A Message from the LMD Chair


Welcome to the Light Metals Division (LMD) of TMS! 

The LMD is composed of four technical committees: Aluminum Committee, Energy Committee, Magnesium Committee, and Recycling & Environmental Technologies Committee. Via these committees, we schedule and organize symposia covering all aspects of light metals along the process chain, from fundamental sciences to industrial applications. With our work, we seek to reach our members and customers in industry, academia, and R&D laboratories from all over the world. As TMS is going global, LMD is increasingly active in organizing and supporting international forums in light metals technology and education.

The committees of the Light Metals Division are only as strong and as active as the members who participate in them. We are constantly looking for new members to help us in the many ways needed to run a member-driven organization such as TMS. I invite you to join one of our committees and to help us in the development of an attractive professional service for the light metals community. I also encourage you to contact me personally if you have any suggestions/comments about LMD activities.

Alan Luo, LMD Chair, 2016-2019
