For its 42nd International Conference and Exhibition, ICSOBA is inviting you to return to the home turf of Paul Héroult and the place of one of the first plants where Karl Josef Bayer implemented his patented process of alumina extraction from bauxite. 

The conference is planned in the same format as last two years with authors delivering their presentation physically. The presentations will be broadcast live for the participants who cannot attend in-person. 

The conference will take place in Lyon (France) from 27 to 31 October 2024.
