Conference to bring together world leading experts in particulate and powder science

Posted on: 15/11/2017

MAPP, the Future Manufacturing Hub in Manufacture using Advanced Powder Processes, is hosting its First International Conference next year.

The conference, on Tuesday 30th and Wednesday 31st January in Sheffield, will bring together experts in the areas of particulate and powder science, with a particular focus on: in-situ process and performance characterisation; advanced characterisation; and modelling, optimisation and control.

This key event will be taking place exactly one year after MAPP held its successful launch event and will showcase leading advances in powder based processes from world leading experts. MAPP Director and RAEng Chair, Professor Iain Todd is delighted with the early progress being made by the MAPP project partners. “Together with our partners at the Universities of Leeds, Manchester, Oxford and Imperial College London, we are working towards the application of new technologies to drive right first time manufacturing for advanced powder processes. This conference will provide a great opportunity to share new insights across both academia and industry to overcome the challenges facing adoption of these advanced processes.”

The conference is expected to attract 150 delegates and has a stellar line up of international experts providing the keynote presentations:

  • Professor Carolin K√∂rner, Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-N√ºrnberg
  • Professor Javier Llorca, IMDEA Materials Institute, Madrid
  • Professor Jin Ooi, University of Edinburgh
  • Professor Tresa Pollock, University of California
  • Professor Barbara Previtali, Polytechnic of Milan
  • Professor Fabrice Rossignol, French National Centre for Scientific Research

In addition to the high-calibre presentations, MAPP will also be announcing the details of its new feasibility funding call and organising visits to its research facilities at the University of Sheffield and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre.

The conference is already attracting interest from a variety of sectors and is gaining support from across the industry. To secure your place visit where registration and call for abstracts is now open. A limited number of bursaries are available for early career researchers, who can apply online, and some sponsorship opportunities are still available.
