The 38th International Congress on Applications of Lasers & Electro-Optics (ICALEO), organised by The Laser Institute (LIA), will be held at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Florida, USA, from Oct 7–10, 2019. This year, the congress will showcase laser-based Additive Manufacturing technologies (LAM) as one of its five unique conference tracks.

The LAM track will feature in the technical conference and workshops held throughout the four-day event. Industry professionals from academic and industrial settings will have the opportunity to assess the global landscape of laser-based AM technologies, and host dialogues between international leaders within the sector. 

Attendees will also have the opportunity to discuss the rapidly-growing field of hybrid processing as it relates to a wide range of process combinations, and to examine the development and characterisation of emerging materials for Additive Manufacturing. 

The technical conference will feature industry-focused days, covering the Aerospace, Biomedical, Microelectronics and Automotive sectors. The event will also feature a number of activities in the accompanying trade show, including Live User Solutions Forums, a Market Drivers Symposium, and the Evening of Innovation reception.

Co-chaired by Dr Richard Martukanitz and Dr Edward ‘Ted’ Reutzel, the LAM conference track will focus on the development and use of specialised materials, processes and diagnostics for laser-based AM applications.

Dr Martukanitz currently holds a joint appointment as a Research Professor within the Materials Science and Engineering Department at the University of Virginia and is a Fellow in Additive Manufacturing at the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM). Dr Reutzel is acting Head of Pennsylvania State University’s Center for Innovative Material Processing through Direct Digital Deposition (CIMP-3D), as well as the Applied Research Laboratory’s Additive and Laser Manufacturing Division.  

The LAM conference organising committee also includes Paul Denney, IPG Photonics, Thierry Marchione, Caterpillar Inc, Dr Clive Grafton-Reed, Rolls-Royce Leicester, and Dr Christoph Leyens, Fraunhofer IWS, Dr Stefan Kollmannsberger, Technical University of Munich, Dr Antti Salminen, Lappeenranta University of Technology, Prof Milan Brandt, RMIT University, and Dr Shawn Kelly, Oerlikon.
