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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
