Edward Herderick Named JOM Industrial Editor 

The TMS member journal, JOM, has added a new member to its editorial team. This month, Edward D. Herderick, Director of Additive Manufacturing at The Ohio State University Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence, joins JOM in the new position of Industrial Editor. In this role, Herderick is charged with improving outreach to potential industry authors and helping expand the journal’s coverage of industry-relevant topics.

“I love the mix of industry, academia, and national labs represented in TMS’s membership,” said Herderick. “I’d like to help industrial folks engage academics and vice versa. These two groups often want to work together, but they don’t always know how.”

Herderick’s background makes him an ideal candidate for this task. In the past, he has served as a JOM advisor and as a member of the TMS Board of Directors. Prior to working at Ohio State, Herderick spent his career in industry at companies such as GE, RP+M, and the Edison Welding Institute. 

“I have a wide industrial network,” said Herderick. “And I’ll bring my network to this position.”

Herderick will work with special topic advisors to increase industrial representation in the journal, helping them to provide an appropriate level of industrial perspective and to frame their topics in a way that appeals to the broad JOM readership, including industry. He’ll also help to recruit industrial contributors to write relevant reviews and research articles on topics of interest.

“When I served on the TMS Board of Directors, I was a vocal advocate for increased industrial engagement,” said Herderick. “Now I’m happy to contribute to that goal as the JOM Industrial Editor.”

Additive Manufacturing Benchmarks Conference Set for June 2018 

TMS is collaborating with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), and the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) to present Additive Manufacturing Benchmarks 2018 (AM-Bench 2018), June 18–21, 2018, at NIST Headquarters in Gaithersburg, Maryland. 

This will be the first in a series of events focused on validating and improving the accuracy of model predictions and developing universally accepted quantitative measurement approaches for all additive manufacturing (AM) materials and methods.

“This continuing series of additive manufacturing benchmark tests provides a common set of challenges that simulation companies, end users, and machine manufacturers can use to advance and refine the technology,” said AM-Bench 2018 organizers Lyle Levine and Mark Stoudt. Both Levine and Stoudt are with NIST, and Stoudt is also vice chair of the TMS Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division. “Since TMS is the leading materials professional society in additive manufacturing, we are thrilled to partner with them to open this important conference series to as wide an audience as possible.”

AM researchers, practitioners, end-users, modelers, and vendors are invited to contribute to this new event in three ways:

1.  Present your work as part of the Benchmark Measurement and Modeling Symposium that examines quantitative measurements, state-of-the-art models, end user modeling needs, and future directions. Symposium abstracts will be accepted through March 1, 2018.

2.  Participate in the AM-Bench 2018 benchmark challenges to be announced in February 2018.
3.  Attend AM-Bench 2018 in June to learn about the current state-of-the-art measurements and models, provide input into future benchmark tests, and network with your customers and AM experts.

For more information on this new event, visit the AM-Bench 2018 website.

Deadline Extended for Extraction 2018 

The deadline to submit an abstract for Extraction 2018 has been extended to November 30. This will be the final day to submit your work for the industry’s first collaborative global metallurgy conference focused exclusively on extractive topics.

The conference—organized jointly by The Metallurgy and Materials Society (MetSoc) of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM); the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME); and TMS—is the home for Hydrometallurgy 2018 and 7th International Symposium on Sulfide Smelting, as well as new programming tracks. More details on programming plans can be found on the Extraction 2018 Technical Themes and Symposia web page.

Housing reservations are now being accepted for Extraction 2018. You can book your hotel room today at the Westin Ottawa—the conference location—at the special conference attendee rate.

The meeting is also currently accepting exhibit reservations. If you want to display your products or services at Extraction 2018, please reserve your booth as soon as possible. Only 50 booth spaces are available for this event.

Make your plans now and join us August 26–29 in Ottawa, Canada, for Extraction 2018.
