Location: Rosen Shingle Creek; Orlando, FL

Pre-registration requested to attend this meeting.


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 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, FL on November 17-20, 2020.

With the creation of ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) in early 2018, and the growth of the AM industry, the effort has been led by the ASTM AM CoE and involves additional technical committees. This year event is now a full International conference with an even wider scope still related to standardization, qualification, and certification. This will be an event involving even more ASTM committees and external stakeholders, setting the stage to bring experts from all around the world to exchange the latest development in the field of additive manufacturing with emphasis on transition of research to standardization.

The implementation of AM training and recruitment programs such as student presentation competition and young investigator/engineer awards, will also be addressed. Additionally, the recipients of the two prestigious 2020 ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Awards of Excellence in both Research and Standardization will be announced during this event.

There will be several symposia organized during this conference, including:

  • Structural integrity, qualification and certification
  • Industry 4.0 (Cyber, AI, Robotics, Automation, Sensors, etc.)
  • AM feedstockͽ Application of AM in construction
  • 3D printed ceramics
  • Application of AM in oil and gas industry
  • 3D printed polymers and composites
  • Microstructural aspects of AM
  • Non-destructive evaluation methods for AM
  • Fatigue & fracture of AM materials
  • Mechanical testing of AM materials
  • 3D printed electronics
  • Application of AM in biomedical
  • General additive manufacturing topics (design and simulation, materials and processing, post processing, and safety)
  • AM applications in general aviation
  • AM applications in commercial space flight

As additive manufacturing (AM) technologies are adopted by various industries, establishing feedstock-process-structure-property-performance relationships becomes essential for qualification and certification of parts in safety critical applications. This conference will address application specific requirements of various industry sectors in addition to covering the fundamentals of AM process chain. Industry, academia, and government agency professionals in the AM community are invited to address the need for industry standards, design principals, as well as qualification and certification challenges. Materials of interest include metals, polymers, composites, and ceramics.

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 May 1st, 2020. The link to submit your abstract is listed below.

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. 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.
