There are a number of national societies in the Americas dedicated to metallurgical and materials engineering as well as mining and minerals technology in distinct countries. These societies pursue parallel efforts to attend industrial needs and promote training, technical education and scientific research. The Pan American Materials Conference achieved, for the first time, an integration of these leading societies in our continent. Its several 11 symposia permited interactions of prominent researchers in the most relevant themes and allow collaboration in R and D projects of common interest. The enthusiastic support of this concept by the two organizing societies, TMS The Metallurgical,Materials, and Minerals SocietyAIME and ABM Brazilian Society of Metallurgical, Materials, and Minerals coordination of with the talent and time donated by the organizer of each symposium assured the success of our ambitious event. As the leading society in Brazil, ABM welcomed the sister societies and acknowledged the presence of their representatives and all authors who contributed to the relevance of the Pan American Materials Conference. Over 200 talksposters were presented and support was provided for two classes of participants a young researchers that do not have sufficient support and b senior invited speakers that lend prestige to the event.
