The IMDEA Materials Institute, one of the seven Madrid Institutes for Advanced Studies (IMDEA), has announced that the Alloys for Additive Manufacturing Symposium (AAMS) 2023 will take place September 27-29 at the Puerta de Toledo Campus at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in Spain.
This event will cover materials aspects of metal AM, including new and tailored alloys; AM methods, including multi-material approached and hybrid processes; microstructure and property design via AM; and porous structures, lattices and meta-materials.
All scientific issues around the Additive Manufacturing of metals, alloys and composites which include a metallic phase, fall under the scope of the conference. This includes experimental and theoretical research on powder making, powder characterisation and degradation during AM processing, in-process materials behaviour, post-processing and the resulting materials structural or functional properties. In particular, contributions concerning the optimisation of existing alloys for AM processes and the design of new, tailor-made alloys, are encouraged.
The event follows on from the successful earlier additions at the Max Planck Institute (Düsseldorf, Germany) in 2016; at the EMPA (Dubendorf, Switzerland) in 2017, at the University of Sheffield (UK) in 2018; at the Chalmers University of Technology (Gotheborg, Sweden) in 2019; and at the Universität der Bundeswehr (Munich, Germany) in 2021.
