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.

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
