The Fifth International Symposium on Superalloys 718, 625, 706, and Derivatives, sponsored by The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), will be held June 17-20, 2001, at the Embassy Suites Hotel, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

This is the premier symposium devoted exclusively to superalloys 718, 625, and 706. It follows in the tradition of the four previous meetings which were very successful in exploring the state of knowledge on these most important superalloys. The corresponding proceedings volumes are acknowledged as the single-source reference on the progress and problems from 1989 to 1997, and it is expected that this millennial meeting will continue the tradition.

Situated between wooded hillsides at the point where the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers converge to form the Ohio River, Pittsburgh is one of America’s most scenic cities. With average daily high temperatures of 80 degrees, June is a very pleasant time to visit Pittsburgh.

While in Pittsburgh, you will want to take an incline ride up Mt. Washington, but inclines are not the only mode of travel in or to the city. Pittsburgh is a very accessible city. The convenient subway, light rail, and bus systems enable any destination within the city to be about a half-hour ride. Easy entrance to a network of interstate highways (East-West: I-70, I-76, I-80, I-376; North South: I-79, I-579, I-279) puts Pittsburgh within a day’s drive of most Eastern US cities, and the Pittsburgh International Airport has made the city conveniently accessible from anywhere in the world.

Pittsburgh is a city blessed with a rich history, as well as culturally rich and diverse communities. From these traditions, the city has a wide offering of attractions ranging from art museums to zoos. Attendees can easily take advantage of the many entertainment, cultural, and dining opportunities the city has to offer. The “Strip District” is a smorgasbord of dining and entertainment option. The Carnegie Science Center has been called “The Amusement Park for the Mind”. The city is rich in cultural activities and is home to hundreds of performing arts groups. And don’t forget Pittsburgh sports, with major league championship teams like Pirates baseball, there is always a big game in town.
