Poster Program




INTERNATIONAL POSTERS dealing with various aspects of PM and particulate materials technologies will be displayed daily starting on Monday morning. Authors will be available at their posters for discussion Monday (5:00–6:30 p.m.) during the PM Evening Alehouse. Manuscripts submitted from poster authors will be published in the conference proceedings.

"Outstanding Poster" and "Poster of Merit" awards will be given by the Poster Awards Committee for displays that best meet the established criteria. Award ribbons will be posted prior to the designated discussion period on Monday. Student Poster Sessions also have dedicated times throughout the conference. See the Daily Schedule for details.

Grant TNT—Talk 'N Technology

Grant recipients will provide 10-minute synopsis of their posters throughout the conference in the exhibit hall.

Student Grant Poster Program

Continuing our quest to introduce the science of PM to students, 40 National Science Foundation (NSF) and 4 CPMT/Axel Madsen Conference Grant recipients will prepare project posters on powder metallurgy to be displayed during the conference. Additionally, each recipient will present a 10-minute synopsis of the poster during a scheduled poster session.

National Science Foundation LogoGrant recipients and poster titles will be announced soon.

MPIF is grateful to the National Science Foundation for its support of students to attend the POWDERMET2018 & AMPM2018 annual conferences. This support provides student participants with opportunities to exchange ideas with leading researchers and engineers from worldwide industrial and governmental facilities, as well as with students and faculty from both domestic and international universities. Student participants will learn the latest research areas and results in powder metallurgy fields of interest. These opportunities will not only improve the students’ knowledge in the field, but also develop scientists and engineers who are ideally suited to create the next generation of designs in powder metallurgy and metal additive manufacturing that will push materials and manufacturing capabilities.

The Axel Madsen Conference Grant Program was established by the Madsen family to encourage students to learn more about PM technology and eventually pursue careers in the PM industry.
