POLISH MATERIALS SCIENCE SOCIETY

Genesis of the Society and its activity in the years 1995-2006

 

Based on Professor Leopold Jeziorski, Dean of the Faculty of Metallurgy and Materials Science Częstochowa University of Technology, Professor Adolf Maciejny, Head of Materials Science Department Silesian University of Technology, and Professor Jerzy W. Wyrzykowski, Dean of the Faculty of Materials Science Warsaw University of Technology, initiative a seminar entitled "The criteria and conditions of formation of research topics for Materials Science education" was organized in September 1995. The seminar was attended by 60 participants representing the following institutions: AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Częstochowa University of Technology, Krakow University of Technology, Lodz University of Technology, Poznan University of Technology, Rzeszow University of Technology, Silesian University of Technology, Warsaw University of Technology, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, University of Silesia in Katowice, Military University of Technology in Warsaw, Otto-von-Guericke Universität in Magdeburg and Technical University of Ostrava.

 During the meeting participants have supported the idea of establishing of  the Polish Materials Science Society (PTM – the Society) with the headquarter in Katowice, as an organization integrating Polish materials scientists working in the field of science and economy. The four members team to register the Society and prepare of the General Assembly was chosen during the seminar.

On the 9th of October 1995, Katowice Regional Court I Civil Department has registered Polish Materials Science Society, with the headquarter in Katowice.

First General Assembly dedicated to the election of authorities was held on 7th December 1995 in Katowice at Faculty of Materials Science, Metallurgy and Transport Silesian University of Technology. It was attended by 62 founding members of the Society representing almost all the national centers of research and education in the field of Materials Science and Materials Engineering and related Material disciplines. President, Board Members and Revision Committee were elected during this Assembly:

President: Prof. Adolf Maciejny (Silesian University of Technology);

Vice- Presidents: Prof. Andrzej Korbel (AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow) and Prof. Wojciech Przetakiewicz (Military University of Technology in Warsaw);

Treasurer: Prof. Stanisław Pietrowski (Lodz University of Technology);

General Secretary: Andrzej Dytkowicz BEng, PhD (Silesian University of Technology);

Board Members: Prof. Andrzej Barbacki (Poznan University of Technology), Prof. Leszek A. Dobrzański (Silesian University of Technology), Prof. Krzysztof Haberko (AGH University of Science and Technology), Prof. Leopold Jeziorski (Częstochowa University of Technology), Prof. Jerzy Wyrzykowski (Warsaw University of Technology), Prof. Mieczysław Wysiecki (Szczecin University of Technology) and Prof. Andrzej Zieliński (Gdańsk University of Technology);

Audit Committee: Prof. Jan Sieniawski (Rzeszów University of Technology) - the Chairman, Prof. Jan Adamczyk (Silesian University of Technology), Prof. Edward Guzik (AGH University of Science and Technology), Prof. Stefania Stachura (Częstochowa University of Technology) and Prof. Tadeusz Wierzchoń (Warsaw University of Technology).

According to the approved status and proposals of the founding members, the main objective of the Society was integrate and coordinate the activities of the national materials centers in terms of the exchange of experience and scientific, educational and technical information, meetings and scientific events, and dissemination of materials science achievements. Particular attention was paid to the strengthening of interpersonal relationships as the key of development of modern technologies. An important area of the Society activity is the cooperation with domestic and foreign institutions and scientific societies and participation in national and international scientific events. The Society status provides also the possibility of founding the regional branches.
