Join us in Boston, Massachusetts for the in-person 38th American Society for Precision Engineering Annual Meeting featuring a tutorial program, technical and poster presentations, a student challenge, a commercial exhibition, commercial sessions, technical tours and social functions.

The Boston Park Plaza is situated in an ideal setting, just steps away from Boston Common, the Public Garden, the Theater District and many of the city’s most popular historical sites. Having recently completed a $100 million renovation, The Boston Park Plaza is a destination itself.

The ASPE Annual Meeting promises many opportunities for learning, networking and recruiting.  In addition, technical exhibits will put you face-to-face with experts from commercial suppliers of precision engineering products and services.  Technical sessions will focus on these areas:

  • Controls and Mechatronics
  • Metrology Systems
  • Precision Design
  • Precision Manufacturing
  • Micro-Nano Technologies
  • Surface Characterization and Applications of Measurement Science

The submitted short abstracts are intended for committee review and not publicly available (released). Extended abstracts are included as part of the conference proceedings published the week of the conference when they are made available to all attendees.
