Each year, TMS holds two large, multidisciplinary conferences (the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition and MS&T) and a series of more focused specialty conferences for the minerals, metals, and materials communities. Most of the technical programming at these events is delivered by volunteer presenters.
Present a Paper at a TMS Conference
Why Present a Paper?
The benefits to your career include the opportunity to:
- Share your research with peers
- Hone public speaking and presentation skills
- Network with colleagues in your interest area
In addition to preparation time, presenters are required to travel to a TMS meeting to deliver the presentation. Contributed presentations typically last approximately 20 minutes.
How to Get Started
To become a presenter at a TMS meeting, you should begin by selecting an upcoming event from the TMS Meetings Calendar
. Next, you should identify a relevant symposium in the conference technical program, submit an abstract online through ProgramMaster
, and prepare a presentation to deliver at the conference. Often, presenters are also asked to submit manuscripts based on their talks for inclusion in conference proceedings.
