The former ATS French Steel Association conference is returning to Paris in December.

The last time the annual technical conference of the French Steel Association took place was in December 2007.

Following the financial crisis which became evident in Q4 2008 the regular event which took place in Paris each December was cancelled and the organisiing body, the Association Technique de la Sidérurgie Française (ATS) was disbanded.

Now, in a new vote of confidence in Europe’s steel industry the FFA (Fédération Française de l’Acier – French Steel Federation) is restarting the event and, in 2012, it will take place on 18, 19 December in Paris under the auspices of its technical publication, ‘The Journées Sidérurgiques Internationales’ (JSI).

This will once again provide the opportunity for technical exchanges in France on an international scale.

Offers to present papers should be made to:
