Additive International (previously the International Conference on Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing) has announced the speaking line-up for its event taking place in Nottingham, UK from 11-12 July. This year’s summit reportedly includes a mix of additive experts, researchers, entrepreneurs and practitioners from across academia and industry and covers a range of topics, from using silicone inks to print lifelike organ models and on-body printing to developing ultra-stiff, lightweight mechanical metamaterials, accelerating the development of AM standards, printing in-orbit satellite parts, serial part production in aerospace and using innovation to tackle post-processing issues.

’Additive International is really more of a summit than a conference. It is all about bringing experts together to share knowledge, discuss ideas and to learn from one another,’ said conference chair, Professor Richard Hague, who is director of the Centre for Additive Manufacturing at the University. ‘We don’t shy away from addressing the issues and obstacles that AM presents head-on.’

The main conference will feature 19 speakers from across the industry including:

  • Ian Brooks, Moog Controls Ltd
  • Abi Bush, Field Ready
  • Paola Caracciolo, Airbus - Germany
  • Tiffany Chen. RMIT University
  • Alvaro Goyanes, University College London
  • Jonathan Jeffers, Imperial College London
  • Abby Juhl, Air Force Research Laboratory
  • Cindy Kutchko, PPG Industries
  • Michael McAlpine, The University of Minnesota
  • Florence Montredon, Thales Alenia Space
  • Alexander Powell, ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences
  • Anil K Sachdev, GM Global Research and Development
