The conference technical program, now available on-line and in print, will feature over 225 technical presentations by authors from over 30 countries. A trade exhibition will showcase leading suppliers of metal powders and particulate materials, processing equipment, and PM products.

The conference opening general session will include a keynote presentation by Afternburner, Inc., featuring fighter pilots who impart their critically honed team skills to the business world. It will also include an overview of the annual MPIF State-of-the-Industry Report. Additional conference events include the Industry Recognition Luncheon and the PM Design Excellence Awards Luncheon. The social highlight of the conference will be an evening at Alcatraz including a dinner cruise on San Francisco Bay. 

In addition to the comprehensive technical program, the conference will include management-focused programs open to MPIF-member companies: “PM And The New Auto Industry”; an “Afterburner Rapid Planning Workshop” following up on the keynote presentation; a “PM Technology Scan” focusing on the MIM industry and on challenges to PM by competitive technologies; and a session featuring “The Growth Initiative,” a new sales-oriented program designed for manufacturers.

Technical sessions, poster presentations, and a slate of four special interest programs will cover a range of subjects such as metal injection moulding, fatigue, machinability, sintering, high-density processing, low- and high-alloy steels, aluminium, composite materials, materials for automotive applications, advances in titanium, powder production, testing & evaluation, compaction, and operational advances. Other topics include tungsten, refractory and hardmaterials, magnet materials and applications, PM materials for alternative energy, tribology, and sinter hardening and leaner/economic powders.
