The University of Michigan—Ann Arbor is pleased to invite you to attend the 2014 International Manufacturing Research Conference, combining three organizations:

  • American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) International Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (MSEC 2014);
  • 42nd North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC 42), sponsored by the North American Manufacturing Research Institution of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (NAMRI/SME); and
  • Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) International Conference on Materials and Processing (ICM&P 2014), sponsored by the JSME and ASME

MSEC is the foremost annual forum sponsored by the Manufacturing Engineering Division (MED) of ASME International. It is intended to disseminate the most recent manufacturing research and development through both technical presentations and panel sessions.

NAMRC is the premier international forum for applied research and industrial applications in manufacturing and design, sponsored by NAMRI/SME. Global academicians, government and industry researchers, engineers, and leaders in manufacturing attend this conference to interact with each other and advance the field.

ICM&P is the key conference of the Materials and Processing Division (M&P) of JSME. The conference highlights cutting-edge manufacturing research in technical paper, poster, and panel sessions.

The conference schedule will include keynote and technical presentations; expert panels; student poster presentations; an exhibition of industry partners; an early career forum; University of Michigan lab tours; industry tours; an awards banquet; luncheons; and more. These co-located conferences will be held at the Cobo Center, located on Detroit's revitalized riverfront, in conjunction with the SME BigM and Rapid conferences and exhibitions.

Michigan and its adjacent regions are the manufacturing centers of North America. Detroit Wayne County Metro Airport (DTW) is 21 miles (34 km) from the convention center and hotels.

The 11th Wu Symposium, US Venue, will be held on June 12, 2014 at Cobo Center.
