Superalloys 718 et al. Logo

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.
