A paper submission is required.

2018 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Magnesium Alloy Development: An LMD Symposium in Honor of Karl Kainer: Organized by Norbert Hort; Alan Luo

Magnesium alloys play a key role as lightweight materials for automotive, aerospace, 3C industries and even as a biodegradable material for medical implants. However, each of these areas of applications has its own requirements on the property profile. Therefore the alloys have to be designed according to the required property profile. This has to cover the influence of alloys e.g. on mechanical properties, corrosion behavior, deformability etc but also on processing steps. Additionally there is a need in prediction performance of alloys and to validate this with appropriate computational approaches. The scope of this symposium will be the description of magnesium alloy design from the selection of alloying elements, processing steps towards selected applications, the performance of alloys during service and how the get recycled. These real life approaches will be accompanied by modelling and simulation approaches to predict the microstructure and properties.

2017 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: In-situ Methods for Unraveling Structure-Property Relationships in Light Metals: Organized by Dmytro Orlov; Wim Sillekens

In light-metals technology, there is currently a sharp increase of interest in in-situ analysis, facilitated by the development and increasing accessibility of such techniques based on neutron and synchrotron radiation, electron microscopy, and acoustic emission. For instance, challenges in the analysis of magnesium are in the very high reactivity and well-known propensity to substantially alter structure upon unloading in mechanical testing, which makes it difficult to understand correlations between microstructures observed in post-mortem analysis and physical processes during testing. This may be effectively overcome by in-situ approaches. In a broader perspective, the applications of in-situ techniques span from the analysis of melts and liquid-solid transitions to thermo-mechanical processing and heat treatments to solid surface phenomena; i.e., phase transformations, interactions with various environments and (bio)-degradation. Therefore, such works are of significant interest to scientists working in the area of light-metals development as well as to a much broader audience from both academia and industry. The proposed symposium aims to bring together all interested parties for discussing recent achievements in this area and identifying interesting directions for further development.

2016 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Magnesium-based Biodegradable Implants: Organized by Wim Sillekens; Martyn Alderman; Patrick Bowen; Jaroslaw Drelich; Petra Maier

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 is especially promising in this respect due to its biochemical as well as to its mechanical attributes. Hence the research and development of magnesium-based biodegradable implants has seen a strongly growing interest over recent years from the scientific and industrial communities. The symposium addresses this emerging multi-disciplinary field as a joint effort of the Biomaterials and Magnesium Committees. Following its initial edition in 2013, the symposium aims to give a topical update on the state-of-affairs. Papers will be presented on all aspects relating to magnesium-based implants including (cardio)-vascular, orthopedic and other applications. This covers – but is not limited to �– alloy selection/development and their processing (including associated coating and surface modification), in-vitro/in-vivo performance assessment and evaluation, as well as product design and certification. Proceedings Plan: Participants will be required to submit a manuscript for inclusion in the Magnesium Technology 2016 proceedings volume. Authors of select manuscripts will be invited to submit their work to JOM.
