This international symposium is organized to honor the very distinguished work and lifetime achievements of Prof. Akira Yazawa in Metallurgical and Materials Processing. Prof. Yazawa is renowned for his impact in extractive metallurgy of copper as well as in that of Zn, Pb, Ni, Sn, Sb, Au, Hg and Cd. His over 300 publications have dealt with a variety of subjects such as slag, alloys, matte, speiss, aqueous solutions, alcohols, algae etc. This symposium reflects this rich and colorful activity and cover simultaneously the physicochemical fundamentals of metallurgical and materials processing, their industrial applications as well as the development of new and improved technologies in non-ferrous, ferrous, aqueous, electrochemical materials processing and in materials-related environmental sciences. 

The symposium drew an overwhelming response from the international professional community. The 262 abstracts received from all over the world made this symposium the biggest ever held in its class. Papers were sent by nearly 520 authors representing the following 37 countries in all continents: Asia (Japan, China, Korea, Kazakhstan, Israel, Singapore, Thailand, India); America (USA, Canada, Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Peru); Europe (Russia, Finland, The Netherlands, Austria, England, Turkey, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Belgium, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Poland, Hungary, Germany, Norway, Albania, Romania, Slovenia, Yugoslavia); Australia and Africa (South Africa, Egypt). (The order is according to the number of the papers and/or authors for each continent and country). Two thirds of the papers are from Japan, USA, Canada, Chile and China. This record number of papers left us, the organizing committee, no option but to prepare three separate volumes: Volume 1: Materials Processing Fundamentals and New Technologies; Volume 2: High Temperature Metal Production and Volume 3: Aqueous and Electrochemical Processing. However it should be noted that there is not a clear-cut classification. Some papers related to the technological advances, modeling or fundamentals are included in the second and the third volume since they are closely related to respective subjects. We believe that these volumes will be a useful contribution to the professional community worldwide.

The symposium was cosponsored by a record number of 28 Professional Societies and Independent Publishers all over the world as well as 10 Corporate Cosponsors

We would like to express our appreciation to all TMS staff for their support and dedication. 

One of the co-chairs and editors, Florian Kongoli, would like to thank his wife Megan Dibra for graciously supporting him at a time when she was herself extremely busy practicing as a lawyer for a judge of the Quebec Court of Appeal. He also want to thank his three-year old son, Davis, for forgiving him for the time that daddy was not staying with him as usual and his grand mother Madam Dibra for the help given during the extra hours of work dedicated to this symposium and proceedings.
