Submit Late Abstracts for TMS2021

The TMS 2021 Annual Meeting & Exhibition (TMS2021) will accept late abstract submissions through September 8, 2020, offering one final opportunity to present your work at TMS2021 in March to an international audience of your peers.

Abstracts will be accepted in the topic areas covered by the 85 symposia to be held at the conference. Please make your submission through the “TMS2021: Late Abstract Submissions” section of ProgramMaster. You can access ProgramMaster and view symposia topics through the TMS2021 Technical Program web page. Note that any late abstracts submitted will not be eligible for publication in the 2021 proceedings.

Once you’ve submitted your abstract, you can begin your planning for TMS2021 by taking the following steps:
  • Book your room now at the Orlando World Center Marriott, which will be the location for all technical programming, exhibit, committee meetings, and networking and social functions for TMS2021. By staying at the Marriott, you can limit your interactions with individuals outside of the conference and eliminate the need for public transportation, resulting in a safer and healthier meeting experience.
  • For those who require a visa to travel to the conference, a visa invitation letter can be requested through the Travel Visas page of the TMS2021 website.
Visit the TMS2021 website regularly for additional updates on the meeting.

3DMS 2021 Reopens Call for Abstracts

The International Congress on 3D Materials Science (3DMS 2021) has reopened a call for abstracts, as a result of having to reschedule the 2020 meeting. Its milestone fifth iteration will convene June 29–July 2, 2021 in Washington, D.C.

The following technical topics, as well as other related topics, will be covered during this congress:
  • Methods for materials simulation and modelling
  • 3D Data processing and reconstruction algorithms
  • Process-microstructure-property relationships in 3D
  • Materials dynamics in 3D
  • New characterization methods
  • Machine learning
The abstract submission deadline is October 30, 2020, to be considered for the 2021 program. Participants whose abstracts were accepted previously in the first call will be included in the 2021 program and do not need to resubmit their work. If your work has been accepted, you are encouraged to visit the congress website to complete registration now.

Dorte Juul Jensen, a professor at the Technical University of Denmark, is the chair of the 3DMS 2021 organizing committee.

"For me, the 3DMS congress series is outstanding and a must to attend, as it is the cornerstone in building a new community within materials science. This community has grown significantly over the years, and it is enlightening that such a broad and cross-disciplinary 'team' has built up. Without the various skills, we would never have been able to move materials science to 3D," Juul Jensen said in the March issue of JOM

Applications are now being accepted by each of the five TMS technical divisions.

TMS Young Leaders International Scholar Award
Application Deadline: August 15, 2020
The Young Leaders International Scholar Program is a joint project operated by TMS, the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS), and the Japan Institute of Metals and Materials (JIM). This exchange program offers young TMS professional members the opportunity to present their work at international conferences. Selected scholars would travel to either the FEMS EUROMAT Conference in September 2021 or to a JIM annual meeting in the spring or fall of 2021.

TMS/ASM Joint Distinguished Lectureship in Materials and Society Award
Nomination Deadline: September 1, 2020
This award recognizes an individual experienced in a policy-making role in the field of materials engineering for the United States and its industries, an eminent individual with an overview of technology and society affected by the development in materials engineering. Recipients can be associated with government, industry, research, or education.

TMS Functional Materials Division Journal of Electronic Materials Best Paper Award
Nomination Deadline: October 15, 2020
This award recognizes outstanding contributions to the Journal of Electronic Materials (JEM). Anyone, including the editor or associate editors, may nominate a paper. Selection is made by the TMS Functional Materials Division Award Committee. Papers published in JEM from July 2019 through June 2020 are eligible for nomination for the 2021 award. Nominated papers should be based on the publication date, not the issue or online date. The lead author will receive a registration waiver to attend the TMS 2021 Annual Meeting & Exhibition to accept their award.
