MS&T20 Opens for Registration

Registration is now open for the multidisciplinary Materials Science & Technology 2020 (MS&T20) conference, planned for October 4-8, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Bringing together the resources of three leading materials-related societies (the American Ceramic Society, the Association for Iron & Steel Technology, and TMS), MS&T is a one-stop event for the materials community. MS&T20 will feature the TMS Fall Meeting, which includes a collection of symposia exploring the intersections of development, synthesis, and application in interest areas that are related to TMS and its members. Learn more about the TMS Fall Meeting at MS&T20.

Here’s how you can prepare now for MS&T20:

  • Register Today: Register by September 3 for the best rate on conference attendance. 
  • Book a Hotel: Stay at the Omni William Penn Hotel, which will serve as the headquarters hotel for TMS, or one of several other local hotels where discounted room rates are available for attendees.
  • Submit a Late News Abstract: You can still be part of the MS&T20 technical program by participating in the Late News poster session. Submit your abstract by August 31 to participate. 
Please note, the abstract submission deadline occurred on May 31. Symposium organizers are in the process of reviewing abstract submissions and building the sessions. This process should be completed shortly. The preliminary technical program will be available online in mid-July. 

Make your plans now to participate this fall in the meeting that brings together the resources of three leading materials-related societies at the place where materials innovation happens.

ICME 2021 Now Accepting Abstracts

The call for abstracts is now open for the 6th World Congress on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME 2021). Share your work at Lake Tahoe, Nevada, for this influential event, April 18–22, 2021. Submit your abstract by September 11, 2020.

ICME 2021 is the recognized hub of interaction among software developers and process engineers along the entire production chain, as well as for materials scientists and engineers developing new materials. This congress will convene leading researchers and practitioners to share the latest knowledge and advances in the discipline.

Make critical contacts, gain exposure, and advance your work by being part of the technical program. Submit an abstract now for the opportunity to join colleagues at Lake Tahoe in 2021. The organizing committee welcomes submissions on many ICME-related topics, including:
  • Applications: Advanced Manufacturing – Additive Manufacturing
  • Applications: Advanced Manufacturing – Other
  • Applications: Materials Design & Alloy Modification
  • Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
  • ICME for Non-Metals, Structural Composites, and Ceramics
  • ICME in Education
  • ICME-Based Design Tools
  • Industrial Integration & Success Stories
  • Linkage: Process – Microstructure
  • Linkage: Structure – Properties
  • Material Databases & Platforms
  • Materials Qualification
  • Microstructure Evolution and Analysis
  • Multi-Scale Modeling
  • Uncertainty Quantification, Verification & Validation
The TMS journal Integrating Materials and Manufacturing Innovation will be publishing a topical collection dedicated to the ICME 2021 meeting. Only submissions from ICME 2021 will be considered.

Read Outstanding Papers from TMS Journals

TMS offers a number of resources that can help our community keep up with current research, including six journals published by TMS. Each month, a limited number of Editor’s Choice articles from these TMS journals are selected and made available to the public at no charge. (TMS members can access the full content of all of these journals by logging in to the Journals section of the TMS website at any time.)

This distinct honor is awarded to fewer than 5% of papers published in the respective journals each year.

In addition to high-quality writing, these notable articles are distinguished by attributes such as outstanding science, innovative methods, impactful outputs, historical significance, and/or broad interest to the readership.
