Our hearts go out to those affected by the recent Pittsburgh shootings. Show your support for the victims by donating to the Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh’s Victims of Terror Fund. Donating will provide resources to the survivors, the victims’ families, the first responders, the synagogue, the Jewish community and more broadly to pay for extra security. Donations can be made directly to Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh. Thank you.

Please note that ASME has not engaged any third parties to provide travel and/or hotel assistance on behalf of ASME for the 2018 ASME IMECE in Pittsburgh, PA.


ASME's International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE) is the largest interdisciplinary mechanical engineering conference in the world. IMECE plays a significant role in stimulating innovation from basic discovery to translational application. It fosters new collaborations that engage stakeholders and partners not only from academia, but also from national laboratories, industry, research settings, and funding bodies.
