Excellence in Metallography Award

The APMI International "Excellence in Metallography Award" was created in order to recognize the individual(s) responsible for metallography used to support and provide evidence for the ideas set forth in a conference technical paper.

Any MPIF/APMI annual conference author(s) submitting a publishable manuscript is eligible for consideration.
