The new specialty meeting is an outcome of the TMS Alliance of the Americas initiative to build Society partnerships in North and South America.
“I am excited that the TMS Board of Directors has authorized our collaborative efforts with the Brazilian Metallurgy, Materials, and Minerals Society to co-sponsor the 1st TMS-ABM International Materials Congress to be held in 2010 in Rio de Janeiro. We look forward to this being the first step in a continuing series of meetings to broaden the interactions of metallurgists and materials scientists in South and North America,” said TMS President Ray Peterson. “That this program is moving ahead is a testament to the great efforts of TMS members as well as the strong reputation of TMS as an international partner.”
The conference focuses on a broad range of contemporary issues in materials science and engineering. Currently, there are seven planned symposia. They are: Characterization and Application of Biomaterials; Dynamic Behavior of Materials; Composite Materials; Light Weight Materials for Transportation; Materials and Society; Mechanical Properties of Materials with Emphasis on Grain-size Effects; and Computational Modeling and Advanced Characterization.
Abstracts are being accepted for the 1st TMS-ABM International Materials Congress through November 30. For more information or to submit an abstract, visit www.tms.org/meetings/specialty/ABM-TMS/home.aspx.
TMS is the professional organization encompassing the entire range of materials science and engineering, from minerals processing and primary metals production to basic research and the advanced applications of materials. Included among its 11,200 professional and student members are metallurgical and materials engineers, scientists, researchers, educators, and administrators from six continents. TMS is committed to environmental responsibility as we fulfill our mission to promote global science and engineering by going green at our headquarters, conferences, and through membership communication. Join us by reducing, reusing, and recycling.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.
The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
