Be a part of MS&T 2005 by submitting your abstract at www.matscitech.org The abstract deadline for MS&T is March 15, 2005!
Materials Science & Technology (MS&T) is the ultimate experience in materials science and engineering gatherings. Organized by ASM International, the American Ceramic Society (ACerS), the Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST), The American Welding Society (AWS), and The Minerals Metals and Materials Society (TMS), MS&T is the only event that truly spans the entire spectrum of materials science and engineering technologies.
Featured programming includes an entire session on nanoscale science and engineering organized by Bill Madia of Battelle. Dr. Madia is the recipient of the ASM/TMS Distinguished Lectureship for 2005 and he has assembled a marquee set of presenters to participate in his session. These presenters include:
# John H. Marburger III, Director, Office of Science Technology Policy
# Steve Jurvetson, Managing Director, Draper Fisher Jurvetson
# Pat Dehmer (invited), Director, Department of Energy, Office of Basic Energy Sciences
These speakers will address nanoscale science from the perspective of the Executive Office, the venture capital community, and the government research community. This session is must attend session for anyone involved or interested in nanoscale science and engineering. Complimenting this session is another on Nanotechnology organized by William Mullins, C. Suryanarayana and Jeremy Burdon.
The Materials Applications for Homeland Security session, organized by Al Romig and T.J. Allard of Sandia National Labs, and Vinayak P. Dravid of Northwestern University is another must-attend session. Speakers include:
# Penrose C. Albright, Ph.D., Assistant Secretary, Department of Homeland Security
# John Vitko, Biological Countermeasures Portfolio Manager, Science and Technology Directorate, Department of Homeland Security
# Capt. Vincent Doherty, Special Operations, City of New York Fire Department
# Major General Timothy J. Lowenberg, Adjutant General, State of Washington
Each speaker brings a different perspective on the materials needs for homeland security ranging from local, to statewide, to national and international. This session is sure to provide useful information for researchers and commercial entities alike.
For a truly international perspective, the Science and Technology of Powder Metallurgy is the symposium for you. Organized by Leon Shaw, Eugene Al Olevsky, Fernand Marquis, Iver Anderson, and James Adair. Invited speakers representing a global perspective on Powder Metallurgy include:
# Prof. Mohan J. Edirisinghe from the University of London
# Prof. Doh-Yeon Kim of Seoul National University
# Prof. Hiroya Abe of the Joining and Welding Research Institute, Japan
# Dr. Gert Leitner from Institut Keramische Technologien und Sinterwerkstoffe, Germany
This symposium encourages participation by student presenters as well. Student presentations will be considered for an award by the TMS Powder Materials Committee.
Finally, the Materials for the Hydrogen Economy session organized by John Petrovic (Los Alamos National Lab), Iver E. Anderson (Iowa State University), Thad Matthew Adams (Westinghouse Savannah River Co), Gary Sandrock (SunaTech Inc), Colleen F. Legzdins (Ballard Power Systems), and Jeffrey W. Stevenson and Z. Gary Yang (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory) will continue the excellent programming held on this topic over the last several years. Sessions are planned in the areas of hydrogen production, hydrogen storage, and fuel cells. Speakers already planning to participate include:
# JoAnn Milliken, DOE/EERE/HFCIT: “Government Programs on Hydrogen”
# George Parks, Conoco-Phillips: “Hydrogen Production and Delivery”
# Sunita Satyapal, DOE/EERE/HFCIT: “The National Hydrogen Storage Project”
# Charles Stone, Ballard Power Systems: “Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells for Vehicles”
# Tim Rehg, GE Power Systems: “Solid Oxide Fuel Cells for Stationary Power Generation”
# Harriet Kung, DOE/SC/BES: “Hydrogen Basic Materials Research Needs”
If your work is in hydrogen, you need to be there.
In addition to these symposia, there are symposia on Failure Analysis, Coatings, Creep Deformation, Joining of Monolithis Structures and Components, Green Manufacturing, and a special symposium that will address the challenging questions: What makes a good materials engineer — and what’s the best way to education them?
MS&T 2005 spans the spectrum from research and development to application and engineering. Technical sessions will appeal to a broad audience and anyone involved in materials science and engineering is sure to find something that will help them accomplish their personal and professional goals. So, come be a part of the entire spectrum of materials science & engineering. Submit your abstract today.
MS&T ‘05 — Where Theory Meets Application…Where Scientists Meet Engineers…Where Technology Meets the Future.
