Keynote Speakers Announced for Light Metals Session

Attracting and growing the next generation of technical talent will be the focus of the 2020 Light Metals Keynote Session, featuring five invited speakers from industry and academia. The keynote session will kick off light metals programming at 8:00 a.m. on February 24, at the TMS 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition (TMS2020) in San Diego, California.

Organized by Corleen Chesonis, Metal Quality Solutions LLC, the session will feature the following speakers and presentations:

“Feeding the Talent Pipeline: A New Zealand Perspective on Diversity in STEM”
Margaret Hyland, Vice Provost Research, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

“The Future of Light Metals Technology and Education: Opportunities and Challenges”
Alan A. Luo, The Ohio State University, USA

“Novelis’ Technical Career Path, a Structure to Create your Future”
Robert B. Wagstaff, Novelis Inc., USA

“The Norwegian Perspective”
Nina Dahl, SINTEF Industry, Norway

“Talent Acquisition and Development from a Hatch Perspective”
Joe H. Lombard, Hatch, Canada

The Light Metals keynote session is a popular recurring feature at the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition. You can now view presentations from the 2019 Light Metals Keynote Session, Aluminum Industry: Vision for the Next Decade, through the TMS2019 website.

Another popular light metals symposium, Magnesium Technology 2020, will hold a concurrent keynote session on Monday morning. Following these keynote sessions, TMS2020 will feature the following symposia, held throughout the week, as part of its Light Metals technical track:

Abstract Deadline Extended for 3DMS 2020

There are still a few days left to submit your work for the 5th International Congress on 3D Materials Science (3DMS 2020). The abstract deadline has been extended to Friday, November 22, giving you one last chance to contribute to this forum on three-dimensional materials science.

3DMS 2020 will be held June 28–July 1, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., USA. The congress will showcase presentations of current interest and significance to the three-dimensional characterization, visualization, quantitative analysis, modeling, and development of structure–property relationships of materials, as well as big data and machine learning issues associated with 3D materials science. The technical program will cover a range of topical areas representing the most critical and rapidly growing areas of 3D materials science.

Several plenary speakers have already been confirmed for this year’s conference, including:
  • Jaafar El-Awady, Johns Hopkins University
  • Satoshi Hata, Kyushu University
  • Helena Van Swygenhoven, Paul Scherrer Institute
Twelve invited speakers are confirmed, as well. Join these experts and a host of colleagues from around the world at 3DMS 2020. Submit your abstract by November 22 for the chance to share your work at this upcoming event. If your organization or employer would benefit from reaching others in the 3D materials science field, see the Sponsorship/Exhibition section of the website for details.
