SF2M: 70 years in the service of the Metallurgy and Materials
By Jean-Marc Chaix
The French Society of Metallurgy and Materials (SF2M), was created in 1945. Where are we 70 years later, in terms of scientific and technical knowledge on materials and processes, but also of expectations of the society? The day of the 70th anniversary of the SF2M, March 20th, 2015 was dedicated to these questionings, with conferences on materials of today, their design and manufacturing. A photography exhibition and a best micrograph competition were associated to this day.
