8th International Conference on Hot Sheet Metal Forming of High-Performance Steel
30 May-2 June, 2022, Barcelona, Spain

The biannual CHS2 conference series has after seven very successful conferences since 2008 grown into the leading platform for scientific exchange in hot forming technologies.
The first conference was held in 2008 in Kassel (Germany) and up to the 7th edition in 2019 in Luleå (Sweden) new topics and interests steadily increased and settle down in every conference edition. In the 7th edition the industrial community brought their recent developments in new materials, new sheet coatings, joining technologies and process monitoring. In addition, more fundamental works dealing with process modelling, fatigue and fracture and physical metallurgy were presented by the academia to strength the basis for future industrial developments.

The 8th CHS2 edition will be held in Barcelona (Spain) and aims to keep pushing the innovation trends in hot sheet metal forming  echnologies. Apart from the Mediterranean Sea breeze and warm hospitality of the city, the industrial area around Barcelona is one of the most active in press hardening technologies in the South of Europe. Many relevant actors in press hardening (carmakers, part makers, tool makers, etc.) have their production and R&D facilities in this area, with the research support of academia.

The year 2020 has been a long break without presential meetings. We all need to restart the networking activities we do every 2 years in the CHS2 conference series. Consequently, we invite the specialists from all over the world to the 8th International Conference on Hot Sheet Metal Forming of High-Performance Steel CHS2 2022. This will be the opportunity to continue with the knowledge exchange and to benefit from each other’s  experience and expertise, under the warm environment of Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea shore. The conference will be organized by Eurecat, the Technology Centre of Catalonia, together with the Luleå University of Technology.
