MPIF announces its 2017 Outstanding Technical Paper

November 1, 2017

The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has announced that the 2017 Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award has now been selected from presentations made at its POWDERMET2017 conference held in Las Vegas, USA, June 13-16, 2017. The winning paper, titled “Deformation Processed Al/Al2Ca Nano-filamentary Composite Conductors”, is by Charles Czahor, Trevor Riedemann, Alan Russell and Iver Anderson, FAPMI, Ames Laboratory, Iowa State University, USA.

The Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award (renamed in 2009), was established in 1993 to recognise authors of manuscripts for excellence in scientific and technical written communications from those papers presented and submitted for publication from the annual technical conference organised by the MPIF and APMI International. Its aim is to enhance the quality of technology transfer in PM literature by increasing the professional level of papers submitted for the annual technical conference and to enhance and promote the science and technology which is fundamental to Powder Metallurgy products, processes, and materials.

Paper excellence is measured using a system of four quality standards: (1) the paper is scientifically or technically new, innovative, or is a constructive review; (2) has clear presentation in writing, organisation, graphics, format and has professional integrity; (3) has clear industrial application; and (4) has long-term value.

The authors will be officially recognised during the Industry Luncheon to be held during POWDERMET2018 in San Antonio, USA, June 17–20, 2018.

The paper is available for download on the MPIF website. It is also included in Advances in Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials – 2017.
