Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference
In-Person Event
Knoxville Convention Center, Knoxville TN, USA
Hosted by University of Tennessee
June 17–21, 2024

MSEC 2024

The Manufacturing Engineering Division (MED) of ASME sponsors the Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (MSEC) every June. MSEC is the foremost annual forum for the scholarly exchange of advanced manufacturing research knowledge. It is intended to disseminate the most recent developments in manufacturing research through technical presentations, poster sessions, and panel sessions.

Since 2011, MSEC has been co-located with NAMRI/SME’s North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC). Together, these co-located conferences represent the largest advanced manufacturing research conference in North America. Every three years the conferences are co-located with a conference sponsored by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME). These conferences attract more than 500 attendees who can avail themselves of more than 250 technical presentations, multiple panel discussions, poster sessions, workshops, and an early career forum. MSEC, in conjunction with NAMRC, typically welcomes more than 80 students (from U.S. institutions) who are presenting their research and looking for career opportunities.

This year the conference will be hosted by the University of Tennessee on June 17 – June 21, 2024, Knoxville, Tennessee, USA. MSEC is the place to learn about the latest manufacturing research, talk with the researchers pushing the frontiers, network with R&D experts, and meet the future R&D workforce in the following session tracks:

  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Advanced Materials Manufacturing
  • Biomanufacturing
  • Manufacturing Equipment and Automation
  • Manufacturing Processes
  • Manufacturing Systems
  • Life Cycle Engineering
  • Nano/Micro/Meso Manufacturing
  • Quality & Reliability
  • Posters, Student Manufacturing Design Competition

NEW This year! Brief Papers (New to MSEC 2024!)

Brief papers undergo full peer review and are published in the conference proceedings, in the same manner as full papers. A brief paper is 4-5 pages long. It reports technically original research that is of significant and archival value to the engineering community. A brief paper may contain preliminary work that has not yet been fully developed. An accepted brief paper is accompanied by a 15-minute oral presentation at the conference and a poster presentation during the poster session.
