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.

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
