The 12th INALCO conference will be held at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, in Montréal, Québec, Canada, in conjunction with REGAL Students’ Day 2013, AluSolutions, Recyc-Québec, and Mission Design, all part of the Canadian International Aluminium Conference (CIAC), the flagship of a week-long series of events all related to aluminium. Events are scheduled from October 21 through October 25, 2013, and will feature the respective conferences, along with exhibits, tours, social functions, and additional aluminium-themed workshops.
INALCO will feature keynote lectures by invited speakers, as well as oral and poster presentations of papers submitted by thought leaders within industry and academia.
Architecture, Construction, Design, Transport, and New Applications are among the topics to be considered.
The proceedings of INALCO 2013 will be published during the conference.
ATTEND INALCO • STAY LONGER AND BENEFIT FROM A WEEK-LONG SERIES OF EVENTS!
INALCO 2013 will be held at the Palais des congrès de Montréal on October 21st & 22nd in conjunction with the Canadian International Aluminium Conference (CIAC). The CIAC is the flagship of a week-long series of events all related to aluminium. The CIAC will be the host of a 3-day exhibition bringing together local,national and international exhibitors. A series of industrial visits, workshops and social function are also part of the program.
Several technical courses on aluminium will be given during the week. Mr. Denis Beaulieu will present his course: Design of Aluminium Structures, a course that provides a first glance at the design of aluminium structures with extensive information on the main characteristics of structural aluminium. Mr. Maurice Duval, scientific director at the CQRDA will present: Aluminium and transformation and Mr. Alain Desrochers will give his course on Design for aluminium in light weight vehicles structures. The Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) will give its course Excellence in Extrusion twice during the week.
Students & engineers: these hours could be eligible as continuing education required by the OIQ.

Aluminium alloys and light metals are widely utilized for building and civil engineering structures, aircraft, storage tanks, rolling stock, automotive and marine applications because of their light weight, relatively high strength-to-weight ratio, ease of forming (through such technologies as extrusion), and good corrosion resistance. Bolting, welding and bonding are the most important, versatile and practical joining processes for these constructions.
The objective of the International Aluminium Conference (INALCO) is to present and discuss topics relevant for various products and constructions in aluminium through the exchange of knowledge and experience of engineers and researchers in a variety of fields worldwide.
The first International Conference of welded products and constructions with aluminium alloys was held at Cleveland, USA in 1979 and established as INALCO at the second conference held in Munich, Germany in 1982. Since then these conferences have been held every three years at different locations all over the world.
The INALCO 2013 conference presents a wide scope of information and experience in all aspects concerning aluminium applications in the above six fields.
The INALCO conferences are highly successful and well recognized by engineers, architects, researchers, and scientists from many countries working for research and academic organizations, as well as specialists within many industries including marine, civil, architectural, transportation and other applications.
