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.About the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting & Exhibition

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...
Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.
When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...
Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.
Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur
What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
