30th ASPE Annual Meeting
Sunday – Friday
November 1-6, 2015
Hyatt Regency Austin Austin, Texas USA
Luis A. Aguirre, 3M Company
Welcome to Austin!
Austin Texas, which used to be a small town, has grown tremendously over the last 30 years. The Austin from the 1980s was relaxed, artistic, and eccentric with dozens of hole–in-the-wall bars and eateries – everything you needed for a fun time. The current Austin, also creative and mainly fueled by the local universities, is a tech-savvy community with many diversified startup companies. This stimulating environment has made Austin a very attractive city with still numerous 1980s landmarks that has attracted successful events like SXSW, X Games and Formula 1. All this will make a great backdrop for our 30th Annual Meeting, where we’ll showcase the latest trends in precision engineering from around the world. Like Austin, ASPE keeps getting better and we’ll have the latest in tutorials, exhibitions and presentations on machine design and controls, metrology, micro-nano technologies and manufacturing. We’ll kickoff the technical sessions with half of the day dedicated to precision engineering aspects of roll to roll for micro and nano-manufacturing. This has become the latest trend for low cost manufacturing of many precision components. Make sure to be there! Register Now>>

ASPE is bringing back its highly successful Student Competition and Mentoring Program. Students from all over the world will have an opportunity to compete in a specific challenge where teams will draw upon their precision engineering skills to solve a multidisciplinary challenge covering Mechanical, Electrical, Metrology and Controls. During the Mentoring Session, students will have the opportunity to consult one-on-one with precision engineering experts. Interested in Signing Up for the Competition? Find out how>>
