*** WTEC's Additive/Subtractive Manufacturing Workshop ***

* DECEMBER 2, 2003 at the National Science Foundation in Arlington, VA *


Learn about the current trends and directions in Additive/Subtractive
Manufacturing from a panel of experts who are completing a broad study of
European research and development in the subject. The workshop will be held
at the National Science Foundation, Room 555 in the Stafford II
building on December 2, 2003.

WTEC's panel is chaired by Prof. Joseph J. Beaman, Jr.,
Department Chair, Mechanical Engineering Department., University of
Texas at Austin, and includes experts (listed below) with broad
strengths and experience in additive manufacturing.
