2005 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Student Info
The TMS 2005 Annual Meeting & Exhibition offers students, interested in materials science and engineering, a variety of opportunities to gather technical information, explore career possibilities, and network with students and professionals in the field.
Student members of Material Advantage or TMS may attend all of the technical sessions, exhibits, and lectures held Monday through Thursday on a complimentary basis.
Students have the opportunity to partially defray their conference expenses by serving as session monitors. Monitors are responsible for assisting the session chair, recording session attendance, and assisting with audio/visual equipment. Monitor positions have been pre-assigned, but each day a limited number of openings will be available to cover cancellations. Pre-assigned students, and students interested in being wait-listed for daily openings, must report to Authors’ Coffee, Level II of the Moscone West Convention Center each morning by 8:00 am. Monitor positions will be assigned on a first-come basis.
Don’t forget to select a representative and submit the TMS Travel Reimbursement Program form and travel receipts, granting each chapter up to $500 per calendar year to send student(s) to TMS conferences!
Division Travel Scholarships
Three of the five technical divisions of TMS offer a limited number of travel scholarships of $500 each to student members interested in attending the TMS 2005 Annual Meeting & Exhibition. At present, this assistance is provided by the Electronic, Magnetic & Photonic Materials Division; the Structural Materials Division; and the Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division. Application Deadline: December 15, 2004.
To apply, send a letter of application (e-mail is welcome), stating what meeting you wish to attend and why to the following:
Your letter must mention which division’s technical programming you are interested in and complete information on how you can be contacted. If we cannot contact you, your award will be forfeited. Your letter will be reviewed by a subcommittee of the appropriate sponsoring division, and this group will select the applicants to receive the travel scholarships. Those receiving travel scholarships will be contacted by TMS Headquarters shortly after a decision is made. Students receiving travel scholarships are responsible for making their own travel and hotel arrangements as well as for registering for the meeting.
