The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has issued a call for papers for the 2020 World Congress on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials (WorldPM2020), as well as the 2020 Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy conference (AMPM2020) and the 10th International Conference on Tungsten, Refractory & Hardmaterials (Tungsten2020), all taking place in Montréal, Canada, from June 27 – July 1, 2020.

WorldPM2020

WorldPM2020 is held once every six years in North America and this will be the second time that the congress will be co-located with Tungsten2020 and AMPM2020. The technical programme co-chairmen Blaine Stebick, Phoenix Sintered Metals LLC and Carl Blais, Laval University, request abstracts covering the latest developments in Powder Metallurgy materials, processes, and applications. 

Suggested topics for WorldPM2020 paper submissions include:

  • Design & modeling of PM materials, components & processes
  • Particulate production
  • General compaction & forming processes
  • Powder Injection Moulding (metals & ceramics) 
  • Pre-sintering & sintering 
  • Secondary operations 
  • Materials
  • Refractory metals, carbides & ceramics
  • Advanced particulate materials & processes
  • Material properties 
  • Test & evaluation 
  • Applications 
  • Management issues

AMPM2020

According to the MPIF, the AMPM conference has grown significantly since its debut in 2014 as the only conference focused on metal Additive Manufacturing, and this year will feature an extra day of technical sessions. The technical programme co-chairmen Matthieu Brochu, McGill University, and Joseph T. Strauss, HJE Company, Inc., request abstracts covering the latest developments in metal AM. 

Suggested topics for AMPM2020 paper submissions include:

  • Modeling of materials, components & processes
  • Design of components
  • Particulate production
  • Build processes
  • Sintering
  • Post-build operations
  • Materials
  • Materials properties
  • Testing & evaluation
  • Applications
  • Management issues

Tungsten2020

The Tungsten2020 conference aims to address recent developments in the refractory and hardmetals field and will encompass refractory and hardmetal processing, microstructure, properties, and applications. The technical programme co-chairmen Animesh Bose, FAPMI, Desktop Metal; Robert J. Dowding, U.S. Army Research Laboratory; and John L. Johnson, FAPMI, Elmet Technologies LLC, request abstracts covering any aspect of tungsten, refractory and hardmaterials.

Suggested topics for Tungsten2020 paper submissions include:

  • Refractory & Hardmaterials
  • Powder production
  • Processing/properties/microstructure/ performance 
  • Mechanical behaviour
  • Computational approaches
  • Systems integration

The submissions deadline for both events is November 15, 2019. Further information about submission guidelines is available via the organiser’s website.
