MS&T’13® Finishes Strong in a Year of "Firsts"

Lynne Robinson 0 1 0 of the Metallurgy and Materials Society (MetSoc) of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum (CIM). MetSoc joined the MS&T partner societies-The American Ceramic Society (ACerS), the Association for Iron and Steel Technology (AIST), ASM International, and TMS-and their programming partner NACE, in organizing MS&T's most robust program to date. More than 1,900 presentations-an all-time high for the meeting-were given within 315 sessions over the course of the event. Hani Henein, Professor, University of Alberta, and TMS Vice President, was pleased with the outcomes of MS&T'13 on a number of levels. As the vice president of TMS, a past president of MetSoc of CIM, and a Canadian resident, the great success of this year's MS&T 1 CIM Fellowship Vladimiros Papangelakis, University of Toronto Comondore (Ravi) Ravindran, Ryerson University The late fall Montral air was brisk, but the chill quickly wore off inside the Palais des congrs de Montral as a more than 3,400 minerals, metals, and materials professionals convened for Materials Science & Technology 2013 (MS&T'13), from October 27 to 31. In addition to setting a near-record attendance, MS&T'13 MS&T'13 drew more than 3,400 attendees who benefitted from one of the richest technical programs in the meeting's history, as well as a full slate of networking opportunities. - in Montral was extremely gratifying, he said. Naturally, our traditional MS&T partners of TMS, ASM, ACerS, and AIST all worked wonderfully effectively together as always. But, with 2013 having a new host country in Canada and a new partner in MetSoc, it was remarkable to see these elements added seamlessly and collaboratively in all of the best ways . . . in much the same way that Montral so charmingly blends English- and French-speaking cultures. It was certainly a grand experimentand a grand outcomefor all of us who participated. MS&T will return to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for 2014, More than 120 companies participated in the MS&T13 Exhibition. taking place October 12 to 16 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. Planned technical topics include a focus on materials processing and manufacturing, as well as materials-environment interactions and accepted until March 15. For additional information on the MS&T14 technical program, as well as abstract submission instructions, visit the website at www Opening Plenary Goes to Extremes Previewing many of the topics that would be discussed throughout MS&T13 was the opening plenary session, Advanced Materials and Manufacturing for Extreme Environments. The session took off with a presentation from Kevin G. Bowcutt, Senior Technical Fellow and Chief Scientist of Hypersonics, The Boeing Company, on what mach 5 and beyond. After an overview of the unique requirements of hypersonic vehicles, Bowcutt traced the development of the X-51 unmanned scramjet demonstration aircraft through deal has been learned from the X-51, as well as other experiments conducted by the Hypersonic International Flight Research and Experimentation (HIFiRE) program, Bowcutt noted a key factor in the long-term feasibility of hypersonic travel is the development of materials that can withstand the extraordinary technical challenges inherent have the potential to provide new military and commercial aerospace capabilities that could change the world, he to pursuing exploration at a level that was never before possible. Kevin G. Bowcutt (inset) launched the MS&T13 plenary session with his overview of recent developments in hypersonic flight. John Sarrao, Associate Director for Theory, Simulation, and Computation (AD-TSC), Los Alamos National Laboratory, then explored another frontier of science that could yield the materials required for the extreme next-generation applications. His talk, The Co-Design of Experiment and Theory at the Mesoscale: A MaRIE Perspective, offered a detailed overview of the vision for the Matter-Radiation Interactions in Extremes (MaRIE) international user facility. Offering highenergy, high-repetition-rate, coherent x-ray capabilities, More than 1,300 MS&T'13 attendees listened as John Sarrao (inset) discusssed the vision for the potential impact of the MaRIE international user facility. along with charged-particle imaging, MaRIE will enable unprecedented in-situ, transient measurements of real mesoscale materials in relevant extremes, especially dynamic loading and irradiation extremes. These tools could enable scientists to develop materials that can perform predictably for currently unattainable lifetimes in the most punishing of environments. Beyond utilizing MaRIEs technological resources, Sarrao stressed that it is important how we do our workhow we get the science become more sophisticated as a community in bridging synthesis, characterization, and theory. Tresa M. Pollock, Alcoa Professor, University of California, Santa Barbara, concluded the plenary with a review of recent work in developing new materials for aircraft turbine engines. She also touched on analogous materials issues for rocket propulsion systems and nextgeneration power plants. Materials are the primary enablers in a broad array of extreme environment systems, she noted in her closing remarks. Integrating models, experiments, and advanced characterization tools can lead to new and sometimes Tresa M. Pollock highlighted unexpected materials successes, as well as lessons solutions. However, if learned, in the development of we can achieve much new materials for turbine engines. greater integration of computational and experimental tools, as well as digital data, across the spectrum, and link that with design and manufacturing, we will have a profound impact. Distinguished Lecture Symposium Flies High (Left to Right) Gernant E. Maurer, 2012 2013 ASM International President, formally recognizes Tresa Pollock as the 2013 TMS/ ASM Distinguished Lecturer, along with Elizabeth Holm, 2013 TMS President. Bowcutt, The Boeing Company, then fast-forwarded into the future with his presentation on the challenges posed by the highly integrated systems required for hypersonic was James Cotton, The Boeing Company, who discussed how developing new aircraft materials has evolved from waiting for suppliers to bring the materials that we need, to telling the suppliers our requirements and timing before they invent them. Katherine Stevens, GE Aviation, took for gas turbine engines, while also presenting a systems engineering development approach to meet these challenges effectively. MS&T13 Proceedings Now Available Another record broken at MS&T13 was the number of total proceedings manuscripts published470 in total. MS&T13 attendees received a CD copy of this valuable resource as part of their registration, but it is also available for purchase at TMS members are eligible to receive a 35 percent discount on this proceedings publication, as well Member Reading Room section of the TMS Members Only website to acquire the discount code. systems. Ron Kerans followed, taking a few steps back in time with a comprehensive analysis of how employed concepts of integrated Students Are Big Winners at MS&T2013 More than 700 students participated in the career development workshops, networking activities, and awards programs developed just for them at MS&T13. TMS extends a special congratulations to the two International Symposium on Superalloys Scholarship with their awards at MS&T13. Said Timothy Montalbano, University of California, Being a Material Advantage member has made it possible for my research to be recognized by a prestigious audience that would have otherwise been will only be enhanced by receiving this scholarship. It has validated the importance of my dissertation topichot corrosion studies of turbine, hot-section materials. David James Crudden, University of provided by this award allows me to remain focused on my research. David James Crudden This has also encouraged me to continue pursuing a career motivated to advance superalloy technology. The scholarships are funded annually by the Organizing Committee of the International Symposium on Superalloys. Making TMS Member Connections Members had a chance to take a break, get their questions answered, and play a round or two of Plinko: The Periodic Table of Elements Edition, at the MS&T13 TMS Member Lounge. TMS is pleased to welcome the 243 new TMS members who opted in for membership via their MS&T13 registrations. TMS Members Honored at MS&T13 Congratulations to the many TMS members who were recognized for their professional excellence and contributions by ACerS, ASM International, and MetSoc at the annual awards programs of these societies held during MS&T13.
