Third Australian Ironmaking Materials Symposium


The third Australian ironmaking materials symposium brought together 28 key researchers from across industry and academia to share research results and to identify and exploit synergies between research groups. Jointly organised by the ARC Iron Ore and Steel Hubs, the symposium was held in Newcastle with attendees from BHP, BlueScope Steel, Liberty Primary Steel (via Skype), CSIRO and the Universities of Newcastle, Wollongong, and Queensland.
