TMS Prepares for Record-Breaking Annual Meeting

01.09.2008
The TMS 2009 Annual Meeting promises to be the largest in the materials society’s 138-year conference history

With more than 3,150 abstract submissions, the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting is shaping up to be the largest in the history of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS). TMS 2009, the 138th installment in this yearly conference series, is scheduled for February 15-19 in San Francisco, California. The number of abstracts submitted for this conference exceeds the previous record by 15%.

The conference theme, "Linking Science and Technology for Global Solutions," describes the mix of fundamental research and industrial application of materials technologies presented at this conference. More than 50 symposia are planned in a number of topical areas, so that TMS 2009 offers something for everyone working in the field of materials science and engineering.

A key focus of this year's conference will be materials and society, a series of symposia that explore the intersection between technology and improvements in quality of life. Topics include replacing hazardous lead in soldering for the electronics industry, reducing energy use and environmental impact for metal-producing industries, and examining recycling and sustainability for the electronic and solar industries.

In addition, the conference will have strong programming in aluminum and magnesium technologies; extraction, processing, structure, and properties; and emerging technology areas such as nanomaterials and biomaterials.

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 9,500 professional and student members are metallurgical and materials engineers, scientists, researchers, educators, and administrators from six continents.

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Coping with errors in the quantum age

Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
