HOUSTON-The four partnering organizations of North America’s comprehensive forum for materials scientists and engineers, Materials Science & Technology (MS&T), have announced that NACE International will co-sponsor MS&T 2010, to be held in Houston next October 17 to 21, 2010.

MS&T offers a technical program addressing structure, properties, processing and performance across the materials community because it is organized by four materials societies: American Ceramic Society (ACerS), Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST), ASM International (ASM) and The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS).

The NACE co-sponsorship in 2010 will bring specific content on corrosion to the MS&T technical program, providing new perspectives and expertise to expand the MS&T experience. “We’re very pleased to participate as a co-sponsor of MS&T next year, not only to bring the progress made by NACE members to a wider materials audience, but to expose our membership to advances being made in other materials-related disciplines and processes,” says Tony Keane, NACE executive director.

“This special co-sponsorship of MS&T 2010 is highly relevant for us, as NACE is headquartered in Houston and corrosion solutions are of great importance to our four societies’ members and customers,” says Stanley C. Theobald, ASM managing director.
