Five materials societies including The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS), Japan Association of Powder and Powder Metallurgy (JSPM), Titanium Industry Development Association (TiDA), New Zealand, Chinese Society of Metals (CSM), and Materials Australia (MA) are co-sponsoring an international conference on “Powder Processing, Consolidation and Metallurgy of Titanium”.
The event will take place from 5-7 December 2011, in Brisbane, Australia and promises to be one of the most important conferences on PM titanium in recent years. The objectives of the conference are to provide an international forum to review recent progress in both the fundamental sciences and the applications of PM Titanium, as well as to discuss future directions.
The scope of the conference includes Ti powder production and processing; Ti powder consolidation by various processes; PM Ti alloy development; Ti injection moulding; additive manufacturing from Ti powder by, for example, cold spray, electron beam or laser melting; Phase transformation phenomena in Ti alloys during heating, isothermal holding and cooling; and PM Ti applications.
The deadline for abstract submissions is 30 September 2011. For more information visit the event website.
