The Fraunhofer Additive Manufacturing Alliance, Dresden, Germany, has issued a call for papers for its Direct Digital Manufacturing Conference (DDMC), which will take place in Berlin, Germany from March 18–19, 2020. Having run biennially since 2012, Fraunhofer states that the purpose of the DDMC is to facilitate an intellectual exchange between researchers, enterprises and users of Additive Manufacturing technologies in order to gather the latest information about the trends, progress and future potential of these technologies for industrial application.

Papers submissions are invited on the following key conference topics:

  • Product development – including co-design and mass customisation
  • Technologies – including bioprinting, hybrid processes and technological novelties
  • Materials – including ceramics, bio-materials, multi-material approaches
  • Quality – including process monitoring and part quality management
  • Post-processing – including surface finishing and process chains for industrial production
  • Software – including process simulation and automated design
  • Latest industrial trends

Short abstracts of no more than 250 words can be submitted for consideration through Fraunhofer’s online system by July 5, 2019. Keynote speakers that have confirmed to date include Janne Kytannen, an Additive Manufacturing artist and entrepreneur, and Tim Weber, HP’s Global Head of 3D Metals.

More information regarding the conference and submissions process is available via the organisation’s web.
