It is great honor for the IIM Trivandrum Chapter in association with Kalpakkam, Chennai, Trichy and Coimbatore Chapters of The Indian Institute of Metals to organize the 57th National Metallurgist's Day (NMD) and the 73rd Annual Technical Meeting (ATM) at Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala from November 13 to 16, 2019. NMD-ATM is an annual mega event of the IIM where metallurgists and materials scientists engineers from all over world, across the Industry-Academia & Research spectrum, participate to share their knowledge and findings. The Annual Technical Meeting to be held during November 15th–16th will include four broad areas (Ferrous, Non-ferrous, Metal Science and Environmental) and their sub-disciplines, spanning principles & methods, processing, manufacturing and applications. In addition, contemporary topics like Industry 4.0 will be deliberated with invited and contributory lectures, posters and metallographic display. An International Symposium on “Advanced Materials for Industrial and Societal Applications” will be held on November 13th, 2019 with Plenary and Keynote lectures and a Panel Discussion by eminent professionals.We, the Organizing Committee, cordially invite you to join us in Thiruvananthapuram for a learning, sharing and networking experience, in this beautiful land of God's Own Country.
The idea of formation of the Indian Institute of Metals (IIM) was conceived as early as in 1945. However, the Institute started its operations since 1946, and subsequently got registered in 1947. Since then, the Institute has seen phenomenal growth. Its activities include the whole gamut of Technology & Science applications in the areas of mineral beneficiation, extraction, fabrication, heat treatment, finishing of all ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys, ceramics, composites and other emerging materials. The activities of the Institute also encompass organization of national and international technical conferences and programs, conducting qualifying examinations, publications, etc. Starting with a modest membership of 42, the membership now stands at more than 10,000 drawn from various fields of metallurgical activities across 58 chapters. The Institute has grown into a prominent professional body and is now recognized throughout the world as one of the premier metallurgical organizations.
The international symposium will bring together experts from industry, R & D and academia to share their knowledge and experience, and projections for the future in the subject area. The day-long deliberations will have sessions relevant to the theme of the symposium. Some of the best-known experts in titanium, aluminum, composites, manufacturing, characterization, additive manufacturing, biomaterials, ceramics and composites, environmentally friendly materials, materials genome etc. from abroad and India will be delivering the Keynote and Invited lectures. A Panel Discussion with leaders from Industry, R & D labs and Academia is planned to be part of the symposium. Articles from the invited speakers will be published separately by Springer under IIM Book Series.
The National Metallurgists' Day Awards Scheme was instituted in 1962 by the Ministry of Steel & Mines, thGovernment of India. NMD is held every year on November 14, commemorating the birthday of legendary figure of Late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, our first prime minister and the architect of Modern India. Leading professionals are honored on this day for their outstanding contributions in metallurgical fields including operation, research, design, education, waste management, energy conservation and corporate leadership. The Annual Technical Meeting is a mega calendar event of the Institute where leading practioners and researchers across the entire metallurgy discipline, from India and abroad, participate and share their experiences. The first Annual Technical Meeting of the institute was held in Kolkata in 1947, followed by the National Metallurgists Awards Ceremony in Bhilai in 1963.
