The University of North Carolina (UNC) is hosting a workshop, sponsored by the U.S. Army Research Office (ARO), to explore the frontiers of 3D Printing (also called Additive Manufacturing, “AM”) science and technology. The event will bring together invited experts from academia, industry and government and military organizations to discuss emerging and future advances in AM technologies that may benefit the Warfighter.
The featured keynote speaker is Dr. Joe DeSimone, Chancellor’s Eminent Professor of Chemistry at UNC-Chapel Hill, William R. Kenan Jr. Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering at N.C. State University, and founder of the recently announced startup company Carbon3D.
Sessions will focus on: identifying current state of the art additive manufacturing (AM) related science and technology; identifying key research breakthroughs that are needed to advance the state of the art; and identifying possible areas for future government investment and collaboration with academia and industry partners. These sessions will be designed around specific topic areas, such as:
- 3D printing to meet military requirements
- Advanced manufacturing techniques
- Software and modeling·
- Training methods for the novice
- Just-in-time (JIT) manufacturing·
- Intellectual Property
