Welcome Message

It is our great honor to announce the 1st International Symposium on Iron One Agglomerates (SynOre2022) to be held in Matsue, Japan from November 22nd to 26th in 2022. 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”. We are looking forward to seeing you in Matsue for our inspiring meeting.
