TMS 2009 Annual Meeting & Exhibition Features Leaders from the Aluminum Industry

10.02.2009
Issues related to the economy, energy, and sustainability will be discussed by aluminum industry leaders during a special program of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) 138th Annual Meeting & Exhibition. The 2009 Aluminum Plenary Session will be presented at the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting & Exhibition (February 15–19, 2009) in San Francisco, California.

An outstanding panel of speakers has been organized to review the current economic situation with a comparison to the past and recessions in the metals industry.

The session will consider issues related to the growth of aluminum production, communicate the vision for corporate social responsibility, and reinforce the positive contributions of the aluminum industry to value creation for society.

TMS is extremely pleased to welcome the following speakers to the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting & Exhibition:

• Dave Persampieri, vice president, Charles River Associates, “What Now for Aluminum? The Current Crisis in Perspective and Observations on the Future”

• Dick Evans, chief executive officer, Rio Tinto Alcan, “Aluminum: Four Decades Looking Back and One Decade Looking Forward”

• Jan Arve Haugan, senior vice president of Technology and Part Owned Smelters, Hydro, “Hydro’s Agenda 2010: Technology Focus while Navigating in the Storm”

• Bill O’Rourke, vice president of Sustainability & EHS, Alcoa, “Alcoa’s Sustainability Journey”

The Aluminum Plenary Session will take place in room 2001/2003 on the second floor of the Moscone West Convention Center, Monday, February 15, 2009, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:10 p.m.

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

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...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

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...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

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...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
