||Recent advances in alloy design methods and microstructural development during processing have produced metals that demonstrate previously unattainable combinations of properties. Many of these new alloys also exhibit novel temperature and strain path-dependent behavior. The main objective of this symposium is to provide a scientific forum that highlights the numerous advances in characterization, experiments, and computation that improve our knowledge of mechanical and metallurgical responses of advanced metallic alloys relevant to manufacturing. This includes increasing our understanding of the relationships between complex microstructures and thermal-deformation paths with mechanical response, formability, and failure. Abstracts are requested in the following general topic areas: mechanical property measurement methods; characterization of phase transformations, deformation mechanisms, texture, etc.; deformation simulations, including in-situ studies; advanced manufacturing processes; integration of science and manufacturing; and the development of accurate constitutive relationships.
