The TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition always features high-quality technical programming, but the real reason that attendees keep coming back year after year are the valuable interactions with their fellow members. See what previous attendees have to say about the meeting in their own words.
In Our Attendees’ Words
"I really enjoy meeting new collaborators, catching up with friends and colleagues, attending excellent programs and symposia, having wonderful hallway conversations, and exchanging crazy ideas scribbled on restaurant napkins."
- Fadi Abdeljawad, Assistant Professor
Department of Mechanical Engineering and
Department of Materials Science & Engineering, Clemson University
"TMS is a very meaningful conference for two types of people: 1) Full-fledged academicians trying to learn and solve for ‘Whys’ and 2) Industry people who have to create large workflows with known pieces of technology implemented in innovative ways, then can either replace or learn how to change portions of that workflow in alternative ways for their customers."
- Deepankar Pal, Ph.D., Senior Principal, Ansys Inc.
"For me, every TMS meeting is a fresh start to new interactions, a birth place for new collaborations, a check-in for multi-year partnerships and a reunion of sorts, where we celebrate the accomplishments of many and welcome others to the family."
- Jonathan Madison, 15-Year TMS
Annual Meeting Attendee
"One of the things I most enjoy about TMS is the networking opportunities at the annual and stand-alone meetings. Some of my favorite collaborations have come about from discussions at TMS annual during coffee breaks or over lunch/dinner chats."
