Princeton Advanced Manufacturing Symposium

Date: April 29, 2024

Venue: Friend Center, Princeton University

Princeton University is hosting a regional Advanced Manufacturing Symposium on April 29, 2024.

The goal for the Princeton Advanced Manufacturing Symposium is to bring together a diverse group of regional experts in the advanced manufacturing of hard and soft materials. We aim to develop a strong community of Mid-Atlantic researchers and national/international industry leaders and identify advanced manufacturing themes around which collaborations could be built based on the regional research expertise. These regional community connections could prove helpful for responding to future government calls for proposals. The symposium will highlight the latest research insights, through keynote and faculty flash talks, and trainee research posters, and offer lots of networking opportunities to build community. We are thrilled that Dr. Chris Spadaccini of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will be presenting a keynote lecture.

Sponsored by Princeton's School of Engineering and Applied Science, the Princeton Materials Institute and Princeton's Departments of Chemical and Biological Engineering and Civil and Environmental Engineering.

  • Sigrid Adriaenssens, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Princeton University
  • Alberto Cuitiño, Dean of Engineering, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

Visitor parking is available at the Stadium Drive Garage.

Visitors are required to register their vehicles by following this parking registration link. The parking permit is valid for 7-days and thus only one permit is needed for the two conference days – you will only need to select the end date – which would be your first day of conference attendance.

Here is a printable copy of the current university map. The shuttle stops are also marked on the map for convenience.

Visitors are able to utilize the complimentary shuttles, Route-1 and Route-4, to be transported from the Stadium Drive Garage to McCosh Walk.

  • Arrival: Board the 7:00am, 7:05am, 7:20am, 7:30am or 7:35am shuttles to be dropped off at the McCosh Walk stop. 
  • Return: Board either the Route-1 or Route-4 shuttle from the stop across from their drop-off.

McCosh Walk to Friend Center is approximately 4 minutes via Shapiro Walk (below map).
