  The "JSTP International Prize for R&D in Precision Forging" was established in 1996 to promote research and development in precision forging and other net shape forming methods with a fund donated by Nichidai Corporation. The 10th prize will be presented at the 14th ICTP (Mandelieu-La Napoule, France) in September 2023. As an associated event of the prize, an "International Seminar on Precision Forging" (ISPF) will be held in Kyoto, Japan on 11th–14th March, 2024.

Past winners of JSTP International Prize:
1st (1996)  Prof. H. Kudo and Prof. T. Altan 
2nd (1999) Prof. K. Lange and Dr. H. Pugh
3rd (2002) Prof. K. Kondo and Prof. M. Geiger
4th (2005) Prof. N. Bay and Prof. K. Osakada 
5th (2008) Prof. T.A. Dean and Prof. R. Kopp 
6th (2011) Prof. J.-L. Chenot and Prof. T. Nakamura 
7th (2014) Prof. A.E. Tekkaya and Prof. K. Mori 
8th (2017) Prof. C.-G. Kang and Prof. T. Ishikawa 
9th (2021) Prof. J.M. Allwood and Prof. P.A.F. Martins 
10th (2023) Prof. P. Groche and Prof. J. Yanagimoto 

  The seminar consists of keynote lectures by the prize winners and guest speakers, and oral/poster presentations by invited young researchers/engineers in order to lead the new technology in precision forging. Factory visit (Nichidai Corporation and some hot/cold forging factories) will be arranged.

About 30 young researchers/engineers under 35 years old will be invited to the seminar by providing travel grants. The invited young researchers/engineers have to present their papers/posters at the seminar.

Travel grant for young researchers / engineers   
  About 30 young researchers/engineers under 35 years old will be invited to the seminar with the travel grants. They are widely invited and welcomed from various research fields in "plastic working (forging, extrusion, rolling, sheet forming and so on)". Those who are invited have to present their research work by oral/poster presentation at the seminar. They have to submit extended abstract of their research work for the proceedings of the seminar.

The lowest international airfare from the nearest airport of the working place to the seminar venue and the hotel charge during the seminar will be granted. For the application to the grant, please use the attached application form. The result whether the applicant is invited with travel grant or no, and the amount of the grant will be notified until December 2023.

Application form for travel grant: [MS Word] : Closed

General participants 
    About 50 experienced researchers/engineers (regardless their ages) are welcome to join the seminar as the general participants. They are expected to give some comments and discussions at the seminar. The seminar will be a good opportunity to acquire the up-to-date information on precision forging technology. For general participants, the accommodations and meals will be arranged, but the expenses for the travel, hotel fees and meals are not granted.

Application form for general participants: [MS Word] : dead line is Janualy 31st, 2024
