TMS Annual Meeting 2016

From February 14th to 18th, 2016 the annual meeting of The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS) took place in Nashville, Tennessee. Amongst more than 4000 participants from the industry and science, two young DGM´s who are at the moment in the USA promoted the MSE: Theresa Hanemann (Intern at Hydro Aluminium in Michigan) and Lukas Porz (Master student at the MIT). Next to 55 symposia from different topic areas, the TMS meeting included numerous committee meetings, networking events, poster evenings and a special program for students and doctoral candidates which is similar to the MSE Nachwuchsforum. We take with us many memories and proposals from the TMS Meeting and we hope to see our new friends again at the MSE 2016. We would like to thank the DGM for introducing us to the possibility of participating in the TMS annual meeting.

The TMS ( is next to the Materials Research Society (MRS) a partner of this year´s MSE which will be taking place in Darmstadt from September 27th to 29th
