International friction stir event gathers momentum

Connect, no. 123, March/April 2003, p.7

The 4th symposium organised by TWI Ltd and Brigham Young University on behalf of the Friction Stir Welding Licensees Association is being held in Park City, Utah, USA on 14-16 May 2003 and looks set to be as great a success as its predecessors.

Response to the call for papers has been outstanding and as a result there will be over 50 orally presented papers plus poster presentations. Topics include process developments, applications, modelling, metallurgical studies, mechanical properties, corrosion, among others.

Attendance will be essential as the quality of the submissions ensures that this event will give the fullest coverage of recent technical advances, industrial take up and research. The symposium will attract a worldwide audience of delegates and will provide an excellent forum for networking with researchers, suppliers and process users.

The conference programme will be published in the Spring of 2003. Up-to-date details of the event are available. To register your interest and to receive more literature, contact Diana Fairmaner at TWI
