Francis Froes Department Chair, Materials Science and Engineering, University of Idaho (retired), Director, Institute for Materials and Advanced Processes (IMAP) (retired). Francis H Froes, Ph.D. has been involved in the Titanium field with an emphasis on Powder Metallurgy (P/M) for more than 40 years. He was employed by a primary Titanium producer-Crucible Steel Company-where he was leader of the Titanium group. He was the program manager on a multi-million dollar US Air Force (USAF) contract on Titanium P/M. He then spent time at the USAF Materials Lab where he was supervisor of the Light Metals group (which included Titanium). This was followed by 17 years at the University of Idaho where he was a Director and Department Head of the Materials Science and Engineering Department. He has over 800 publications, in excess of 60 patents, and has edited almost 30 books-the majority on various aspects of Titanium again with an emphasis on P/M. He gave the key-note presentation at the first TDA (ITA) Conference. In recent years he has co-sponsored four TMS Symposia on Cost Effective Titanium featuring numerous papers on P/M. He is a Fellow of ASM, is a member of the Russian Academy of Science, and was awarded the Service to Powder Metallurgy by the Metal Powder Association. Recently he has been a co-author of three comprehensive papers on the Additive Manufacturing of Titanium. Ma Qian School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. Dr Ma Qian is a Distinguished Professor of the School of Engineering at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT University), Melbourne, Australia. His current research interests include metal additive manufacturing, powder metallurgy of light metals and alloys, solidification processing, metallic biomaterials, high entropy and medium entropy alloys, biomimetic design and lattice materials. He has published 225 peer-reviewed journal papers (nearly 100 papers on titanium), which have attracted more than 8200 Scopus citations as of November 2019 (>7300 excluding self-citations). He initiated the biennial international conference on Titanium Powder Metallurgy in 2011 (co-sponsored by Materials Australia, TiDA, TMS, JSPM and CSM) and served as the Organising Committee Chair and Conference Co-Chair for the Asia-Pacific International Conference on Additive Manufacturing (2017 and 2019). Currently, He serves as an editorial member for a number of journals, including as an Associate Editor for both Acta Materialia and Scripta Materialia. Mitsuo Niinomi Professor Emeritus of Tohoku University. Niinomi Research Group. Dr Mitsuo Niinomi received his PhD from Nagoya University in 1980. From 1980 to 2005, he was a research associate, Associate Professor, and Professor at Toyohashi University of Technology. In 2005, he moved to the Institute for Materials Research, Tohoku University as a Professor. In 2009 he then went on to serve as Director of the Institute for Materials Research, Tohoku University. In addition, he has been named an Honorary Professor at Tianjin University (China), Specially Appointed Professor at Osaka University and Meijo University, and Visiting Professor at Nagoya University since 2016. Since 2018 Dr. Niinomi has been an Honorary Professor at North Easter University (China). Dr. Niinomi is currently Professor Emeritus of Tohoku University and runs the Niinomi research group, which specializes in metallic biomaterials.
