23rd International Conference on Metallurgy and Materials was held on 21 - 23 May 2014, traditionally in Brno. From 530 registered participants, 432 people from 26 countries attended the conference (239 participants from the Czech Republic, 89 from Poland, 19 from Slovakia, 18 from the Russian Federation, 12 from Korea, 10 from Turkey, but also from Denmark, Taiwan, South Africa and China).

Symposium D: 26 papers, 18 posters
Symposium E: 43 papers, 46 posters
Symposium F: 26 papers, 66 posters

Presentation of companies:
Thermo-Calc Software AB, ANAMET Ltd./Nanovea Inc., Linde Gas a.s., ZDAS a.s., W.S. Maney & Son Ltd., Cambridge University Press and The Czech Society for New Materials and Technologies.

On Thursday afternoon took place the accompanying program, which included the Cruise ship on the Brno dam and the visit of the Brno technical museum or Villa Tugendhat. The participants of this accompanying program were greatly appreciated.

The first day was held in Voronez I Social evening with wine tasting of South Moravia Restaurant with accompanied by dulcimer music. The following evening took place at Moravska chalupa Beer party with grilling piglets.

Supplementing the excellent technical support in the conference halls of symposia, food services, accommodation in the hotel or nearby, determines the location for the year 2015 as the best.

In the poster session was more than 220 posters were also represented in proportion to the number of papers at various symposia. Conference organizer TANGER Ltd. based on the evaluation of chairmen of symposia announced five honorable mentions and another 3 prizes including practical gifts. The poster session of the conference was also considered very successful.

Abstract: The processes of reverse logistics in creating added value for producers in metallurgy are presented here. Steel Industry is the primary industry which plays important role on the national development and economy sustainability. This industry’s supply chain and logistics system is considered complex and appears to be part of other industries’ supply chain and logistics systems, such as infrastructure or automotive industries.

Abstract: The turbulence of the modern environment consists not only in the occurrence of financial crises but also in the appearance of phenomena related, inter alia, to technical progress which influences the growth of the knowledge importance. The rapid development of technology also causes the substitution of production factors and the material and labor consuming products by the areas of production based on modern knowledge and characterized by the use of +computerization and automation, and low energy costs.

Abstract: This paper is focused on degradation mechanisms acting on crystallizer and their interpretation in modeling the crystallizer lifetime by support lifetime management of crystallizer using Weibull distribution. For more accurate modeling of various degradation mechanisms scope of the crystallizer and the effective management of the lifetime of the crystallizer the crystallizer were did division into three regions, where each of them were defined its weight by different ways of the degradation mechanisms and refined by the action of various degradation mechanisms on the lifetime of the crystallizer as a whole.

Abstract: The aim of this article is to introduce a didactic model of metallurgical enterprise which arises by using Project OP Education for Competitiveness called "Integrated System for Modular Computer Aided Teaching with the Focus on Economics and Technical Subjects." Didactic model of metallurgical enterprise takes the form of a physical model of individual metallurgical aggregates, which are connected to the computer control systems. Unlike pure software models in this case that is a comprehensive set of technical resources of its own technology, control systems based on programmable logic controllers and circuits of measurement and control.
