The Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics Symposium held at the Radisson RTP on October 17 & 18 was an event which brought together a wide range of the leading experts in the world of 3D printing/additive manufacturing.
The Symposium got off to a fine start with hosts Dr. Russell King and Dr. Paul Cohen welcoming symposium guests and introducing the Thursday Keynote address by Dr. Anthony Atala, director of the world renowned Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM). Dr. Atala delivered an outstanding address which touched on the full spectrum of innovation taking place at WFIRM.
Both days of the Symposium were full of dynamic speakers making excellent presentations. We also were able to enjoy two fine receptions and dinners thanks to our many generous sponsors, listed in the photo on the right. We are especially grateful to the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) who were the lead sponsors of the event. For those that are interested in some of the topics discussed, many of the Symposium presentations can be found at :
