ISSI-2: Invited Presentations

September 21-25, 1997 · Champion, Pennsylvania

ISSI-2 Logo The 2nd International Symposium on Structural Intermetallics (ISSI-2), sponsored by the High Temperature Alloys and Titanium Committees of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society's (TMS's) Structural Materials Division will be held at the Seven Springs Mountain Resort, Champion, Pennsylvania, Sunday, September 21, through Thursday, September 25, 1997. As described in the following, a number of leading researchers in the field of intermetallics have been invited to present in-depth topical discussions. These presentations, as well as contributed papers, will be delivered throughout the meeting during the scheduled technical sessions. See the calendar of events for more information.


The following presentation will be delivered Sunday Evening, September 21, 1997, after the symposium dinner and prior to the welcoming reception.
