LOVELAND, Colorado, February 11, 2014 – Longview Advisors, organizers of the annual 3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress (3DCIC), today announced a keynote speaker for its 2014 event.
Dr. Ted Hall, a true pioneer in personal digital fabrication, founder and CEO of ShopBot Tools, Inc. and co-founder of www.100kGarages.com, will present “ Will the Next Industrial Revolution be about Digital Blacksmiths?” Ted will discuss the role local communities of makers, armed with personal fabrication tools and the Internet, can and will play in global supply chains. He will make a case for the competitiveness of digital cottage industries in global marketplaces, and discuss scenarios for the emerging next generation, "distributed," industrial revolution. He’ll also present his views on the evolving utilization of personal digital technologies in manufacturing, and their related impact on job creation.
3DCIC is dedicated to fostering and improving collaboration and interoperability throughout the product lifecycle. Now in its eleventh year, 3DCIC is the only vendor-neutral event in the world addressing collaboration and interoperability in manufacturing and business communications. The three-day international event gives attendees a unique opportunity to network, learn and strategize with thought leaders from a broad array of commercial and defense industries, as well as with representatives from government. 3DCIC has become a yearly barometer of the state of collaboration and interoperability strategy, technology and solutions across discrete manufacturing.
Organizers are pleased to announce that NAFEMS (the International Association of the Engineering Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Community – www.nafems.org) is holding their biennial American conference in conjunction with 3DCIC 2014. In addition, the PDES Board of Directors will again hold their annual meeting at 3DCIC and the 3D PDF consortium will be joining again for its third annual meeting.
Registration is open on the web site. Interested attendees are encouraged to register soon as time-limited discounts currently apply.
Presentations and audio from past events are freely available at the congress website www.3DCIC.com, along with comments from past attendees, and a list of past attendees.
