MSEC 2008

Dear U.S. participants,
The international Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (MSEC), is the flagship annual forum sponsored by the Manufacturing Engineering Division (MED) of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) to disseminate the most recent results in manufacturing research and development through both technical papers and panel sessions. This is the 3rd MSEC since its inauguration in 2006 and has been recognized as the premier meeting of our division.

Dear International participants,
To promote international collaboration in advancing manufacturing science and technologies, MSEC is set to be an international conference and its publication is indexed by EI. Starting from 2008, ASME will co-host the event with an international partner. For 2008, it is the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME). For 2009 and after, please contact the executive committee members (http://divisions.asme.org/med/committees/exec.html) if your society is interested in co-hosting the event.
