Become an SME Conference Author
SME has a number of opportunities for you to share your expertise, research, and experiences with other industry colleagues. SME produces many conferences each year of all sizes. The larger conferences focus on comprehensive industry developments and case studies while SME’s smaller events are dedicated to topical or regional specializations.
Becoming an author or speaker at an SME-sponsored conference provides you and your company with exposure to other experts in your industry from all over the globe. It also makes possible the dissemination of important technological developments that move the industry forward. SME conferences often include print or electronic proceedings, or informal publishing of preprints and presentations.
