The MSEC 2013 and NAMRC 41 Technical Program Overviews are now available online at the ASME-hosted websites.

"On behalf of the the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and ASME, and in participation with Promozione L@ser/AITeM, I invite you to attend two leading world-class conferences in the field of manufacturing research that will be co-located to better serve the needs of the advanced manufacturing research community. The two participating conferences are:

MSEC is the foremost annual forum sponsored by the Manufacturing Engineering Division (MED) of ASME International. It is intended to disseminate the most recent manufacturing research and development through both technical presentations and panel sessions.

NAMRC is the premier international forum for applied research and industrial applications in manufacturing and design: sponsored by the North American Manufacturing Research Institution (NAMRI) of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME). Global academic, government and industry researchers, engineers, and technical managers (leaders in manufacturing) attend this conference to interact with each other and advance the field.

The conference schedule will include: keynote presentations, technical presentations, expert panels, student poster presentations, a student design competition, industrial exhibition, early career forum, university lab tours, industry tours, awards banquet, luncheons, and more.

These co-located conferences will be held at the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center on beautiful Lake Monona. All conference hotels are less than a 10-minute walk from the convention center and located in bustling downtown Madison. "
