NIST Planning Committee to meet at CIVS

The NIST planning committee will meet at the Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation on August 6th to refine goals and objectives for the consortium, identify and assess critical challenges in steel manufacturing, identify additional participants from the value chain, discuss and recommend focus group topics of projects, identify members for the Business and Industry Leadership Team, and establish the agenda for the two-day workshop that will take place in October, 2014.

The NIST Planning Committee has been formed as part of the two-year, $480,000 grant received by CIVS from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on May 2014 to create a Steel Optimization Consortium.
