Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

After ongoing consultation with respective Officers of NAMRI, ASME-MED, and JSME-LEM&P, the in-person co-located conference of MSEC, NAMRC and LEMP 2020 has been canceled. The decision has been reached to protect the health and wellness of the global academicians, government and industry researchers, engineers, students and leaders in manufacturing who make up the collocated manufacturing conferences community. Importantly, ASME, SME, and JSME organizations will be publishing the accepted papers in 2020 without oral presentation through their usual channels.

  • ASME will be moving forward with the publication of MSEC and LEMP fully reviewed and accepted papers in a 2020 proceedings
  • NAMRI SME will move forward with the publication of NAMRC 48 proceedings through Procedia Manufacturing published by Elsevier, as has been done in previous years. NAMRI SME would like to thank Elsevier for their continued support in these unprecedented times. We have removed the presentation clause for all original, basic and applied research in advanced manufacturing.
  • Virtual offerings by MSEC (ASME) and LEMP (JSME) are under consideration. Please check back with ASME for updates.
  • The Manufacturing Engineering Division of ASME is celebrating its Centennial in 2020. While the in-person celebration has been moved to 2021, many other activities will continue throughout the year, see details here on the MED Centennial page.

University of Cincinnati will be hosting NAMRC 49 – MSEC 2021 from June 21-25, 2021. We look forward to seeing you next June, and we profoundly thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
