Venue of iCAT 2018

iCAT 2018 will be held in Maribor, the Slovenian 3D printing capital. Maribor, which is also one of the main industrial hubs in the region, surrounded by hills capped with vineyards, lying between the evergreen mountains of Pohorje. City has a lot to offer to a visitor regardless to one's travelling preferences. Culinary arts of many chefs in plenty of local restaurants and superb wine are good reasons to visit Maribor, the same is also true for the sunny hills around the city offering many opportunities to burn the consumed calories. If none of these can persuade a passing traveller, the exceptional ballet ensemble of the Maribor National Theatre will certainly guarantee a spectacular evening in the city. There have been more than 180.000 people who visited Maribor last year among which foreign students provide some constant multicultural presence and enrich the student life in the city.

More information and reasons to visit Maribor can be found here:

The city established its university in 1975 to fulfil the needs of the developing industry. The roots of the university begin in 1959 when the Higher Technical School was established and started to train the first engineers for evolving industry. In 2002 the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, the successor of the Higher Technical School, started its research activities in Additive Manufacturing and remained on the forefront of its development in Slovenia.
This is the environment that will host the International Conference on Additive Technologies for the second time.

The lectures and programme will be held in the Hotel City in Maribor, which is very conveniently placed and offers perfect conferencing facilities.
