Call for Abstracts
43rd International SAMPE Symposium & Exhibition
"Materials and Process Affordability - Keys to the Future"
May 31 - June 4, 1998, Anaheim, California, USA

SAMPE is now soliciting abstracts for technical development papers or
case studies on methods of prototyping for advanced material
applications including aerospace, military, transportation,
infrastructure, marine, electronics, and sporting goods. Advanced
materials include: polymer matrix composites, ceramic matrix composites,
metal matrix composites, monolithic ceramics, monolithic metals, and
engineering thermoplastics (thermosets and thermoplastics). Prototyping
methods may be novel low-cost techniques, CNC machining, or recent Solid
Freeform Fabrication (SFF) techniques. There is also an emphasis on
using these prototyping techniques to produce tooling for the
manufacture of advanced or traditional materials.

VENUE: Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim California - 5 minutes from
Disneyland, and within one hour drive of Los Angeles, Pasadena,
Hollywood, Hollywood Bowl, Malibu, Knotts Berry Farm, Universal Studios,
all beaches, Dodger Stadium, Santa Catalina Island ferries, Mount Wilson
Observatory, UCLA and USC campuses, and more!

Submit abstract through SAMPE website, OR

(fax) 937-229-2794 (phone),, 300 College
Park, Dayton, OH 45469-0131.

Abstracts should be 100-200 words, include title and author affiliation,
and specify "prototyping session". Abstract should give objective,
results, and significance of study. Acceptance of abstract does not
constitute acceptance of paper. Final papers due by January 10, 1998.
Presentations are 30 minutes total including a 5-10 minute Q&A session.
