Current situation concerning MEFORM2020

Dear Sirs and Madams,

Due to the uncertain situation caused by the steady increase in CoVid 19 infections and based on the cancellation of some lecturers and several participants, we have decided with a heavy heart to extend the MEFORM to

26 and 27 November 2020

We ask for your understanding for our decision, which we have taken in the interest of the health of all those involved in MEFORM.

We hope that the new date will also appeal to you and that you would like to experience a successful MEFORM in November together with us.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at meform2020atimf [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de



Werkstoffkennwerte: Bestimmung, Modellierung und Anwendung


The theme of the MEFORM 2020

MEFORM 2020 deals with the topic of material properties, their determination, modelling and application.

The topic of MEFORM 2020 therefore deals with the traditional topics of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg and the Institut für Metallformung:

Datengenerierung und Analyse

Data generation and analysis

Which application-oriented measuring methods are currently being developed?

How can material characteristics be obtained from a production process?

How can the influence of the material structure on the forming forces be measured and evaluated?

Deep Learning


Modelling and Deep Learning

How complex must and how simple may material models be?

How can artificial intelligence methods be used to improve process control?


Application in control systems

How accurate and how fast do material and process models have to be for process control?

How can material properties interact with control systems and what additional information is possible and necessary?

How does the microstructure development influence the process control systems and the final material and product quality?

Industry 4.0

How can the principles and methods of industry 4.0 be implemented in pilot plants and what benefits can be generated for their application in industrial environments?

How are material characteristics transferred to a digital material twin?
