iTSSe | I t's not The Three Musketeers cry; it's the 2015 international thermal spray conference and exposition! this year, for the price of one registration fee, itsc attendees will gain access to technical programming for three conferences: itsc 2015, aeromat 2015, and an ims topi- cal event. the theme of aeromat 2015 is "s hape the future of your i ndustry," while ims focuses on the "microstructural char- acterization of aerospace materials and coatings." Between all three conferences, attendees will have access to more than 400 technical presentations. attendees will also learn about the latest research and development efforts in their specific field while gaining a global perspective from leading scientists and engineers from around the world. aeromat and itsc are working together to present a special joint symposium on advanced coatings for the aerospace industry. topics include thermal barrier coat- ings (tBcs); engineering, protection, and repair of aircraft structural parts; bond coat development for tBcs, engineer- ing tBcs and abradables, and much more. a special combined plenary session is also being planned on the expo show floor. the opening keynote session features dr. John grotzing- er, chief scientist and head of strategic science planning for nasa's $2.5 billion curiosity rover mission to mars. dr. grot- zinger is the lead scientist for curiosity's mission to explore the past climate and geology of mars. He will describe what the rover has discovered since landing on the red Planet, and how the mars science Laboratory onboard curiosity will continue the search for signs of extraterrestrial life. the show also features a special event on the historic Queen mary where attendees will have the opportunity to build business relationships and network with key contacts. crowds will gather on the show floor to learn the latest indus- try trends across the thermal spray, aerospace, and metallur- gy industries. new products and services will be discovered, while business relationships are built. on top of all of that, the show is taking place in beau- tiful Long Beach, california, may 11-14—a prime west coast EDITORIAL ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL!
