Call for Presentations - 3D fab+print Conference at MEDICA / COMPAMED 2018

3D fab+print are now accepting applications to present at the 3D fab+print Conference during MEDICA / COMPAMED on November 12, 2018 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Medical is one of the fastest growing application areas of 3D printing / Additive Manufacturing. After a very successful first 3D fab+print Seminar at MEDICA / COMPAMED in 2017, this year Additive Manufacturing will again be addressed at the yearly international trade fair for medical professionals in Düsseldorf, Germany.

On Monday, November 12 a full-day Conference on Additive Manufacturing for medical applications will be organised at MEDICA / COMPAMED, where global professionals can gain (more) insight in the most interesting developments. Since the 3D printing market is a rapidly evolving one – especially in the medical field, with application options increasing and being tweaked each day – staying regularly updated on the possibilities of Additive Manufacturing is vital.

The programme will exist of presentations that tie into the specific information need of medical professionals. Both newcomers to Additive Manufacturing and professionals that have already gained an insight (at the 2017 event) will attend the 3D fab+print Conference in November 2018.

The focus of all presentations should be on providing in-depth technical and/or practical information of non-commercial nature.

Suggested abstract/presentation topics include:

  • Bone tissue engineering
  • 3D printed models for surgical planning/practice
  • Prosthetics
  • 3D printing (patient-)specific surgical instruments
  • Orthopaedic implants
  • Bioresorbable materials
  • Bioprinting
  • Metal printing in the implant industry
  • Oral health / cranio-facial implants
  • Legal aspects of medical 3D printing

When you wish to apply to speak, please send a prospective title and short abstract (200–300 words) together with your name, function title, company name and full company address details (including your email address should this differ from the address your email is sent from) to Jolanda Heunen at by June 5th latest.

Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified by June 12th 2018 latest. When your submitted abstract is accepted, you will receive a complimentary ticket for the 3D fab+print Conference including a 1-day entrance ticket to MEDICA / COMPAMED.

Tickets to attend the Conference will be available by August via the Messe Düsseldorf ticketshop. Regular updates will be published on
