The centerpiece of each year is the Pumps & Pipes Symposium in Houston, Texas. From the beginning, this symposium has drawn industry leaders and creative thinkers from Houston and beyond, attracting medical device engineers, cardiovascular physician-scientists, geologists, metallurgists, bioengineers, computer scientists, physicists and many others.

These symposia stimulate discussion, spark ideas and explore synergies between industries that face similar challenges in imaging, navigation, metallurgy, fluid dynamics, robotics, durable materials and remote monitoring. Discoveries range from the obvious spark of “Why didn’t we think of this before?” to the audacious “Why not?” moments of revelation.
