PLANNED SYMPOSIA -
Place your cursor over each symposia for a detailed description.
2013 and Beyond: Flexible Neural Bioelectronics
This symposium will bring together materials experts in flexible electronics, polymer chemistry, electrical engineering, biophysics, and neuroscience to describe novel approaches for new materials and micro- to nano-scale manufacturing paradigms needed to build reliable central and peripheral nervous system interfaces.
Advances in Surface Engineering: Alloyed and Composite Coatings II
Composite coatings are widely studied for suitability in different applications and for tailoring of properties. This symposium will to bring together researchers from academia, industries, and national laboratories to discuss the issues related to processing, microstructure, and properties of composite and alloyed coatings and to provide further direction for continued research in this field.
Biological Materials Science Symposium
Biological materials science involves the application of materials science and engineering principles to the study of these materials, including the design, synthesis and fabrication of materials systems from biological lessons. This symposium will emphasize the primacy of biological materials to the development of biomaterials and biomimetic materials.
Hybrid and Hierarchical Composite Materials
Hybrid and hierarchical composite materials have several advantageous characteristics that enable their versatile applications for aerospace, automotive, construction, and military sectors. These characteristics include improved mechanical properties (compared with single phase materials) and the ability to tune and optimize the composite microstructure. In this symposium, a broad spectrum of contemporary research efforts will be covered that advance the current status of hybrid and hierarchical composite materials.
Magnesium-Based Biodegradable Implants Symposium
One of the trends in biomedical implants is towards the use of degradable materials, challenging the paradigm that such devices should essentially remain neutral in the body. Magnesium appears to be especially promising in this respect due to its biochemical as well as to its mechanical attributes. The symposium will cover alloy selection and development, manufacturing of the alloys, biological Performance and evaluation, and product design and certification.
Phase Stability, Phase Transformations, and Reactive Phase Formation in Electronic Materials XII
This is the twelfth in a series of TMS symposia addressing the stability, transformation, and formation of phases during the fabrication, processing, and utilization of electronic materials and devices. Topics of interests include phase stability issues surrounding microelectronics.
Physical and Mechanical Metallurgy of Shape Memory Alloys
This symposium will address the growing interest in shape memory alloys (SMAs) actuators in the aerospace, automotive, biomedical, oil, and gas industries. Experts will discuss these issues with an emphasis on the relevant metallurgical properties of these alloys.
Recent Developments in Biological, Electronic, and Functional Thin Films and Coatings
The objective of this symposium is to provide a forum to identify critical problems, stimulate new ideas, provide promising solutions, assess possible roadmaps, as well as discuss fundamental and applied topics in biological, electronic, and functional thin films and coatings.
Refractory Metals 2013
This event will gather experts in the field of refractory metal based alloys and compounds to discuss the status and directions for materials and processes to be used in future space, energy, transportation, and other systems. These systems demand structural materials that can maintain their stability, environmental resistance, and mechanical properties at the high temperatures driven by ongoing technological advancements.
Symposium on High Entropy Alloys
This symposium will provide a new venue for presentation of research on the fundamental understanding and theoretical modeling of high-entropy alloy (HEA) processing and mechanical behavior.
