ACerS, AIST, ASM, TMS issue call for papers for Materials Science & Technology 2008
(Nanowerk News) A call for abstracts has been issued for Materials Science & Technology (MS&T ’08), the leading forum addressing structure, properties, processing and performance throughout the global materials community.
Organized by four leading societies – American Ceramic Society (ACerS), Association for Iron and Steel Technology (AIST), ASM International (ASM), and The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) – MS&T ’08 will be held Oct. 5-9 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh.
Every year, MS&T brings together 3,500 materials scientists, engineers, students, suppliers and others from around the world to learn about research and applications that are shaping the future of materials science and technology.
MS&T ’08 will address eight dynamic and diverse themes: electronic and magnetic materials, environmental and energy issues, fundamentals and characterization, iron and steel, materials and systems, nanotechnology, processing and product manufacturing, and special topics.
The technical program is organized by the MS&T ’08 Program Coordinating Committee, which is comprised of representatives from the partnering organizations that make this comprehensive forum possible: ACerS, AIST, ASM, and TMS. Program chair is Matthew Merwin, U.S. Steel Research and Technology Center. Committee members are Thomas Lienert, Los Alamos National Laboratory; Brian Nelson, Dofasco Inc.; Dwight Viehland, Virginia Tech University; and Richard Wright, Idaho National Laboratory.
150-word abstract submissions will be accepted online through March 17 at www.matscitech.org. For more information about the abstract submission process, contact Marilyn Stoltz at ACerS, [email protected] or tel. (614) 794-5868.
