29th Annual Meeting of the
American Society for Precision Engineering
Sunday – Friday
November 9-14, 2014
The Westin Boston Waterfront
Boston, Massachusetts USA
Mark L. Schattenburg, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
This year’s ASPE Annual Meeting will be held at The Westin Boston Waterfront in the vibrant, revitalized community of South Boston Waterfront. Boston’s waterfront is booming with restaurants, harbor walks, museums and history. With its mix of colonial charm and urban sophistication, Boston is a dynamic site for meetings of all kind.
Getting to Boston is easy. Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) is New England’s largest transportation center with more than 40 airlines flying nonstop to BOS. Once you arrive in Boston, you will find its accessibility is unparalleled. It’s easy to see the sights on foot, but Boston also has an excellent public transportation system.
ASPE is pleased to welcome Dr. Mark Johnson as the this year’s keynote speaker. Dr. Johnson currently serves as the Director of the Advanced Manufacturing Office in the U.S. Department of Energy under the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. The Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) is focused on creating a fertile innovation environment for advanced manufacturing, enabling vigorous domestic development of new energy-efficient manufacturing processes and materials technologies to reduce the energy intensity and life-cycle energy consumption of manufactured products.
The 2014 American Society for Precision Engineering Annual Meeting will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of the latest technical information and achievements in precision engineering. The meeting will introduce new concepts, processes, equipment, and products while highlighting recent advances in precision measurement, design, control, and fabrication. The program includes a series of oral and poster paper presentations, tutorials on precision engineering topics, exhibits displaying the state-of-the-art in precision engineering products and research, a commercial session for industrial presentations, an open forum, social events, and tours of local precision engineering facilities.
