PM2014 is held once every six years in North America and sponsored by the MPIF in cooperation with APMI International. In 2014, the conference will be held in Orlando, Florida, from 18–22 May, at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. 

Technical programme co-chairmen Russell A Chernenkoff, Metaldyne LLC and W Brian James, FAPMI, Hoeganaes Corp, request abstracts of 100–150 words, covering any aspect of PM and particulate materials technology. In addition, several key topics have been identified for in-depth discussion within the special interest programmes, such as NDT/failure analysis, machinability, fatigue, and technologies for PM growth. The 9th Tungsten, Refractory & Hardmaterials Conference will be held in conjunction with the PM2014 World Congress. All abstracts on the topic of refractory metals, carbides, and ceramics should be submitted for the tungsten conference. Abstract submission for both conferences is done through the same online submission site. The deadline is 6 September, 2013. Papers can be submitted here.
