2018 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Advanced Real Time Optical Imaging: Organized by Jinichiro Nakano; David Alman; Il Sohn; Hiroyuki Shibata; Antoine Allanore

Real time observations can provide important information needed to understand materials behavior, as these techniques can provide valuable insights on mechanisms free from artifacts induced from conventional experimental techniques. Emerging optical imaging techniques are comparatively inexpensive methods that allow such observations. Methods, such as confocal laser microscopy, can be enhanced with capabilities that enable heating and cooling, controlled atmospheres, and application of stresses; and can be used to generate real time thermodynamic and kinetic data needed to study a variety of materials and processes, such as phase transformation, oxidation, corrosion, etc. In-vivo fluorescence methods can be used to provide essential information on the behavior of biomaterials. This symposium intends to encompass a broad range of materials science topics to enable and promote cross-cutting opportunities for multiple disciplines (biomaterials, energy materials, functional materials, structural materials, etc.). Papers are solicited on technique development, as well as, on the application of these methods to materials science and engineering. Topics include, but not limited to: - In-situ, in-operando, in-vitro, and in-vivo observation techniques, such as confocal laser microscopes, thermal imaging furnace, and other optical techniques. - Confocal techniques, including fluorescence and reflection types, which may be equipped with capabilities such as heating/cooling chambers, gas chambers, mechanical testing, Raman spectroscope, and FTIR. - Other optical microscopic or telescopic methods include hot thermocouple, resistance heating, and sessile drop techniques used for high temperature phenomena. - Thermodynamic and kinetic data from these techniques, useful for phase diagram constructions, oxidation/corrosion modeling, phase formation kinetics studies, etc. - Findings of studies on interrogation of materials by these techniques.

2018 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Biological Materials Science: Organized by Steven Naleway; Vinoy Thomas; Holly Martin; Jing Du

The interaction of materials and biological systems is a rapidly growing, interdisciplinary frontier in materials science and engineering with boundless possibilities. Biological materials science involves the application of materials science and engineering principles to the study of biological materials, including the design, synthesis and fabrication of materials systems from biological lessons. The Symposium on Biological Materials Science emphasizes the primacy of biological materials to the development of biomaterials and biomimetic materials. Biological materials comprise the inorganic and organic constituents of biological systems, whereas biomaterials are synthetic materials developed to replace, restore or augment biological materials. The structure and properties of biological materials exhibit a breadth and complexity unmatched in current biomaterials. Biological materials are formed under ambient conditions by living and adaptive biological systems for multifunctional performance. The structure and properties of biological materials are typically hierarchical, inhomogeneous and anisotropic. Therefore, biological materials exhibit complex structure-property relationships which are only beginning to be elucidated. Biomimetic materials (or bioinspired materials) have unique, tailored structure and properties designed based upon the study of structureproperty relationships in biological materials. Biomimetic materials most often utilize creative new methods of synthesis/processing and microstructure design in order to achieve the desired functionality. The symposium will encompass the following themes: - Biological and natural materials (hard and soft tissues) - Biomaterials (implants and devices) - Biomimetic and bioinspired materials - Bioenabled materials and systems - Biorelated applications In addition, two poster sessions are proposed: - Biological Materials Science Poster Session - Biological Materials Science Student Poster Contest (Please select "Student Poster" as your abstract type to be considered for this session.)

Biology remains an inspiration for advanced materials design for a wide range of applications. The study of the interaction of engineered materials and biological systems is a rapidly growing, interdisciplinary frontier in materials science and engineering with considerable possibilities. Biological Materials Science involves the application of materials science and engineering principles to the study of biological materials, including the design, synthesis and fabrication of materials systems with lessons from biology. The Symposium on Biological Materials Science will focus on advances in biological materials towards the development of biomaterials and biomimetic materials. Biological materials comprise of the inorganic and organic constituents of biological systems, whereas biomaterials are synthetic materials developed to replace, restore or augment the functionality of biological materials. Hierarchical structure coupled with built-in redundancy is ubiquitous in biological materials which is responsible for their unique properties, including the ability to heal. Biological materials are formed under ambient conditions by living and adaptive biological systems for multifunctional performance. Characterizing and modeling responses of these materials are highly challenging due to their complex hierarchical structures, anisotropy and inherent inhomogeneity. Biomimetic materials (or bio-inspired materials) are tailored to replicate the desired structure and properties of biological materials based upon the study of their structure-property relationships. Biomimetic materials often require creative and novel methods of synthesis/processing and microstructural design in order to achieve the desired functionality. The symposium will encompass the following themes: o Biological materials (soft and hard tissues, cells, etc.) o Biomaterials (implants, tissue engineered structures and devices) o Modeling and experimental evaluation of mechanical properties of biological and biomaterials. o Biomimetic and bio-inspired materials o Bio-enabled materials and systems o Bio-related applications Anticipated Average Number of Attendees per Paper: 50 Planned Proceedings: The organizers are planning on pursuing publication of proceedings in a journal.

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.
