UNITECR 2017: Registration is Open

The Organizing Committee of UNITECR 2017 has been enthusiastically working for more than a year to provide the best congress for refractory specialists from around the world, not only in the technical program but also in the social side of the meeting.

The first UNITECR (Unified International Technical Conference on Refractories) took place in USA and since then UNITECR has taken place every two years with the venue rotating between North America, Europe, Japan and Latin America.  ALAFAR (The Latin-American Association of Refractory Manufacturers) will host UNITECR 2017, which will take place at the Centro Parque International Conference Center in Santiago, Chile, from 26–29 September 2017. This is the 4th time ALAFAR will host the conference. A convention center has been selected that meets all of the requirements, with the best infrastructure, and located in a natural park within the heart of Santiago, close to many hotels, restaurants, shopping centers and various tourist attractions.
