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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
