Program Update: Fluids Engineering Track Names Plenary Lecturer
NASA Astronaut Donald R. Pettit, PhD will be the plenary lecturer for IMECE Track 9: Fluids Engineering Systems & Technologies. Pettit will share his observations of subtle phenomena, such as charged fluid and Marangoni convection, which are typically masked on Earth, but present in space. @astro_pettit.

ASME Online Groups Facilitate Interdisciplinary Collaboration
ASME's online groups feed news and updates about what's happening with different mechanical engineering segments and bring together mechanical engineers to create powerful dialogue. Sign up to gain free access to our different technical groups online or to receive IMECE-specific updates.

Save the Date! FutureME Mini-Talks
Presented by: ASME Board on Career Development
Sunday, November 15, 8:00pm - 10:00pm

Join the Board on Career Development for a 2-hour social experience at IMECE! You will have the opportunity to hear four short, relevant, and inspirational Mini-Talks given in an informal setting by experienced early career engineers sharing their perspective on career development.

Check out one of our latest Mini-Talks on
solving challenges in global collaboration:

In addition to the mini-talks, you can meet up with other mechanical engineers who have similar interests, to network professionally, and make new connections with ASME leadership and/or renew past friendships.

For more information, visit the FutureME Mini-Talks web page.

Highlights from 2014

Hear from Jun Yang about the new technology he's working on called the initiator-integrated 3D printing, or i3DP, which could enhance the functionality of 3D printed objects.

Hear from Dr. Kenneth R. Diller how heat-related processes in living tissues may be applied to the design of therapeutic devices.

Listen to Xerox Corporation's Ursula Burns discuss her views about women in science and leadership.
