RESCHEDULED: Computational Modeling of Materials, Minerals, and Metals

February 17–21 · 2002 TMS ANNUAL MEETING · Seattle, Washington

The originally planned technical program (~205 kb) is still available for archival purposes in portable document format and can be viewed using Adobe Acrobat. Caveat: The file may not ultimately represent the content of the rescheduled conference. The new program for the meeting will be a component of the technical program that can be viewed from the 2002 TMS Annual Meeting Home Page.

The full proceedings (book and CD) materials for the originally planned conference have been manufactured. The table of contents is available for on-line review, and the title can be purchased through the TMS Document Center.

For authors and preregistrants of the originally scheduled meeting who want to receive the proceedings book and CD-ROM, TMS can refund the amount of your registration fee, less the cost of the book and shipping. The proceedings price is being offered at the discounted meeting rate of $92/copy until September 30, 2001. Surface mail will be the method of delivery ($10 U.S. or $20 for all other destination countries). Allow six to eight weeks for delivery. Expedited service is available at an additional cost but will provide delivery in approximately two weeks (U.S. $15, Canada $25, Europe $60, Pacific (Japan/Australia/Korea) $65, Israel $70, India $90). TMS will refund the entire amount of your registration fee if you indicate that you do not wish to receive a copy of the proceedings at this time.

NOTIFICATION OF RESCHEDULE: Following the events of September 11, the 2001 TMS Fall Extraction and Process Metallurgy Meeting: Computational Modeling of Materials, Minerals, and Metals was postponed and is now rescheduled to be held as a symposium during the 2002 TMS Annual Meeting.

Consistent with what was originally planned for September 23-26, 2001, the objective of this international conference is to bring together all those who are involved in computational modeling of materials, minerals, and metals processing. Also involved are the engineers involved primarily in specific applications, developers of CM tools, and the developers of models. Their parameterization and validation, and particularly those involved in commissioning such work, so that they may understand where the state of the art is in this rapidly developing enabling technology at the beginning of the new millennium. Materials, metals, and minerals processing technologies are very complex and demand a fine balance of many competing mechanisms. The only really effective way to design, analyze and optimize these processes is through the development and exploitation of computational models. Such models have to reflect all the component physics and chemistry and their interactions--plus the engineering constraints with respect to materials and what can be implemented, etc. Increasingly computational modeling (CM) is the means by which all the factors that effect the operation of a process can be analyzed in a rational manner. Such models also represent the framework within which we can embed much of our understanding of process operations.

Notice to all individuals who pre-registered for the originally scheduled Computational Modeling of Materials, Minerals & Metals Processing Meeting: Along with your 2002 TMS Annual Meeting advance mailer, you will receive a letter extending a $50 discount off the registration fee for the inconvenience of rescheduling the conference. We appreciate your commitment to the sucess of the conference and we look forward to seeing you in Seattle.
