Promotional Materials—DUE ASAP

To bring more excitement and to make the event website more interactive, we are asking all speakers to provide the following if at all possible.
  • Photo: Since this will be used for the web site only, a low res version is suitable. We are looking for head shots.
  • Video links: Do you have a short, non-sales video posted online? Relevant videos should be on the topic you will present or of you speaking. Preferred length is less than five minutes.

If you are a panelist (not making a presentations) or moderator, please refer to this page.

We will provide channel switchers with each projector to facilitate connecting speaker laptops and transition between speakers.

Sharing your experience and insights in a written technical paper helps archive manufacturing knowledge for use by practitioners and researchers. The SME archive contains more than 17,000 fully searchable research and case-study papers, which are available as free downloads to SME members and are distributed worldwide through databases and content licenses. Authoring a written technical paper is a personal point of pride and gains recognition for your organization’s technology advancements. Five (5) certification credits are available for authoring a published technical paper, with three (3) additional certification credits given for presenting a technical paper.
