Queenstown, New Zealand

Dec 2nd-7th 2018 


Australasian Aluminium Smelting Technology Conference

AASTC2018 - Sharing Knowledge and Discussing Practical Issues.

The Australasian Aluminium Smelting Technology Conference is a unique opportunity to meet colleagues within the aluminium industry, exchange concerns and share knowledge. As well as contributed papers, this conference is also famous for its in-depth examination and discussion of various topics that are of interest to the aluminium industry.


In addition to the excitement of the professional discussions, the conference is also renowned for its social interactions, including the traditional golf tournament at the start of the conference and the karaoke competition towards the end of the conference.


The 12th AASTC also marks 20 years since first time the conference was held outside of Australia for the 6th AASTC. Coincidentally, the 12th AASTC will also be held at the same location as the 6th AASTC at the Millennium Hotel Queenstown, New Zealand.
