,  (BKT Metalurgi PII).


The previous IPMC event was a resounding success, with 42 scientific articles indexed in SCOPUS. This year, IPMC 2023 is hosting an international seminar forum that will showcase and discuss the latest developments and technological innovations in metallurgical processes. The conference aims to strengthen networks and synergies among industry practitioners, academics, researchers, and policymakers involved in the metallurgical industry, enabling fruitful collaborations and driving technological advancements.
