General Information

IFHTSE Congress is one of the most important and authoritative global event that provides an opportunity for specialists of leading industrial enterprises to gain access to the latest global achievements in the field of metal processing and surface engineering.

The International Federation for Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering (IFHTSE) is a not-for-profit body founded in Switzerland 16th May, 1971.

IFHTSE  is an international group of scientific/technological societies and associations, groups and companies and individuals whose primary interest is heat treatment and surface engineering.

The primary function of the IFHTSE is to promote international collaboration and communication on heat treatment and surface engineering, through the sharing of knowledge. This knowledge is communicated via conferences and international congresses held throughout the globe (

In June 2017, the decision to hold the 2019 Congress in Russia was officially approved at a meeting of the IFHTSE Governing Council Assembly. The host of the 2019 Congress is the Russian Society of Metal Science and Heat Treatment - an associate member of IFHTSE, chaired by Professor A. K. Tikhonov.

The goal is to promote the cooperation of science and production in the fields of metallurgy and heat treatment of metals and products from them in the metallurgical, automotive, machine-building, machine tool and other industries.

The objectives:

• informational coverage in the field of industrial policy of the Russian Federation,

• establishment and coverage of cooperation with domestic and international organizations on a number of issues in the field of metallurgy and heat treatment of metals and alloys,

• promoting the formation and implementation of a unified scientific and technical policy in the field of metal science and heat treatment,

• implementation of the preparation and publication of teaching materials, practical recommendations in the field of metallurgy and heat treatment of metals.
