Abstract Submissions

Professionals within science and engineering (particularly in the fields of minerals, metals and materials) working in industry, government, or academia are encouraged to submit abstracts that align with one of more of the key themes for DMMM3:

  • Engaging participants on the most current social-science findings while exploring existing issues and potential solutions.
  • Measuring progress in the areas of diversity and inclusion through effective metrics.
  • Transforming workplace cultures and policies to create an inclusive professional community.

Presentations may explore issues in specific underrepresented communities (e.g., gender identity and expression, race and ethnicity, LGBTQ+, and disability), challenges of intersectionality, or issues in creating an inclusive environment for all.

Abstracts must be submitted to ProgramMaster by Friday, March 2, 2017, to be considered for inclusion in the summit.

To assist the organizing committee in evaluating abstracts fairly, please be as clear and detailed in your abstract as possible. Abstracts should be 150 words.

If you have any questions regarding the abstract submission process, please contact the TMS Programming Staff.
