In light of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and our priority for the health and welfare of our members and staff, ASTM International has decided that it is inadvisable and impractical to hold the committee meetings in Prague on April 27-May 1. The decision was based on several factors, including, but not limited to:

    • Continued review of information and recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and other governmental bodies.
    • Input from our members whose organizations are increasingly concerned with travel and the large gathering in Prague.
    • Watching the expanding trajectory of the coronavirus.

    Staff managers will be contacting committee leaders to plan alternatives for conducting committee business. For any committees that collected money for events, ASTM will work to issue refunds as necessary. Attendees are responsible for cancelling their own hotel reservations.

    Looking forward, we will rely on these and other relevant criteria and input points to assess the status of future scheduled ASTM meetings and events. Please consult our meeting webpage for the most up-to-date information. Thank you for your understanding and continued commitment to ASTM International.

    About the Event

    The Specialty Workshop Series: Additive Manufacturing Data Management and Schema will be held December 9-10, 2019 in Washington, DC and will be sponsored by the ASTM Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence.

    Additive manufacturing (AM) is being developed in the age of data. Relatively recent developments, such as digital data acquisition, automation, data analysis, and data sharing have the potential to exponentially accelerate the AM development timeline. Each platform can expand the AM knowledge base, which can be used to make new platforms more effective. Data-enabled material screening, build monitoring, post-build characterization, process qualification, part certification, and data security are among possible advancements ahead of the AM industry.  However, this exponential growth has not yet been observed. A key gap is the development of an AM data ecosystem where the generation, storage, analysis, and sharing of useful data is easy and secure. A sub-gap is the consistency of data that is gathered across groups. These issues create some challenges ahead of the AM community and new methodologies and standards are needed. This workshop, jointly developed by ASTM International and America Makes, aims to cover recent AM data management and data-enabled applications by bringing government, industry, and academic representatives together in order to discuss pertinent issues.

    One of the outcomes of this workshop is a roadmap that captures the input of various sectors and allow us to map out existing challenges, summarize gaps and come up with some potential future solutions to improve data management and use by timely development of related standards.

    Topics addressed will include:

    • AM data generation and pedigree
    • Advanced data-driven approaches in AM
    • AM database and data management system (access, standardization, maintenance, security and dissemination)
