"New Horizons in Digital and Additive Manufacturing"

Monday, March 16, 2015
8:15 am - 5:00 pm
Buffalo Marriott Niagara | 1340 Millersport Highway Amherst, NY
University at Buffalo, SUNY RF

Digital and additive manufacturing (including 3D printing applications) is a promising area of research and growth in New York State and around the world. This conference/workshop will look at some of the key transformative technical areas in additive manufacturing — including functional materials development for digital and additive manufacturing and deposition system design and optimization — and will explore the frontiers of biomedical applications.

By leveraging New York’s strong history of multi-scale electronic manufacturing and expertise in metals, polymers and composite materials, building collaborations in 3D printing and digital and additive manufacturing will benefit industry, the research enterprise, academia and education.

This conference will include presentations on the following topics:
- 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
- 3D printing and STEM education

Invited Speakers:
- Steve Levesque, Buffalo Manufacturing Works, EWI, Operations Manager
- George Small, Principal Engineer, Moog Inc. Aircraft Group
- Mike Springer, Jacobs Institute, the Center for Innovation in Medicine (CIM) Director,
Operations & Entrepreneurship
- Timothy W. Simpson, Professor of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering and Engineering Design, the Pennsylvania State University
- Denis Cormier, Earl W. Brinkman Professor, Rochester Institute of Technology

Conference includes student poster presentations, information on current systems for industry and education. Meet new collaborators, fellow students, and academic and industrial innovators in this growing field.
