The International Conference on the Technology of Plasticity (ICTP), known as the 'Olympics of metal forming', will be held from 17 - 22 September 2017. The conference will be hosted by the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge. This is the first time ICTP has been held in the United Kingdom.

ICTP is where the world’s leading researchers share their most important advances, where theory meets advanced practice and where the insights of the most experienced practioners become the inspiration for the next generation. 

In addition, delegates will have an unparalled opportunity to explore this famous and beautiful university city. Accommodation will be offered in the historical Colleges of the University.

There can be no better way to experience the atmosphere of Cambridge, than to stay in one of the beautiful old Colleges. We offer a unique opportunity for delegates to stay in six of the most historic Colleges.
