TMS Joins Brazilian Materials Society in Presenting 1st TMS-ABM International Materials Congress

02.09.2009
The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) will join the Brazilian Metallurgy, Materials, and Minerals Society (ABM) to present the 1st TMS-ABM International Materials Congress in conjunction with the 65th ABM Congress convening July 26–30, 2010, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

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.

About TMS

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.

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: Scientists decipher key principle behind reaction of metalloenzymes

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
