ASME is monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation to ensure the health and safety of our meeting and conference participants, as well as our staff. We will also be monitoring the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) as the situation progresses.
As of this date, the conference is currently scheduled to take place. Please continue your work in the expectation that the conference will occur. All dates in the current Publications Schedule will be followed. Should it be determined that the conference may need to be postponed, cancelled, or held virtually instead of in-person for the health and safety of all, ASME has committed to offering the option of publishing the papers through our usual channels. If postponed, ASME will work with the conference organizing committee to determine whether the papers will be published at the time of the scheduled conference or delayed until the rescheduled one.
If there are any changes to these plans, we will provide updates on this website. We understand that you will have questions, so please check back periodically. Thank you.
The next update to this information is scheduled next Wednesday.
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), which will be the International Conference on Leading Edge Manufacturing/ Materials &Processing (LEMP) in 2020. These conferences attract more than 500 attendees who can avail themselves of more than 250 technical presentations, multiple panel discussions, poster sessions, lab and industry tours, workshops, and an early career forum. MSEC, in conjunction with NAMRC, typically includes 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 Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio on June 22 – June 26, 2020, in Cincinnati, Ohio, 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.
