Register Today!
TMS
Posted on: 7/14/2014 ... The First TMS Summit on Creating and Sustaining Diversity in the Minerals, Metals, and Materials Professions (DMMM1) begins in two weeks in Washington, D.C. Here’s a brief preview of what you can expect at this inaugural event.

Following opening remarks from Elizabeth Holm of Carnegie Mellon University and Corale Brierley of the National Academy of Engineering, the event will kick off with a series of keynote presentations representing academia, industry, and government. The following keynotes are planned:
  • Opening Plenary: "The State of Diversity in the Profession" by Mary Galvin, National Science Foundation
  • Industry Keynote: "Diversity Today: What Does It Mean, and Why Does It Matter?" by Dawne Hickton, RTI International Metals
  • Academia Keynote: "Attracting and Retaining Women in Engineering and the Physical Sciences: The Academic Experience" by Linda Abriola, Tufts University
  • Government Keynote: "Diversity in Materials Technologies – A Navy/Government Perspective" by Johnnie DeLoach, Naval Surface Warfare Center
The DMMM1 event will also include:
  • Panel discussions with invited speakers
  • Working sessions that focus on actions to increase diversity in our field
  • Training sessions with diversity experts that will help attendees to identify cultural patterns that impact their workplace and to learn how to overcome personal barriers to success
Register today for DMMM1, which begins July 29 in Washington, D.C.

Public Comment Sought on MGI Strategic Plan
Respond by July 21
TMS
Posted on: 7/9/2014 ... The National Science and Technology Council's Committee on Technology, Subcommittee on the Materials Genome Initiative (SMGI) requests public comments on the draft 2014 Materials Genome Initiative Strategic Plan. Responses must be received by July 21, 2014, to be considered.

In June 2011, President Obama launched the Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) to help scientists and innovators discover, develop, and deploy new materials twice as fast as today. What began with a modest investment by four Federal agencies only three years ago has now expanded to include participation by a wide range of public and private stakeholders, including universities, companies, professional scientific societies, and Federal agencies.

The SMGI developed this strategic plan to outline the near-term steps the Federal government will take to achieve the vision put forth by MGI. It defines the high-level goals and priorities for the Initiative by describing each of four strategic goals and the objectives and near-term milestones needed to meet these goals. This strategic plan also describes scientific and technical challenges identified by experts from the materials science and engineering communities that impede progress in nine materials classes and that MGI can help address. The experimental and computational tools and scientific cultural evolution emerging from MGI can be directly applied to overcoming these scientific and technical challenges, and others that will emerge in the future, to meet the President's directive for more rapid discovery and deployment of advanced materials. The SMGI is seeking public comment on this strategic plan (available at http://www.nist.gov/mgi/upload/MGI-StrategicPlan-2014.pdf) in advance of finalizing the document for publication.

Instructions on reviewing and commenting on the report can be found here.
