Newswise — July 1, 2020 – Pittsburgh, PA (USA): Ten materials scientist and engineers have been honored by The American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers (AIME) and The Minerals, Metals Materials Society (TMS) through their selection as AIME-TMS Anniversary Keynote Speakers.
Each of the talks were initially presented at the TMS 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting Exhibition (TMS2021 Virtual). However, recordings of these talks are now available for free on the TMS website at www.tms.org/AnniversaryKeynotes in recognition of the contributions to the field made by both the presenters and the TMS technical divisions.
Only two TMS2021 Virtual talks were selected from each of TMS’s five technical divisions for this special designation as an AIME-TMS Anniversary Keynote. They were selected by members of TMS’s technical division councils using the following considerations:
TMS Extraction Processing Division
TMS Functional Materials Division
TMS Light Metals Division
TMS Materials Processing Manufacturing Division
TMS Structural Materials Division
The keynotes are a special highlight of the societies’ year-long celebration of their shared 150th anniversary which will continue through the TMS 2022 Annual Meeting Exhibition from February 27–March 3, 2022 in Anaheim, California, USA.
