Digital and additive manufacturing (including the many types and applications of 3D printing) hold strong promise as an area of research and growth in New York State, as well as nationally and globally. The “New Horizons in 3D Printing and Digital and Additive Manufacturing” conference and workshop will be held at the Charles B. Wang Center on September 29 and September 30.
This two-day event will explore some of the key transformative technical areas in additive manufacturing, including functional materials development for digital and additive manufacturing, deposition system design and optimization, and exploring the frontiers of biomedical applications. To catalyze the formation of collaborations with academia and industry, and explore the promise of 3D printing and digital and additive manufacturing, this conference will include presentations on advances in materials science and engineering related to additive manufacturing; bioprinting for the synthesis of tissue, implants and biomedical devices; advanced technologies for 3D printing and additive manufacturing, from the nano to the macro scale; emerging industrial needs and opportunities, from energy applications to flexible electronics to clothing; and 3D printing in STEM education.
Invited speakers include Bradley R. Ringeisen, Head, Bioenergy and Biofabrication Section, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory); Hod Lipson, Cornell University, co-author of Fabricated: The New World of 3D Printing; Denis Cormier, Earl W. Brinkman Professor, Rochester Institute of Technology; Guha Manogharan, Center for Innovation in Additive Manufacturing, Youngstown State University, Ohio; Francis Bitonti, Francis Bitonti Studios, New York (speaking on 3D printed fashion and art).
This event is sponsored by The New York State Network of Excellence in Materials and Advanced Manufacturing.
