Researchers from around the world will converge on St. Louis in June to attend the 2012 International Symposium on Flexible Automation, says Dr. Ming C. Leu of Missouri University of Science and Technology.
Leu is chair of the 2012 symposium, which is sponsored by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Institute of Systems, Control and Information Engineers. The meeting will be held June 18-20 at the Marriott Union Station in St. Louis. Researchers from around the world will present the latest advances in flexible automation, advanced manufacturing, nanomanufacturing, biomedical and energy manufacturing, and related topics.
Leu is the Keith and Pat Bailey Missouri Distinguished Professor of Integrated Product Manufacturing at Missouri S&T and director of two major research initiates at S&T – the Center for Aerospace Manufacturing Technologies (CAMT) and the Intelligent Systems Center.
Conference attendees may also participate in one of three post-conference technical tours on June 21. One tour will take attendees to the James S. McDonnell Prologue Room at Boeing headquarters in St. Louis, then to Anheuser-Busch Brewery in St. Louis. A second tour will take attendees to Monsanto in Chesterfield, Mo., and the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis. A third technical tour will take attendees to the CAMT at Missouri S&T in Rolla, Mo., followed by a visit to the Walmart Distribution Center in St. James, Mo.
