Call for Papers

Call for Papers 2017


The Jewelry Technology Forum (JTF) is the unique opportunity in Europe to compare notes and favour cultural exchange of a technical and scientific nature among experts in the international gold sector, on subjects of common and current interest.


Its characterising element is providing participants with practical indications and concrete answers to daily questions related to the many aspects of goldsmith technology. That is why JTF prevalently encourages research papers and new information gleaned from projects promoted by companies, but is also keen on giving voice to the academic world and scientific institutions, providing that the contents to be shared are developed with a view to technical application.

For this reason, papers must not contain any references of a commercial or self-promoting nature.



The Scientific Committee proposes to deal with the following themes in the 2017 edition:

  • Metallurgy and alloys
  • Investment casting
  • Mechanical processing
  • The evolution of gold production technology as a function of new fashion and design trends
  • Surface coatings
  • New materials
  • Nano-technologies applied to gold and related sectors
  • Quality system, productive organisation, process and product traceability
  • Legislation, norms and reference standards, ethics and social responsibility
  • The creation of models: design, rapid prototyping, hardware and software, selective laser melting
  • Best-practice demonstrations, in any of the above fields, from your own experience



  • Within 30 June 2016: send us your subject proposal and request for participation by writing to Specify the title of the speech, a brief extract (maximum 15 lines), and kindly send your updated bibliography with a picture in jpg format.
  • Within 15 October 2016: if accepted by the Scientific Committee, the complete work must be sent for final approval.


The speakers will be the guests of the Organisation for the entire duration of the JTF, which will be held during the VICENZAORO January and T-Gold trade fair in January 2017 in Vicenza.
