The fruitful discussions on different aspects and ways to collaborate lead to the first a direct measure. TMS will be involved in the MSE2018 congress and send an exhibit booth. Moreover, a joined symposium on Light Weight Metals will be part of the call for abstracts of the MSE2018 within the topic S – Structural Materials. The symposium organizers Jürgen Hirsch (DGM member of the board, consultant to Hydro Aluminium Rolled Products GmbH) and David DeYoung (current TMS president, Director of R&D, Breakthrough Technology, Alcoa) invite materials scientists and engineers to propose abstracts covering the design and tailoring of monolithic and of composite cast and wrought metals and alloys, as well as the manufacturing of semi-finished and finished products with such processes as DC casting, rolling, extrusion, sheet-metal forming and joining, shape casting, powder metallurgy, and up to and including technologies for their recycling and reuse.
In return, DGM will help TMS to organize a similarly themed Light Weight Metal Symposium during TMS2019.
