The international organization, which represents the interests of POM-experts from all over the world, invited the participants to Washington D.C. this year. Not only scientists from all parts of the world but also a lot of industry representatives showed up to inform themselves about new scientific findings in different areas of application. In the context of several speeches, tutorials and discussion boards the relevance and utilization of the POM-research was picked out as a central theme for the specialist community. The Cluster of Excellence Integrative Production Technology for High-Wage Countrieswas represented by Niklas Friederichsen, Melanie Luckert, Anja Weber and Bartholomäus Wolff this year. The colleagues of the Cluster, who all gave lectures on the event, were satisfied with the whole conference.
