Call for Papers

The Rapid.Tech 3D conference provides an ideal platform for the exchange of views and knowledge of industry experts, dealing with all aspects of Additive Manufacturing. User proximity and practical orientation are essential characteristics of the conference.

Due to the pandemic, the 2021 congress took place in a purely virtual manner for the first time. On the two days of the congress, June 22nd and 23rd, 2021, there were more than 50 speakers in nine specialist forums.

For the 18th edition of the Rapid.Tech 3D - 17 to 19 May 2022 - the organizers are again planning a face-to-face event in Erfurt.

The CALL FOR PAPERS for the submission of presentations for the 2022 congress is now open. For your registration you can use our pdf-file or the following form.
