On September 20, 2018, the First Sino-Austrian Postgraduate Symposium was jointly organized by the Institute of Materials and Metallurgy, the State Key Laboratory of Refractory and Metallurgy, the National Joint Research Center of High Temperature Materials and Furnace Lining Technology and the International Exchange and Cooperation Office. It was held in the conference room of the steel building of Qingshan campus, our school. Professor Ma Guojun, Director of Graduate School, Professor Wang Zhoufu, Deputy Director of the State Key Laboratory of Refractory Materials and Metallurgy, Professor Cheng Changgui, Vice-Dean of the Institute of Materials and Metallurgy, and Professor Luo Yuanping, Vice-Director of International Exchange and Cooperation, attended the opening ceremony, which was presided over by Professor Wei Yaow

In his speech, Director Ma reviewed the cooperation between the two schools over the past 10 years and their achievements. He also introduced the original intention of holding the Sino-Austrian Graduate Student Symposium. He hoped that the two sides could further enhance understanding, deepen friendship and strengthen cooperation through this event. In his speech on behalf of the Austrian side, Professor Kim Shengli affirmed the achievements of bilateral cooperation and congratulated the convening of the symposium. He hoped that the two sides would follow the principle of win-win cooperation and proceed from their respective development needs to push forward bilateral cooperation.

5 doctoral candidates from the University of Austria, and 5 PhDs from Wuhan University of Science and Technology, have made 10 academic reports covering the composition and microstructure design of refractory materials, the preparation and characterization of lightweight foam ceramics, the research methods of high-temperature in situ crystallization behavior, the discrete element method and the finite element simulation technology in refractory materials. Application, high temperature mechanical behavior of refractories and hydration mechanism of new binders for refractory castables. More than 50 teachers and students from the School of Materials and Metallurgy participated in the seminar and held heated discussions on issues of interest, with a strong academic atmosphere.

China and Austria have established and maintained a good cooperative partnership since 2008, and have made remarkable achievements in mutual recognition of undergraduate credits, cooperative application for scientific research projects, joint application for international joint laboratories and experimental research conducted by mutual scholars. The seminar aims to further promote bilateral cooperation to a wider and deeper level, and to seek potential cooperation points in future education and scientific research. This symposium has opened the door for the Please Come in academic exchanges among engineering majors in our university. It has provided the opportunity for our students to communicate face-to-face with their counterparts abroad. It has also provided the opportunity for foreign students to get to know our university deeply and to cultivate and exercise the international academic exchange ability of our graduate students.

Before the seminar, the Austrian delegation visited our school history museum and the State Key Laboratory of refractories and metallurgy.
