SNAME hosts hundreds of events every year, from the Society-wide Annual Meeting, to international symposia, to section gatherings.  Beyond venues for personal exchange, networking, and fellowship, SNAME events regularly feature state-of-the-art technical presentations and first-looks at the latest papers and presentations.  

SNAME Calendar


SNAME's online calendars are your hub for information on all SNAME meetings, large and small.  The Society-wide calendar is the place to view all events for the Society.  Members who are logged-in can see events posted by chairs for their sections, committees, and panels.  All SNAME calendar event postings can include links to meeting relevant meeting documents.

Most SNAME microsites utilize a local calendar displaying events of specific interest to the page's hosts.  Check the calendar links of Section Microsites for more information about scheduled local events. 

SNAME Annual Meeting

Throughout its century-plus history, the SNAME Annual Meeting & Expo has been the industry's premier "meeting of the minds."  Held every fall at rotating locations (Houston, Providence and Bellevue), the AM  brings members together for a festive week of information, presentations, fellowship, and fun. Also, a full year's membership in SNAME is included for all non-member attendees (with the completion of an application)/

The 2013 Annual Meeting & Expo will be held on November 6-8 at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue in Bellevue, WA.  Visit the website or contact Alana Anderson at (201) 499-5066 for more information on the overall program, sponsorship opportunities, and other details.  To exhibit, contact Rob Howard at (561) 732-4368.
