Items of Note from the Field, Profession, and Society

For More Information Contact: TYPES OF PAPERS ACCEPTED BY JOM JOM contributors can select from a variety of approaches for articles that fall within the editorial calendar topics. These article approaches include, but are not limited to: Overview: 4-8 printed pages (3,200-6,400 words). A well-referenced and wellillustrated introduction to the issues affecting and recent developments occurring in a topical technology. The purpose is to thoroughly introduce the general reader Research Summary: 3-5 printed pages (2,400-4,000 words). These papers outline recent, technically in-depth investigations in materials science and technology. - Fresh off the news that its Impact cant boostrising to a 2011 IF of 1.421 from a 2010 IF of 1.170JOM ancessing for Performance (June); Electronic and Magnetic Materials (July); Sustainability (August); Modeling and Characterization (September); Recovery and Recycling (October); Materials and Processing (November); and Energy Materials (December). Each topic within these themes is sponsored by a TMS technical committee, with a JOM advisor or guest editor appointed from that committee to review submitted manuscripts. We are very pleased with the breadth of the technical topics that we will be offering this year, said Maureen Byko, JOM editor. JOM nitely be covering the waterfront of materials science and engineering and we look forward to seeing technical papers that will provide new perspectives on these issues. Byko also noted that the credit for the scope and quality of JOMs technical content goes to its editorial volunteers and experts. The editorial calendar represents the plans of many individual committees, she said. We absolutely could not publish this journal without their efforts and expertise. Authors should submit their manuscripts using Springers Editorial Manager system, which can be accessed at /jomj/. The current list of 2013 JOM topics is provided on the next page to help potential authors determine the idea for a new topic, contact Maureen Byko at . HELP SHAPE THE FUTURE OF JOM The foundationand strengthof JOM's technical content is built on the insights and expertise of TMS technical committee volunteers who ensure that the journal is covering the latest developments and issues in materials science and engineering. The most direct way to shape JOM's technical coverage in the future is to join one of these committees and seek an appointment as a JOM advisor. For additional information on TMS volunteer opportunities, visit Manuscripts Deadline: October 1, 2012 September 2013 (Titles in parentheses refer to TMS committees organizing the technical topics.)

Due to problems that greatly delayed the delivery of the print JOM for July, the societys normal process for presenting candidates for open positions on the TMS Board of Directors was not possible. To address this situation, all four candidates for the open board positions are presented here with a new timetable for member action. Consistent with the nomination model employed in July, any 25 members of the Society may submit, as a group, an additional nomination to the Board of Directors for one or more of the positions not later than November 15. If additional qualified nominations are not received by November 15, the 2012 TMS president shall declare the slate of nominees to be automatically elected. Hani Henein is a professor at the University of Alberta (UofA) and director of the universitys Advanced Materials and Processing Laboratory in Edmonton, Canada. The main thrust of his research is to develop new Hani Henein near-net shape processing routes. Henein earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees from McGill University and his doctorate from the University of British Columbia, and he is a registered professional engineer in the Province of Alberta. He holds one patent, has published 250 papers, edited nine books, and has received numerous professional awards and honors. Henein is currently a member of the TMS Financial Planning Committee, and has served as the TMS Board director of Programming (20092012). He has participated in numerous TMS committees over the past 30 years. Chair, Light Metals Division (LMD) David DeYoung is the director, GPP Business Technology, for Alcoa. A TMS member since 1981, he received his B.S. in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Michigan and his Ph.D. in Metallurgy from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. As the current LMD vice chair, DeYoung has served TMS in an array of volunteer leadership positions, including chair of both the Aluminum Committee (20082009) David DeYoung and the Process Technology and Modeling Committee (19982000). He is also a member of the Aluminum Processing and Energy Committees, the TMS Nominating Committee, and the Brimacombe Medalist, Robert Lansing Hardy Award, and Early Career Faculty Fellow Award Subcommittee. Chair, Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division (MPMD) James C. Foley has been a TMS member since 1987 and has been vice chair of the MPMD division since 2010. He has also served TMS in a number of other volunteer leadership capacities, including the TMS Board Jim Foley director of Pro gramming (20062009); chair of the Programming Coordinating Committee for the Materials Science & Technology 2006 (MS&T06) Conference & Exhibition; and member of the TMS Nominating Committee (20092012.)
