Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the use of stainless steel, the Historical Metallurgy Society will be hosting a two day conference in the Cuttler's Hall, Sheffield on the 19th and 20th of October 2013.

It was one hundred years ago that local metallurgist Harry Brearly made his first arc furnace to produce stainless steel in Sheffield. To honour him and his achievements, the Society's 2013 Annual Meeting conference will cover all aspects of stainless steel, modern industrial processes, or other modern alloys. The first day will be devoted to paper presentations in Sheffield's historic Cuttler's Hall, while the second day will see delegates visit a number of historic sites.

Papers on stainless steel, modern alloys, or relevant related topics are welcome to be submitted to the conference organisers by the 27th of April 2013. Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words, include the name and affiliation of all authors and indicate the presenting author in bold letters.

For more information or to submit an abstract please contact HMSannualconf@hist-met.org or post to Eleanor Blakelock, Conservation and Scientific Research, British Museum, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG, UK. Alternatively, please visit the Historical Metallurgy Society's website. Registrations forms will be made available shortly.
