Meeting 2022 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium Moving Forward from a Pandemic: How the Field of Materials Science Has Adapted (2022 Student-led Symposium)
Presentation Title When the World Went Remote: Adapting to Crisis and Creating Positive Change during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Author(s) Paul Mason
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Paul Mason
Abstract Scope Thermo-Calc Software is a small business developing software and databases for materials design and process optimization, with customers in almost seventy countries. This presentation highlights various ways in which the company responded and adapted to both our staff and our end-users working remotely during the pandemic. Examples will include: How we shifted to a work from home environment, spanning staff in Europe and North America, while maintaining a collaborative workforce, delivering on three major software releases, hiring new staff and supporting each other through the uncertainty. How we responded quickly to our customer needs, providing licenses so they could work at home to keep their programs going, providing live virtual training as well as developing a self-paced learning hub and also creating virtual networking opportunities through student-led webinars and supporting other on-line events. The lessons we have learned and the changes we anticipate in a post-pandemic world.
