These covered fields of forging, extrusion, drawing, sheet forming/hot-stamping, rolling/roll forming, hydro- and tube forming, micro-forming, powder technology, materials and characterisation, tooling and heat treatment, design and modelling, and other manufacturing processes. The contents dealt with new/enhanced forming processes for both conventional materials and new materials. They well reflected the state of the art of the current forming technology and gave a strong indication to the trend of developing new forming technology.
