Dates: Tuesday October 08 2019 - Thursday October 10 2019
Location: Gaylord National Resort And Convention Center National Harbor, MD
Sponsored by: F42 Additive Manufacturing Technologies
Deadline for Abstract Submittal: Monday June 24 2019
Papers are invited for the Fourth ASTM Symposium on Structural Integrity of Additive Manufactured Materials and Parts to be held October 8-10, 2019 in Washington, DC. The Symposium will be sponsored by the ASTM Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE), and ASTM Committees F42.90.05 on Additive Manufacturing (Research and Innovation), E08 on Fatigue and Fracture, E07 on Nondestructive Testing, F04 on Medical and Surgical Materials and Devices, B09 on Metal Powders and Metal Powder Products, D20 on Plastics, and D30 on Composite Materials.
Additionally, the symposium is supported by the America Makes, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Food & Drug Administration (FDA), European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS) TC15 and National Science Foundation (NSF).
To ensure the structural integrity of additive manufactured parts, there is a need for establishing process-structure-property-performance relationships; specifically, as they pertain to fatigue and fracture behavior of these components and structures. This event will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas regarding the structural integrity of materials and components fabricated using additive manufacturing with a focus on the lack of industry standards, design principals, as well as qualification and certification criteria. This event is designed for professionals within the AM community including industrial (aerospace, medical, automotive and defense), academic, government and regulatory.
Paper topics for this symposium include, but are not limited to:
Sessions will be organized based on sector specific applications defined in the newly created F42 sub-committee that captures below sectors:

To participate in the symposium, authors must submit a 250-300 word preliminary abstract using the online Abstract Submittal Form no later than June 17, 2019. To ensure your abstract was received into the ASTM database, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you have submitted an abstract
The abstract must include a clear definition of the objective and approach of the work discussed, pointing out material that is new, and present sufficient details regarding results. The presentation and manuscript must not be of a commercial nature nor can it have been previously published. Because a limited number of abstracts will be accepted, be sure that the abstract is complete to allow for careful assessment of the paper's suitability for this symposium. Symposium Co-Chairmen Nima Shamsaei and Mohsen Seifi will notify you via postal mail by the end of June of your paper’s acceptability for presentation at the symposium. If the preliminary abstract is accepted, the author will be requested to submit an updated abstract a few months before the symposium. The final abstracts will be distributed in an abstract booklet at the symposium.
Student papers will be automatically entered into the ASTM AM COE Student Presentation Competition
Symposium presenters are required to submit their papers to the Selected Technical Papers (STP), an online and printed, peer-reviewed publication for the international scientific and engineering community. After the final selection of abstracts has been approved, the ASTM Editorial Office will send authors’ instructions via email only. Manuscripts to be peer reviewed for the STP are due online to the ASTM Editorial Office no later than September 20, 2019. The corresponding author (the author who is the main contact with ASTM Headquarters) will receive a copy of his/her paper in portable document format (PDF). All published authors will have the opportunity to purchase reprints of their papers at a nominal cost. Only those papers submitted by the manuscript due date will be included in the STP.
Please note that all submitted papers are subject to single blind peer review and will be submitted to the Library of Congress with an ISBN number and will be reviewed for inclusion in the "Thomson & Reuters Web of Science's Conference Proceedings Citation Index" (CPCI) and Google Scholar.
