AMPM2021: Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy Conference

Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin • Orlando, Florida

June 20–23, 2021

Watch a brief Preview of what you can expect at PowderMet2021, AMPM2021, and Tungsten2021.

We know travel plans are uncertain right now, but we are moving forward with our campaign for a professionally rewarding conference. As in the past, MPIF will strive to make this a safe and enjoyable conference, with controlled networking events, including our acclaimed exhibit hall. If plans for our conference change, presenters and exhibitors will be among the first to know. If your ability to present at PowderMet2021 changes, just let us know ASAP so that we can update the program before it is finalized.

 Call for Papers & Posters

Focusing on metal additive manufacturing, AMPM2021 will feature worldwide industry experts presenting the latest technology developments in this fast-growing field. Explore a growing industry, network with metal AM industry leaders, and discover 100+ exhibitors in the metal AM, powder metallurgy, and particulate materials world.

Submit your technical paper or poster to be considered for inclusion in the 2021 technical program.

All technical papers will be included in the conference proceedings, and highly-rated papers will also be included in the APMI’s International Journal of Powder Metallurgy or Select Manuscripts distribution.

Abstract Submission Deadline: November 13, 2020

Submit an Abstract

Technical Sessions
Regular technical sessions include papers of original and unpublished work addressing recent advances in the full spectrum of powder metallurgy & particulate materials technologies. The technical sessions are forums to review and publicize recent work contributing to the state of the art and/or discussing emerging areas of interest. All submissions should clearly outline the results of the latest research, innovations, or improvements in PM processing or products.

All accepted abstracts will require manuscripts prior to presentation at the conference.

Contact Deb Stab with questions.


  • Design & Modeling of PM Materials, Components & Processes
  • Particulate Production
  • General Compaction & Forming Processes
  • Powder Injection Molding (Metals & Ceramics)
  • Pre-Sintering & Sintering
  • Secondary Operations
  • Materials
  • Refractory Metals, Carbides & Ceramics
  • Advanced Particulate Materials & Processes
  • Material Properties
  • Test & Evaluation
  • Applications
  • Management Issues

Abstracts submitted for the general technical session programming will not be considered for poster presentation.

All accepted abstracts will require manuscripts prior to presentation at the conference.

Poster Program
This presentation format is suitable for authors who wish to report important work in-progress—research that catches the cutting edge of powder metallurgy or particulate technology.

The poster format lends itself to reporting preliminary research results which may have large potential for industrial development, or simply where this alternate form of presentation is deemed more attractive. In certain cases, authors of abstracts submitted for the general technical session programming will be requested to consider submitting for poster presentation.

All poster program participants will be eligible for Poster Awards. Manuscript submission is encouraged but not mandatory.
