  • ASME MSEC 2018 Workshop Invitation

    Dear Colleague,

    We are pleased to invite you to participate in the NIST-ASTM-NSF-ASME Workshop on Challenges in Representing Manufacturing Processes for Systematic Sustainability Assessments, which will be held on June 21st at Texas A&M University. The workshop is in conjunction with the ASME 2018 Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (MSEC), co-located with the 46th SME North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC), and sponsored by the US National Science Foundation’s Nanomanufacturing program.

    The expected outcomes of the workshop will be to: 1) inform the US NSF of research challenges and future directions in nanomanufacturing and other advanced manufacturing domains, and 2) discuss manufacturing process modeling challenges in the context of new manufacturing standards being developed by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology. More details about the workshop are available here: The webpage will be updated with additional details as the workshop approaches.

    We look forward to seeing you in College Station, Texas!
