    About the Event

    A Workshop on Standardization Potential of Micro/Nanoscale Test Methods will be held Sunday, November 9, 2014 at 12:30pm. Sponsored by ASTM Committee E28 on Mechanical Testing, the workshop will be held at the Sheraton New Orleans in New Orleans, LA, in conjunction with the November standards development meetings of the committee.

    The objectives of the workshop are:

      1. Gather researchers from academica, industry, national labs, and instrument manufacturers to discuss the current state of the art in micro/nanomechaincal testing methods.

      2. To bring together disparate small-scale testing efforts in ASTM to identify common problems or best practices.

      3. Identify "future" technologies/methods that are currently under development.

      4. Identify current micro/nanomechanical test methods/technologies for which standardization should be immediately pursued.

      5. Identify key partners for standards development and define how interested parties (NIST, academia, instrument manufacturers) can contribute to standardization efforts.

      6. Define immediate next steps for parties interested in contributing to standardization effort.
