Conference Program


Additive Manufacturing Standards Development and Coordination

8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

This session will provide a short overview of the “Standardization Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing”, along with a lively discussion amongst leaders from industry, academia and standards development organizations on the current and future state of AM standards.

Recycling and Re-use of Composites – Sustainability for Market Expansion

9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Hear from a global panel of recycling experts as they discuss the latest information regarding the state of composites recycling technologies, and the potential opportunities for manufacturers to turn scrap from a cost into a value-added raw material.


The Internet of Things (IoT) and the Digital Thread for Composites Part Manufacturing

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

This panel will introduce and discuss key elements of Internet of Things (IoT) and Digital Thread technologies, and then further elaborate on new opportunities positively impacting production yields & quality, serviceability, and potentially introducing new business models.


Additive Manufacturing in the Sustainment Environment

3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Subject matter experts from industry, academia, and the Air Force will review the "Additive Manufacturing for Sustainment" program within the AFRL, which has demonstrated additive manufacturing for both direct part replacement of long lead time parts and for manufacturing aides such as tooling, fixtures, jigs, and masks for surface treatment applications.


Modeling & Simulation: Integrated Computational Methods for Composite Materials

3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

This panel will discuss the integration challenges and accomplishments from ICM2, and lay out lessons learned on integrating composite analysis methods.
