The Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE®) is a global professional member society that provides enhanced educational opportunities, by delivering information on new and advanced materials and processing technology. SAMPE provides growth and educational opportunities via conferences, exhibitions, technical forums, and publications. As the only technical society encompassing all fields of endeavor in materials and processes, SAMPE provides a unique and valuable forum for scientists, engineers, and academicians. SAMPE North America is a regional subsidiary of SAMPE that serves Canada, Mexico, and the United States.
Celebrating SAMPE’s 75th Anniversary, SAMPE 2019 will be held in Charlotte, NC for the first time, allowing SAMPE to showcase the rich offerings of textile and reinforcement technology available in Charlotte and the entire southeastern region of the US. Much of this legacy technology is reinventing itself to become a key contributor to today’s advanced materials marketplace. The technical program content will range from introductory level technology overviews for early career attendees as well as those new to the advanced materials & processes industry to in-depth presentations and panel discussions for the most seasoned technologists.
The conference will include some regional programming that highlights some of the southeastern core businesses. The region is the longtime home of NASCAR and automotive racing, embracing advanced materials and processes in their sport. Boeing is growing and expanding in the Carolinas where advanced materials and processes are used daily to build the 787 Dreamliner in Charleston, SC as Boeing’s Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Greg Hyslop, will highlight during his keynote presentation.
