Registration is open and the Advanced Manufacturing Track is terrific! Learn more and review and share the attached flyer.
Abstracts are due March 1, 2021. Instructions on preparing and submitting abstracts will be available at http://www.sme.org/blue-sky-competition/.
The Fourth Annual NSF Manufacturing Blue Sky Competition, funded by the National Science Foundation, will be held during the 2021 SME North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC) and ASME Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (MSEC), June 21-25, 2021, which will be held online. The winner of the competition will receive the SME David Dornfeld Manufacturing Vision Award.
The aim of this annual competition is to influence the future of manufacturing research and education in the United States through new, visionary ideas of the future. Such visionary ideas are often described as “radical,” “outrageous,” “transformational,” “unconventional,” “convergent,” and “breakthrough.” Presentations should pose grand challenges to be addressed by pursuing the manufacturing research vision, describing the intersections between disparate disciplines necessary to advance that vision. Topical areas should extend beyond the scope of a single investigator and show potential for transformative impact in areas of interest to federal agencies.

Dear ASME Volunteer Leader,
Today it seems that engineering knowledge changes so quickly in the rapidly changing world of technology. Is there anything really timeless about our profession? Surprisingly yes - as evidenced by a set of professional principles written some 75 years ago which remain relevant today. In 1944 the ASME Mechanical Engineering magazine published three articles by W. J. King about what every engineer should know (yet is rarely taught at university). It was reprinted as the Unwritten Laws of Engineering in 1994 and published as the Unwritten Laws of Engineering with Revisions and Additions in 2001. We are embarking on an update of this publication and invite you to be a contributor.
The objective of this “team-based” project is to refresh and expand an historic document for the 21st century, and to release it in 2020 - a year when multiple ASME technical divisions and sections are celebrating their centennial.
The book contains three parts:
What is critically needed to make the publication relevant in the 21st century is more than an update of the three chapters, we need a fourth chapter on “What every engineer needs to know about teams, collaborations and systems engineering.”
In the spirit of collaborative engineering today we invite everyone in our society to consider contributing to the update. We are using a new ASME Wiki tool to "crowdsource" the initiative - and invite you to be a part of updating the laws along with creating a new chapter on collaboration.
All contributors will need to register to use the wiki tool and to complete a copyright release. We plan to recognize all contributions to the finished work in the updated publication.Please register here: https://bit.ly/2UNsa2pOnce registered you will be able to access the main site http://www.asmewiki.com/login
What wisdom have you discovered in your career which should be memorialized in our new Unwritten Laws of Engineering for the 21st Century?Please share this email with your individual communities. Please direct any queries to me at: email@example.com
Thanks for your consideration and support of this effort.
