The 3rd International Symposium on Structural Intermetallics (ISSI-3),
sponsored by the Titanium, High Temperature Alloys, and Refractory Metals
Committees of The Minerals, Metals & Materials
Society's (TMS's) Structural Materials
Division will be held at the Snow
King Resort, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, April 28-May 2, 2002.
ISSI-3 is a major international conference held every four years on
the research, development, design with, and application of intermetallic
compounds and composites. The conference is intended to bring together
not only researchers, but also potential users and producers of such materials
to conduct an open information exchange on matters that will enhance the
progress of these materials. The format and approach of this conference
will build upon the proven concepts of the International
Symposium on Superalloys (Seven Springs Conference), the Gordon Conferences,
and the previous ISSI Conferences.
Particular aspects to be emphasized in ISSI-3 include:
- Longer, insightful presentations, which focus on real progress and
trends over the preceding four years, rather than only recent results.
- Extended discussion periods to facilitate focus on critical issues
- A balance of presentations covering basic research, alloy development,
product design, applications, and business issues related to intermetallic
- Stringent acceptance requirements for invited and submitted papers
to ensure a high quality of presentations.
- Meeting at a single location, with common lodging and an informal
atmosphere to foster interactions among participants.
- Published proceedings available at the symposium.
Technical sessions will be held in the mornings and evenings. The afternoons
will be open for leisure. Several social activities are planned. It is
anticipated that the environment provided by this conference will lead
to improved communication between scientists, engineers, and designers,
which is crucial to the successful advancement of intermetallic alloys.
The Titanium, High Temperature Alloys, and Refractory Metals Committees
of TMS are sponsoring ISSI-3.
The ISSI-3 symposium will have a strong emphasis on the rolethat affordability,
reliability, and design play in developingnew materials for use in aerospace
applications. Invited andcontributed presentations will outline the design
and businessconstraints associated with the introduction of new materials,address
reliability and performance issues specic to intermetallicalloys, and
highlight recent advances in our understandingof processing-structure-property
relations in these alloys.This meeting will provide a forum in which engineering
designerscan dialog with materials and process engineers and scientistsand
