3D printing is an additive manufacturing (AM) process of the materials which builds three-dimensional objects layer by layer. The technology highly depends on the materials science and engineering. This symposium is for academic and industry experts getting together to share new ideas and the latest achievements. We welcome both experienced and new users of AM to develop network for new research and applications. The symposium offers the attendees a platform for the discussion of science, technology, and engineering in 3D printing materials. Besides the talks of the symposium, the parallel exhibition features several companies, as well as promising research teams, will show their innovative products and services.

  1. Metal, polymer, ceramic, and advanced composite materials developed for additive manufacturing
  2. On-line characterization and evaluation on the additive manufacturing materials
  3. Modeling and simulation of additive manufacturing processes
  4. Additive manufacturing of medical, aerospace, and other devices
  5. Novel additive manufacturing technology
