This symposium will explore emerging technologies, practices, and training and certification processes, and will describe their effect on improving the reliability and consistency of thermal spray coatings, which are vital for industry production.
The two-day program will feature presentations from renowned thermal spray practitioners, engineers and scientists. Sessions include Process/Coating Monitoring and Control, Materials and Surface Preparation, Coating Properties and Performance, Training and Standardization, and Modeling and Application.
Organizers include Dr. Christian Moreau, Dr. Basil Marple, and Dr. Jean-Gabriel Legoux of the National Research Council (NRC), Canada; Luc Pouliot, Tecnar Automation, Canada; Lysa Russo, SUNY at Stonybrook, US; and Warren Nelson, GE Energy, US. A facility tour of the National Research Council facilities will be offered on Dec. 3.
Special registration fees are available to members of ASM International, TSS, DVS and GTS. For details and to register, visit http://www.asminternational.org/tsrc08/. For information about sponsorship opportunities, contact Kelly Thomas at 440.338.1733, or email@example.com.
TSS is an Affiliate Society of ASM International, The Materials Information Society. Founded in 1994, the ASM Thermal Spray Society has grown to a membership of approximately 1,500 individuals around the globe representing over 500 leading companies, research institutions and universities. We are committed in promoting thermal spray technology and serving our members to create value for them individually and for the organizations they represent.
Recognized globally for research and innovation, the National Research Council (NRC) is a leader in the development of an innovative, knowledge-based economy for Canada through science and technology. The NRC’s Industrial Materials Institute (NRC-IMI), one of the twenty NRC institutes, is a research and development centre focused on materials, their formulation and forming, as well as the control of their processes. NRC-IMI works primarily in the metallurgy, polymer, aerospace, automotive and biomedical sectors. It helps Canadian companies meet the risks of the new economy by providing them competitive advantages and the required leverage to grasp opportunities.

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
