Call for Papers: Symposium on Emerging Areas of Manufacturing Engineering

From: Kevin K. Jurrens (
Date: Thu Jan 20 2000 - 02:46:40 EET

Dear RP-ML,
I am forwarding the following call for papers and symposium announcement
on behalf of a colleague. This conference may be of interest to the list
since the candidate topics include recent advances in rapid prototyping /
solid freeform fabrication.

Symposium on Emerging Areas of Manufacturing Engineering
Papers Due for Review: February 18, 2000
Notification: May 25, 2000
Symposium Co-Organizer: Symposium Co-Organizer:
        Matthew A. Davies Shounak Athavale
        NIST Technical Specialist
        100 Bureau Drive STOP 8220 Ford Motor Company

        (301) 975-3521 (313) 621-0718

This symposium solicits papers on emerging areas of manufacturing engineering
including, but not limited to (1) high-speed machining; (2) design and control of
high-speed machine components; (3) solid free form manufacturing including hybrid
machining processes (for example combined laser sintering and high-speed finish
machining); (4) parallel link machine tool structures; (5) non-traditional manufacturing
processes such as waterjet and laser machining; (6) micro- and nano-machining processes
and (7) modeling of manufacturing processes with emphasis on the use of models in
CAD/CAM software.

Dates: Papers must be submitted by February 20, 2000. Authors will be notified of paper
acceptance by May 25, 2000. Camera-ready mats are due June 25, 2000.
