About HI-AM 2024: Nexus Forum

HI-AM 2024: Nexus Forum is the 7th annual gathering of the NSERC Network for Holistic Innovation in Additive Manufacturing (HI-AM). While this event marks the conclusion of the HI-AM Network, it does not signify the end of our Canadian additive manufacturing initiative. We're excited to announce the continuation of our research programs and conference under HI-AM 2.0, supported by the NSERC Alliance program.

HI-AM 2024 is exclusive to network members, focusing on collaborative strategies for the next five years. The conference will return in 2025, open to all, with regular abstract submissions. We look forward to welcoming you at HI-AM 2025!
