(22 Oct 2021) The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) today announced the launch of the ASME Conference Video Collection, powered by virtual conference and publishing platform Morressier. The user-friendly platform collects and provides long-term access to valuable conference presentation videos from all technology areas within ASME’s technical conference and events program.
More than 30,000 engineers across all mechanical engineering and related disciplines participate in ASME conferences each year. This includes authors of 6,000 to 8,000 technical papers published by ASME, the majority of whom also submit video presentations. With the launch of the ASME Conference Video Collection, this entire set of video presentations and abstracts can now be easily browsed, filtered, and shared with a global audience for increased discoverability and a more inclusive conference experience.
“We are excited to present our new ASME Conference Video Collection, which will complement and enhance the traditional dissemination of engineering research papers from ASME conference proceedings,” says Tim Graves, ASME’s managing director of technical and engineering communities. “In addition to a wide variety of keynote and plenary talk recordings from our conferences, these technical videos offer both a visual and audio view, including anecdotal insights, into the papers by the author and may be easily integrated with university course materials to improve student engagement.”
“The launch of the ASME Conference Video Collection on the Morressier platform is an exciting milestone in this pivotal partnership and marks the beginning of a dramatic change in how conference content is perceived and shared,” says Sami Benchekroun, Morressier CEO and Co-Founder. “I’m very impressed by the innovation-first approach of the ASME team and together, we are helping to unlock engineering breakthroughs to researchers around the globe and increase the impact of this valuable content.”
The ASME Conference Video Collection can be purchased by institutions as an add-on to existing product packages or as a separate subscription. In the future, the collection will also be accessible for individual purchase. For more information, visit the ASME Conference Video Collection at https://go.asme.org/ConferenceVideos
