Join TMS as we Celebrate 50 Years as a Member Society of AIME!
In 1957, the year the field of modern fracture mechanics was born, The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society began forging a path, as a member society of the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers, to enable materials scientists and engineers to advance their profession on an international scale. Fifty years later, having built on its strong foundation every year, TMS has partnered with thousands of professionals, young and not-so-young alike, to advance materials science and engineering around the globe through a vast array of interdisciplinary technical learning and networking opportunities, utilizing the latest technologies.
In celebration of TMS’ 50th anniversary, we invite you to participate in these special events at the TMS 2007 Annual Meeting & Exhibition.
