The symposium will open on Sunday evening, September 17, 2000, with a keynote lecture followed by a reception. Technical sessions, consisting of both oral and interactive poster presentations, will run from Monday through Thursday. The Monday-Wednesday technical presentations will be held during both morning and evening sessions, with afternoons available for recreational activities. Presentations will be 25 minutes long with time allotted for extended discussions if desired. The symposium concludes after the Thursday morning oral presentations. The interactive poster sessions will be held concurrently and contain papers related to the topic of the technical session. Opportunities for participants to interact with the poster authors will be provided during one or more "extended" coffee breaks specifically scheduled for this purpose.
The distinctive format and approach of this conference builds on the proven success of the previous eight symposia in this series and has been successfully adopted by other conferences such as the International Symposium on Structural Intermetallics. The goal of the conference is to provide a relaxing and informal environment to foster an open exchange of ideas and information among users, suppliers, and researchers in the field of superalloys. The congenial mood of the symposium is derived, in part, by the rustic setting of the conference, common lodging and dining facilities, informal attire at the technical sessions, and ample time for social interactions with colleagues. All technical presentations are held in a single location with only one session convened at a particular time, thus eliminating the need to move between parallel sessions.
