Title: ASTM International Conference on Additive Manufacturing (ASTM ICAM)
Dates: Tuesday November 17 2020 - Friday November 20 2020
Location: (To Be Announced)
Papers are invited for the ASTM International Conference on Additive Manufacturing (ASTM ICAM) Sponsored by the ASTM Additive Manufactured Center of Excellence. The conference will be held in Orlando, FL on November 17-20, 2020.
To ensure additive manufacturing technologies are adopted by various industrial sectors, there is a need for establishing feedstock-process-structure-property-performance relationships; specifically, as they pertain to the structural integrity of these components and structures. This event will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas regarding the additively manufactured materials and components 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 and defense, medical, automotive, construction, electronics, oil and gas, etc.), academic, government and regulatory. A special emphasis is put into addressing the gap of trained workforce by providing special programs in attracting undergraduate and graduate students as well as young professionals to this major annual event. These programs may include, but are not limited to, students presentation competition, young investigator/engineer award, and who is who in AM under 40. In addition, the following two prestigious awards will be given during this event annually:
During this annual event, the following symposia will be organized:
To participate in the conference, presenters/authors must submit a 250 to 300-word preliminary abstract using the online Abstract Submittal Form no later than January 31st, 2020. The submission form will be available in early November.
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 Chair’s, Nima Shamsaei and Mohsen Seifi will notify you via postal mail by February 28, 2020 of your paper’s acceptability for presentation at the symposium. If the preliminary abstract is accepted, the presenter/author will be requested to submit a final camera-ready abstract several months before the symposium. The final abstracts will be distributed in an abstract booklet at the symposium.
