The International Committee for Study of Bauxite, Alumina & Aluminium (ICSOBA) is an independent non-profit association that unites industry professionals representing major bauxite, alumina and aluminium producing companies, technology suppliers, researchers and consultants from around the world.
ICSOBA was formed in 1963 in Zagreb (former Yugoslavia), and in the past half century it has become a well-recognized and truly international organization. The main objective of ICSOBA is to promote the exchange of ideas and results of the work from different fields of research related to bauxite exploration and mining, and alumina and aluminium production.
Since 1963 some 35 ICSOBA events - symposia, congresses and seminars - were organized in different parts of the world and proceedings were published as printed Travaux volumes.
