The favorable judgment of my peers is a reassurance of being on the right track as far as identifying and Carlos N. Tom pursuing research issues of relevance, dividual who has made long lasting contributions to the fundamental understanding of microstructure, properties and performance of structural materials. Here I would like to acknowledge that such contributions are not purely individual, and they would not have been possible without the synergy provided by a large and talented group of collaborators and post-docs, the the past nine years, and the unique mix of expertise and facilities provided by Los Alamos National Laboratory. TMS News and Information of Note Deadline Approaches for MS&T13 Abstract Submissions Don't miss the opportunity to present your scholarship at one of the leading forums in materials science and engineering. Abstracts are being accepted until March 15 for the 2013 Materials Science & Technology Conference and Exhibition (MS&T13). MS&T13 travels to to the Palais des congrs de Montral, Quebec, international meeting. Technical topics include biomaterials; ceramic and glass materials; electronic and magnetic materials; energy issues; fundamentals and characterization; iron and stele; materialsenvironment interactions; materials performance; nanomaterials; and processing and product manufacturing. MS&T13 will once more be organized by The American Ceramic Society, the Association for Iron and Steel Technology, ASM International, and TMS, with NACE International returning as a sponsor. The MS&T organizers are pleased to welcome the Metallurgy and Materials Society (MetSoc) of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum as their newest programming partner. MetSocs strong focus on extractive and processing metallurgy will not only expand the conferences technical programming, but also enrich the intersociety sessions and activities that have become an MS&T standard. For additional information on MS&T13. as well as abstract submission instructions, visit the conference website at TMS Welcomes New Members At its October 2012 meeting, the TMS Board of Directors approved a slate of new members representing an array of materials science and engineering disciplines. Please join us in congratulating the following individuals as they begin to explore the many personal and professional growth opportunities available to them as full members of TMS: SHOW HOW BEAUTIFUL MSE CAN BE The TMS Micrograph Display Project Demonstrate the artistic side of science by submitting your most beautiful micrographs to TMS for possible inclusion in an artwork display at TMS headquarters. The competition is open to TMS members only. Final selections for the display will be chosen based on their artistic merit. All submissions will be featured in the September 2013 issue of JOM. Visit the TMS website at www.tms .org for details on micrograph submission. The deadline for entries is April 25, 2013.
