Welcome to EBAM 2023

EBAM is the acronym for International Conference on Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing. The conference aims to discuss specific challenges and opportunities for additive manufacturing offered by the electron beam. EBAM brings together researchers and industrial users to accomplish improvements in this technology. Since the first EBAM in 2016, the interest in this topic has increased even further with an enormous number of submissions from around the world.

EBAM 2023

Due to the ongoing uncertainties regarding the COVID’19 pandemic, we decided to postpone the next EBAM conference to 2023.

EBAM 2023 will be held from 22 – 24 March 2023 at the Kreuz+Quer, Erlangen, Germany. We hope that the wide range of inspiring talks — including the invited keynote presentations from academics as well as industry in combination with high-quality poster presentations — initiates various fruitful discussions and future cooperation.

The scientific focus includes but is not limited to the following topics:

  • Powder manufacturing and powder recovery
  • Process observation and control
  • New/Modified EBAM technologies
  • Processing and properties of all kind of metallic/intermetallic alloys and composites
  • Secondary and finishing operations
  • Modelling and simulation

Abstract Submission and registration opens in autumn 2022.


EBAM is organised by the Chair of Materials Science and Engineering for Metals (WTM) together with the Cluster of Excellence Engineering of Advanced Materials (EAM).

Organisation is supported by the Joint Institute of Advanced Materials and Processes (ZMP) and the Collaborative Research Centers “Additive Manufacturing” (SFB 814) and “Superalloy Single Crystals” (SFB/TR 103).
