Materials in Nuclear Waste Disposition by Raul B. Rebak
To complement JOM’s technical themes focused on computational materials, JOM: The Magazine offers two features providing perspective on how these concepts
are being implemented as part of the U.S. Materials Genome Initiative. The Materials Genome Initiative at the National Science Foundation (NSF): A Status
Report after the First Year of Funded Research by Kathleen Feldman and Sean R. Agnew provides an in-depth overview of milestones and lessons learned through
the NSF’s Designing Materials to Revolutionize and Engineer our Future (DMREF) program. Meredith Drosback, the former TMS Fellow in the White House Office of
Science and Technology Policy, likewise shares her observations in Materials Genome Initiative: Advances and Initiatives. Select JOM: The Magazine in the Current
Issue section of the JOM home page for a complete interactive listing of the features open to all readers this month.
The range of feature articles in this month’s JOM: The Magazine offer insights into what makes TMS the organization it is, as well as where it might be heading
in the future. A place to start is "Excellence and Inspiration: TMS Honors the Best of the Best," a succinct and informative overview of all the TMS members who
will be recognized at the TMS 2014 Annual Meeting and Exhibition. Alexander Scott, TMS Executive Director Emeritus, reflects on the late Keith Brimacombe’s
legacy to the TMS Foundation and shares how these principles are serving as the basis for the Foundation’s revitalization. Elizabeth Holm, 2013 TMS President,
also looks back on her presidential year, while touching on initiatives and priorities that TMS will be undertaking in coming months and years. To read
