International Alliance Lecture

Monday, 2 May · 8:45­9:30 a.m. · Wabash Ballroom

The 2011 Howe Memorial Lecture will be held on Monday, 2 May 2011 in the Wabash Ballroom inside the Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis, Ind. The Howe Memorial Lecture was established in 1923 to honor Henry Marion Howe. Dr. Howe helped turn steelmaking from an art into a science with his gift of observation and deduction. He reviewed the experiments and breakthroughs of others and added to D.K. Matlock them with investigations of his own to establish metallography. The lecturer is selected in recognition of outstanding individual contributions to the science and practice of iron and steel metallurgy or metallography. The 2011 lecturer is David K. Matlock, Armco Foundation Fogarty Professor, Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colo. His lecture is entitled, "Dual-Phase Steels: A Look Back With an Eye to Advanced High-Strength Sheet Steel Innovations."

The AIST International Alliance Lecture was established in 2008 to provide AISTech conference attendees with an improved awareness of global and regional steel industry developments. Each year, a representative from the various steel industry trade groups, institutes and professional societies located around the world will be invited to deliver this lecture.
