Propose a Symposium for MS&T23

Help build a valuable technical program for your TMS colleagues at the Materials Science & Technology 2023 (MS&T23) technical meeting and exhibition. Propose a symposium today for MS&T23, which will take place October 1-5, 2023, in Columbus, Ohio.

Each year, MS&T brings together three leading materials-related societies in a single location, making it an ideal venue for presenting cross-disciplinary programming and exploring emerging topic areas. MS&T also serves as a complement to the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition, providing another opportunity for the broader TMS community to come together and build on topics introduced at Annual Meeting symposia.

TMS technical committees in the Functional Materials Division, Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division, and Structural Materials Division are especially encouraged to develop programming. All TMS-sponsored symposia will be part of the TMS Fall Meeting,  which explores the intersections of development, synthesis, and application.

Previous years’ meetings have included programming in a variety of technical areas from additive manufacturing and artificial intelligence to fundamentals and characterization and modeling. For a sample of previous years’ programming, view the MS&T22 technical program or the MS&T21 technical program

Join Us for June Webinars

In the first week of June, TMS is offering two new webinars: The Next Decade of the MGI, led by James A. Warren, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the roundtable discussion, Trends and Opportunities in Future Federally Funded Research 2. TMS members can register for both webinars for free; nonmembers can participate for a $50 registration fee.

June 1: The Next Decade of the MGI

The Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) recently released a new strategic plan with goals directed toward unifying the Materials Innovation Infrastructure, harnessing the power of materials data, and education and training initiatives critical to achieving the MGI’s national objectives. 

In this webinar, The Next Decade of the MGI, James A. Warren, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provides an overview of the 2021 MGI Strategic Plan and explores the challenges to be overcome in realizing this vision. Warren is director of the Materials Genome Program in the Material Measurement Laboratory at NIST. Since 2012, he has also served as the executive secretary of the National Science and Technology Council MGI Subcommittee.

This webinar will be held Wednesday, June 1, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to noon ET. You can register today for the live event or for on-demand access. 

June 2: Trends and Opportunities in Future Federally Funded Research 2

U.S. government agencies provide critical funding support for research and development (R&D) within materials science and engineering (MS&E) and manufacturing-related domains. In this webinar, a roundtable discussion will highlight some key opportunities and trends associated with federally funded R&D in these domains, including some opportunities in which interdisciplinary collaboration and activities are beneficial. A panel of program officers from three federal agencies has been assembled to offer insight and answer questions on how to attract financial awards and support for future initiatives.

Panelists include: Philseok Kim, program director, Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E), U.S. Department of Energy; Ming-Jen Pan, program officer, Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR); and Jennifer Wolk, Naval Materials S&T Division Director, Office of Naval Research. The discussion will be moderated by George Spanos, Director, New Initiatives, Science, and Engineering Department, TMS.

This is the second iteration of this webinar. Learn more about the panelists from the first TMS webinar on this topic and view the on-demand recording.

This webinar will be held Thursday, June 2, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to noon ET. You can register today for the live event or for on-demand access.
