Additive 2024 Symposium: Exploring the Future of Materials and Additive Manufacturing

The anticipation builds for Additive 2024, the 4th Symposium on Materials and Additive Manufacturing. This year, a new twist awaits as we expand our horizons to include Berlin as a second symposium location. Curious about the reasons behind this expansion? Read on to discover the exciting developments.

The countdown to the holiday season is in full swing, and with the arrival of 2024, a significant event for the world of materials science and additive manufacturing is just around the corner – Additive 2024, the 4th Symposium on Materials and Additive Manufacturing.

This year, Additive 2024 brings a fresh perspective by introducing Berlin as a second symposium location alongside Bremen. The Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM), our esteemed host in Berlin, adds a new dimension to the symposium's diverse offerings.

BAM, a distinguished federal institution in the realm of science and technology, operates under the umbrella of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action in Germany. Their core mission is to conduct testing, research, and offer expert guidance to ensure the protection of individuals, the environment, and valuable material assets. BAM is known for setting and maintaining stringent safety benchmarks in the fields of technology and chemistry, and their global reach extends far beyond Germany's borders.

At Additive 2024, BAM will be hosting three of the 13 symposium topics, guaranteeing top-notch insights into quality assurance in additive manufacturing.

Choosing Your Location

For participants of the Additive Symposium 2024, the choice is yours: attend in Bremen, Berlin, or join us online. Regardless of the location you select, you'll have full access to all presentations.

Speakers and presenters planning to participate on-site must choose their location based on the topic they want to contribute to. A glance at the Topic Overview will help you determine which topics are scheduled at each location. If you plan to present your work online, this choice is not necessary.

Every session will be available both live and on-demand, ensuring comprehensive access to all symposium content.

Symposium Topics

The heart of Additive 2024 lies in its focus on modern technological trends and new developments in materials science for metal additive manufacturing. The symposium will encompass all methods of metal additive manufacturing, including laser and electron beam melting, binder jetting, direct energy deposition, and others. Key topics to be covered include:

Bremen & Online

  • AM processing of titanium, aluminum, nickel-based alloys, copper, and other metallic metals
  • Mechanical properties of parts and assurance of their reproducibility
  • In-situ heat treatment, post-heat treatment, and mechanical post-processing
  • Microstructure evolution and its influence on material properties
  • New alloys for metal additive manufacturing
  • Graded properties of additively manufactured parts
  • Multi-material AM
  • Powder development and recycling aspects
  • Simulation-based development of AM processes and materials
  • Formation and effects of defects

Berlin & Online

  • Process monitoring and process quality assurance
  • Non-destructive testing and part quality assurance
  • Mechanical properties of parts and assurance of their reproducibility

Share Your Expertise!

We extend a special invitation to all, particularly young scientists, to share your valuable knowledge at Additive 2024. Seize this exceptional opportunity to present your research to an audience of experts and foster connections within the additive manufacturing community. Mark your calendars for the approaching submission deadline for lectures, oral-posters, and posters on 15 February 2024.

See You in Bremen, Berlin, or Virtually!
