||The TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition brings together more than 4,000 business leaders, engineers, scientists and other professionals in the materials field for an outstanding exchange of technical knowledge leading to solutions in the workplace and in society.
Symposium proposals for TMS2024 are now being accepted.
NEW! We are asking that symposium proposals be submitted by January 31, 2023. This new date is approximately two months earlier than the previous deadline and is intended to improve your organizing experience and better position the symposium you propose for success.
Here’s how the timing will work for TMS2024:
- Symposium proposals submitted by organizers via ProgramMaster by January 31, 2023
- Program Committee reviews proposals through February 28, 2023
- Feedback provided to symposium organizers by March 7, 2023
- Technical committee review and sponsorship at TMS2023 through March 23, 2023
- Call for abstracts will open by mid-April 2023
This change will allow the Program Committee to review proposal concepts early and to recommend collaborations and refinements to symposium titles and scopes before the proposals are approved by their respective technical committees. Our goals are to enable improved cross-division collaboration as well as identify and reduce overlap – two features that should increase presenter and attendee satisfaction as well as session attendance. By being aware of related symposia and planning accordingly, you will be able to ensure that your sessions have the highest-quality content and robust attendance.
We are confident that this change in process will increase collaboration and create an even stronger Annual Meeting program. We thank you in advance for your cooperation!
Note regarding the estimated number of sessions: The TMS2024 technical program is planned for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of the meeting week for a total of eight half-day sessions. The TMS Program Committee does not permit symposia to have parallel sessions. Organizers should plan either a single-session symposium or else a symposium with two, four, or eight sessions. Do not indicate more than eight sessions. Each symposium can add a poster session as well, but the poster session does not need to be indicated below.
