2017 Australian Foundry Institute National Conference
Venue: Adelaide Oval
Dates: Friday 27th, Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th October 2017
The redeveloped Adelaide Oval offers a unique blend of new and old, carefully integrating the latest in stadium design with famous features such as the heritage scoreboard, century-old Moreton Bay Fig trees, the grassed northern mound and more. These elements form an embedded museum, with integrated points of interest and historical features bringing the whole stadium to life.
The Oval is just across the Torrens Lake from Adelaide CBD with easy access and many top class hotels within strolling distance.
The program will be a mix of business and foundry related topics in a “mini conference” format. Our main presenter will be Professor John Campbell OBE who will be delivering a series of seminars.
John Campbell, OBE, is a British engineer and one of the world’s leading experts in the casting industry with approximately 150 papers, and 20 patents. Campbell holds two Masters degrees from University of Cambridge and University of Sheffield, as well as two doctorates from University of Birmingham. He is a fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, and he was appointed to the chair of Casting Technology at University of Birmingham. The Institute of Cast Metals Engineers has named the “John Campbell Medal” after him.
