2003 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Akira Yazawa Honorary Dinner

March 2–6 · 2003 TMS ANNUAL MEETING · San Diego, California

In conjunction with the Symposium: Yazawa International Symposium on Metallurgical and Materials Processing: Principles and Technologies

Monday, March 3, 2003
Location: San Diego Marriott Hotel & Marina, Marina Ballroom G
Time: 6:00 PM–9:30 PM

Sponsored by:
TMS Extraction & Processing Division, Aqueous Processing Committee, Copper, Nickel, Cobalt Committee, Process Fundamentals Committee, Lead and Zinc Committee, Pyrometallurgy Committee

This symposium is organized to share and discuss recent developments in physical chemistry of metallurgical processes and physicochemical principles involved in materials processing. These are the subjects of the lifetime work of Professor Akira Yazawa in whose honor this symposium is named. Many exciting new process technologies have in recent years been developed in the fields of chemical and process metallurgy and materials processing, and many have been adopted by the industry. The international symposium will provide a stimulating forum to critically examine the role of thermochemical and basic physicochemical principles in the development and operation of these new processes. The results of basic and applied research as well as those of plant operations will be covered in this symposium. The specific topics to be covered include but are not limited to thermodynamics of sulfide smelting, thermo and physico-chemical principles relevant to pyrometallurgical and hydrometallurgical plant operations, advances in nonferrous production technologies, thermochemistry of ferrous production, environmental topics related to metals and materials production, new reactor design, control and optimization methods, basic principles of advanced materials processing, advances in materials processing technologies, energy and new raw materials.

Tickets will NOT be sold at the door.
