Additive Manufacturing Benchmarks 2018 (AM-Bench 2018)

June 18-21, 2018 ● National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Headquarters
Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA

Benchmark Measurement and Modeling Symposium

Don’t miss this opportunity to share your work with leading experts interested in advancing new approaches to validating additive manufacturing simulations. The Benchmark Measurement and Modeling Symposium held as part of AM-Bench 2018 is seeking presentations within the following topic areas:

  • Quantitative measurements and characterization
  • State-of-the-art models and future directions
  • End user modeling needs
  • AM benchmark needs and directions

Please note that the purpose of this symposium is to showcase technical presentations (oral and poster) only. Benchmark challenges and responses will be solicited as a separate aspect of AM-Bench 2018 in February 2018.

(Read more about the benchmark test aspect of AM-Bench 2018 in the Benchmark Tests section of the conference website or at the NIST Benchmark Tests website.)
