Snapshot Workshop

9th AM CoE Snapshot Workshop

March 27, 2023

Ramada State College Hotel & Conference Center 1450 South Atherton Street
State College, PA 16801


Theme: AM Adoption and Industrialization

This one-day workshop, held at the Ramada State College Hotel & Conference Center, PA, on March 27, hosted by Penn State University, will provide a comprehensive snapshot of the progress in AM adoption and industrialization driven by the latest developments in technology. Open to all interested in knowing the latest and greatest in AM technology from industry leaders, this event opens a platform to engage in meaningful discussion with these industry experts and initiate dialogues for future collaborations.

The 9th Snapshot Workshop covers the standardization needs in accelerating AM adoption while incorporating recent developments. AM CoE’s research programs and other initiatives with its partners in filling the standardization gaps will be another focus of the discussion.

Who Should Attend
This workshop is open to all AM professionals, including industry (aerospace, medical, automotive, energy, and defense), academia, and government agency representatives who want to learn about the latest AM standardized practices and the research and development initiatives.

Why You Should Attend
The speakers in this workshop are experts from industry sectors who lead the research and innovation in additive manufacturing. This gives a unique opportunity for the participants to understand more about the best standardized practices and participate in the interactive presentations and panel discussions. Each session is designed with a focus on industry needs and the role that standards can play in driving innovation.

Earn a Verification of Completion Certificate
This Snapshot Workshop is the 9th offering from the AM CoE Education & Workforce Development (E&WD) Program, which provides training opportunities for various levels of the AM workforce. Each workshop participant will receive a digital Verification of Completion Certificate from ASTM AM CoE. Workshop attendees interested in receiving .55 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) should complete a CEU application form. A certificate will be sent to the attendee approximately 4 to 6 weeks after the application form is received.
