Included with MS&T registration, the TMS Fall Meeting features 28 symposia organized by TMS technical committees, a learning and networking event for early-career professionals, workshops to help develop technical and professional skills, and more.  

Some highlights of the TMS Fall Meeting at MS&T22 will include:

  • TMS Plenary Speaker: Iver Anderson, Iowa State University and Ames Laboratory, will deliver the lecture, “Materials Research on Clean Energy: For the Sake of our Grandchildren,” at the MS&T22 All-Conference Plenary session on Tuesday, October 11.
  • Honorary Symposium: Carolyn M. Hansson, University of Waterloo, will be honored at the symposium, Resisting Degradation from the Environment, which will recognize her research and pioneering experiences as a woman in STEM.
  • Improve Your Networking Skills Workshop: This new, hour-long professional development event will teach participants practical approaches to networking.
  • Additive Manufacturing Materials and Processes Workshop: MS&T attendees can sign up for this Sunday-afternoon workshop that will familiarize participants with current additive manufacturing (AM) processes; current AM practice for metals, polymers, and ceramics; modeling of AM processes, microstructural evolution, and service properties; and current challenges and research opportunities.
  • TMS Emerging Professionals Luncheon: Early-career professionals are invited to join their TMS colleagues to hear from invited speaker Joy Gockel, Colorado School of Mines, and to network with other attendees at this luncheon event. Tickets for the lunch can be purchased through the registration form, but there is no cost to attend the lecture.
