To submit news items for consideration, contact Lynne Robinson, JOM Contributing Editor, at . - Christopher Schuh, 2015 TMS Fellow (above), encouraged young professionals to ?avoid a tactical world view? when making career decisions when he spoke at the TMS Young Professional Tutorial Lecture. ?Think long range and holistically about where you are going,? Schuh said. ?Develop an internal set of standards and live up to them. If you strive to be the person you want to be, then everything else will follow.? Schuh is head of the Materials Science and Engineering Department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the youngest person to ever be inducted as a TMS Fellow. Nearly 2,000 presentations and a host of special events and networking opportunities drew more than more than 3,100 scientists and engineers to Materials Science & Technology 2015 (MS&T15) in Columbus, Ohio, October 4?8. A highlight of the meeting?s 13th installment was the all-conference plenary featuring award speakers from each of the organizing societies?the American Ceramic Society (ACerS), the Association for Iron and Steel Technology (AIST), ASM International, and TMS. (NACE International also participated as a programming partner.) Sylvia M. Johnson, NASA Ames Research Center and the ACerS Edward Orton Jr. Memorial Lecture honoree, opened the session with an engaging overview of how materials scientists and engineers are addressing the unique challenges of sending (and returning) Steel Lecture honoree, followed with a detailed discussion on martensitic transformations. Concluding the plenary was the TMS/ASM Joint Distinguished Lecture in Materials and Society, given by Vincent J. Russo, Aeronautical Systems Center, Wright Patterson Air Force Base (retired). The premise of his topic, ?What Is a Splendid Leader,? was that scientists and engineers possess the analytical and problem-solving positions, but frequently lack formal leadership training to round out these Getting ready to deliver a memorable allconference plenary session at MS&T15 are (left to right): Vincent J. Russo, the TMS/ ASM Joint Distinguished Lecturer; Sylvia M. Johnson, ACerS Edward Orton Jr. Memorial Lecturer; and Harry Bhadeshia, AIST Adolf Martens Memorial Steel Lecturer. Patrice Turchi, 2015 TMS president (forefront, left), welcomes attendees to the very popular Women in Materials Science and Engineering Reception, along with the leaders of the other MS&T15 organizing societies. (See sidebar for details.) ?I thought the plenary session was outstanding,? said Patrice Turchi, 2015 TMS president. ?It offered a great balance of perspectives. Sylvia Johnson?s presentation provided a highlevel discussion on how challenges are presented to and addressed by the technical talk. Vincent J. Russo then non-technical skills that scientists and engineers should cultivate, which I Superalloys Scholarship Awardees Recognized Congratulations to the two International Symposium on Superalloys Scholarship awardees, who were formally recognized for their achievements at MS&T15. Lindsay Mullenix is a doctoral student at the University of Florida in the High Temperature Alloys Group. Paraskevas Kontis is a doctoral student at the University of Oxford with a research interest in the development of new polycrystalline superalloys for novel guide vanes in land-based turbines. The scholarships are funded annually by the Organizing Committee of the International Symposium on Superalloys. Lindsay Mullenix Paraskevas Kontis James J. Robinson, TMS executive director (right), discusses what?s new and evolving at TMS at the TMS Members Lounge. Subtle scheduling changes at MS&T15 allowed even more opportunities for learning and networking at the MS&T15 Exhibition. think was of great value to everyone who attended the session.? Turchi was also pleased with the overall high quality of MS&T15 programming. ?I think there has been constant progress on what we are offering at MS&T, with well-attended sessions all the way through the end of the conference,? he said. ?The individual interests of the four organizing societies enable MS&T to cover an responsible for the programming have collaborated very well to develop Nearly a third of Standard & Poor?s (S&P) 500 companies are led by engineers as chief executive officers?a statistic that Vincent Russo uses to support his premise that engineers are uniquely equipped for leadership positions. ?Engineers naturally possess the key attributes necessary for running a successful company,? he stated in the opening minutes of the TMS/ ASM Joint Distinguished Lecture in Materials and Society at the MS&T15 all-conference plenary. ?They tend to be analytical problem solvers, system level thinkers, and have a practical, pragmatic orientation focused on building things that work.? At issue, noted Russo in his talk, is that engineers are rarely prepared to leverage these strengths into leadership skills. The optimum place to start this development, he said, is in undergraduate and graduate school, ?but the technical denseness of academic programs do not currently allow for this.? The balance of Russo?s presentation focused on sharing a leadership framework that he has developed based on his 41 years of experience in leading engineering organizations, most recently as executive topics that cross-cut all the disciplines represented at the meeting.? location in 2016?Salt Lake City, Utah, from October 24?27, 2016. Abstracts are being accepted until March 15, 2016 on such topics as additive manufacturing; biomaterials; electronic and magnetic materials; fundamentals, characterization, and computational modeling; nanomaterials; and processing and manufacturing.

The four pillars supporting this framework?Behavior Realities, Leadership Tenets, Essence of Leaders, and Life Balance?work together to evolve an understanding of how to motivate and inspire others to ?do something that needs to be done because they want to do it,? said Russo, paraphrasing former U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. ?Leaders are always role models, for the good, the bad, and the ugly,? commented Russo in his concluding remarks. ?You set the whole tone for the workforce and those you lead will reflect back everything you do. What you do is more important than what you say. Choose the shadow you cast carefully.? Distinguished Lecture Shares Framework for Leadership Development ?What Is a Splendid Leader? was the topic of Vincent J. Russo?s energetic TMS/ASM Joint Distinguished Lecture at the MS&T15 all-conference plenary. TMS Awards Update New TMS Award Honors Nagy El-Kaddah Nagy El-Kaddah Applications are now being accepted Division (EPD) Nagy El-Kaddah Award for Best Paper in Magnetohydrodynamics award honors Nagy El-Kaddah for the of transport phenomena and kinetics concerning the electromagnetic processing of materials. TMS member and one of El-Kaddah?s former graduate students, Thinium Natarajan, associate research consultant at U.S. Steel, worked to establish this award in his late professor?s memory. ?After obtaining my bachelor?s degree in India, El-Kaddah offered me an opportunity to get involved in materials his family welcomed me and helped me adjust to being away from family and in a recalled. ?On the professional side, he taking classes. My daily discussions with him gave me an appreciation of his ability to see the big picture and then hone in on the problem to be solved.? This award is open to members and manuscripts published at conferences such or journal manuscripts in the current year will be considered. The paper should be technical in nature, present new and application of science in solving a practical problem. The inaugural award recipient(s) will be recognized during the EPD/ Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division (MPMD) Joint Luncheon Lecture at the TMS 2017 Annual Meeting & El-Kaddah, a TMS member since 1979, his time as a professor at the University of Alabama?s College of Engineering, three patents on container-less melting processes that allow metals to melt while Prior to joining the university, El-Kaddah taught at Cairo University and worked as a visiting scientist and research associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. ?According to El-Kaddah, no detail was too small to be overlooked while trying to successfully complete different projects,?
