International Conference on Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing to take place online

August 14, 2020

The 2020 edition of the International Conference on Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM 2020), which was scheduled to take place in Erlangen, Germany, from October 5–7, 2020, will now take place online due to constraints caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Organised by the Chair of Materials Science and Engineering for Metals (WTM) together with the Cluster of Excellence Engineering of Advanced Materials (EAM), the biennial EBAM conference aims to discuss specific challenges and opportunities for Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) Additive Manufacturing. 

According to the organisers, since the inaugural EBAM conference in 2016, interest in PBF-EB has increased further, with a significant number of submissions from around the world. For the digital edition this year, the presentations are pre-recorded and will reportedly be made available to all participants two weeks prior to the conference and for a limited time afterwards.

The scientific focus of EBAM 2020 includes but is not limited to:

  • Powder manufacturing and powder recovery
  • Process observation and control
  • New/modified Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing technologies
  • Processing and properties of all kinds of metallic/intermetallic alloys and composites
  • Secondary and finishing operations
  • Modelling and simulation

The organisers state that they are currently planning the new format of the digital conference. Further information and registration details are available via the event website.
