Banner saying COVID-19 Update

(7/1/2020) All of the research organizations participating in the next round of AM-Bench measurements remain shut down or have limited operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, severely impacting our multi-year schedule of instrument upgrades, additive manufacturing builds, and measurements.  Our measurement teams continue to monitor this situation and have plans in place to safely restart operations as quickly as possible as their organizations reopen.  Nevertheless, it has become clear that the comprehensive set of AM-Bench measurements cannot be completed on the original schedule, requiring us to delay the AM-Bench conference and challenge problems by one year.  The conference venue has accordingly been rebooked for August 15-18, 2022.

  • April 2022:                  All details about the 2021 benchmark tests will be publicly disseminated
  • July 2022:                   Deadline for submission of all AM-Bench 2021 challenge modeling results
  • July 2022:                   All AM-Bench 2021 measurement results will be released
  • August 15-18, 2022:   Start of the second AM-Bench Conference, held in the Maryland suburbs outside of Washington, D.C., USA

More detailed dates and the abstract submission and registration deadlines for AM-Bench 2022 will be announced later.
