The conference will provide the first opportunity for researchers and engineers in the field of ironmaking to focus on comprehensive and dedicated presentations and discussions regarding the iron ore agglomeration processes and the properties of agglomerates. It will contribute the advancement of the agglomeration technology vital for high efficiency operation of the blast furnace. The conference will be held in Matsue City, a typical mythological place, located in the northern region of Western Japan. It is apposite to the venue of the conference since the traditional ironmaking technology called “Tatara” has been alive there since long ago, which has produced high-quality steel, known as “Tama-Hagane”.
