Recognizing Excellence in Minerals, Metals, and Materials

The 2017 TMS-AIME Awards Ceremony and Banquet will be an elegant event, designed to honor the significant professional achievements of members of the minerals, metals, and materials communities. The ceremony includes presentations of awards given by TMS, the TMS Foundation, and the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers (AIME), of which TMS is a member society. Additional awards, including awards from Acta Materialia, will also be presented to TMS members during this ceremony.

The evening will consist of three parts. First, award recipients and their guests will be welcomed at a cocktail reception. Following the reception, participants will be seated for the awards ceremony, where individual recipients will be honored for their accomplishments. A photographer will be on hand to capture these moments. After the ceremony, those participants who have purchased banquet tickets will proceed to the adjacent ballroom for an elegant dinner and live entertainment.

He has presented at TMS Annual Meetings and short courses, served as key reader for and published in Metallurgical and Materials Transactions journals, and co-chaired many technical sessions.

David H. DeYoung is the director, GPP Business Technology, for Alcoa. A TMS member since 1981, he has served as Light Metals Division vice chair and has served TMS in an array of volunteer leadership positions, including chair of both the Aluminum Committee (2008-2009) and the Process Technology and Modeling Committee (1998-2000). He is also a member of the Aluminum Processing Committee, Energy Committee, Nominating Committee, and the Brimacombe Medalist, Robert Lansing Hardy Award, and Early Career Faculty Fellow Award subcommittees.
