An official call for presentations has been announced for AMPM2018: Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy, taking place in San Antonio, Texas, from 17–20 June 2018.

The leading North American metal additive manufacturing (AM) conference, organized by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), requires submission categories including the following:

  • Materials
  • Applications
  • Technical barriers
  • Process economics
  • New developments.

‘Metal AM is still expanding exponentially,’ said Jim Adams, executive director/CEO, MPIF. ‘Due to increased conference participation over the last several years, we've decided to extend the technical sessions at AMPM2018 to three days. Speakers will have more time to explain their research, and attendees will have even more opportunities to learn and grow.’ Submissions will be accepted until 3 November 2017. Visit for details.
