Focusing on physical metallurgy and materials, the TMS Fall Meeting 2001 will feature a wide array of technical symposia sponsored by The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS). The TMS 2001 Fall Meeting is being held with the ASM Materials Solutions Conference & Exhibit, the 21st ASM Heat Treating Society Conference & Show, and the TMS/SPE PAD Polymer Materials Conference.The TMS Fall Meeting draws visitors from around the world and is a must for anyone interested in the latest research and development in physical metallurgy and materials. The meeting features numerous technical symposia covering everything from metal-matrix composites, polymers, and computational thermodynamics, friction stir welding, solidifications, materials design, to alloy phases--just to name a few of the many topics discussed.

Even though access to information has widened with the development of the information superhighway— providing millions of sources readily available day and night—fast access to information does not always guarantee a high quality resource. This year, TMS invites you to attend the TMS Fall Meeting 2001 in Indianapolis and experience a different information superhighway that promises to be the high quality resource you can depend on. As you will discover, the TMS Fall Meeting 2001 will be your information superhighway with technical “tracks” of four conferences under one roof for just one full registration!
