Mark your calendars for the Residual Stress Summit 2010, to be held on Sunday-Wednesday September 26-29, 2010 at Granlibakken Conference Center and Lodge, Tahoe City, California. The Summit will showcase invited talks from acknowledged experts, short updates, a poster session and equipment demonstrations.
The meeting follows the central objective of the Residual Stress Summit series, which is to bring together residual stress users, (who have "problems" and are in search of "solutions") and developers (who have "solutions" and are in search of "problems"). The format of the Summit is designed to facilitate technical interchange among practicing engineers and researchers, rather than as a venue for the presentation of specialized academic research.
The Residual Stress Summit 2010 follows the format of the successful Residual Stress Summits held in Los Alamos in 2003, Vancouver in 2005 and Oak Ridge in 2007. A coherent sequence of topics has been chosen focusing on practical needs and applications. Experts in these fields are being invited to speak and to share their knowledge and experience. To keep the focus of the meeting, all talks are by invitation only. If you have a proposal for a practical presentation, please contact Michael Steinzig.
Also included are demonstration sessions where residual stress related equipment and materials will be displayed. In addition, RS Summit participants are invited to give voluntary poster presentations. Informal conference proceedings will be prepared. The proceedings will include a list of attendees and demonstrators and their affiliations, as well as the presentations from the speakers and poster presenters.
We welcome you to the 2010 Residual Stress Summit.

We regret to announce the passing of Professor Iain Finnie, a greatly respected teacher, mentor and friend, on December 19, 2009. A symposium to honor his life and achievements will be held September 24-25, in Berkeley, CA. The symposium will include several residual stress talks from leading researchers. The Iain Finnie Memorial Symposium takes place immediately prior to the Residual Stress Summit 2010. The drive from Berkeley to Lake Tahoe takes approximately 3.5 hours.
