Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials Conference Issues Call for Papers

August 2017

An official call for papers and posters has been announced for POWDERMET2018: International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, June 17–20, 2018. This leading North American powder metallurgy (PM) conference will take place at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio, Texas, and is seeking a wide variety of topics.

Submission categories include the following:

"The POWDERMET conference provides a perfect opportunity for everyone involved in the PM industry—from the visionaries and the theorists to the current and the practical." said Ken Schatz, sales manager, Metco Industries, and long-time conference attendee. "For me, the main benefit is in the showcasing of available current products and the ability to learn about the latest technology in current production applications. It also provides a good forum to network with vendors, suppliers, other part producers, and end users."

Submissions will be accepted through November 3, 2017. Visit for details.

The conference is sponsored by the Metal Powder Industries Federation, the North American trade association representing the powder metallurgy industry, and its affiliate APMI International.
