The 2013 Residual Stress Summit will take place October 8 - 10, 2013 at the Hilton Garden Inn Idaho Falls, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA. The meeting follows the successful format of the four previous RS Summits held in Los Alamos in 2003, Vancouver in 2005, Oak Ridge in 2007, and Lake Tahoe in 2010.  You can get more information at

The 2013 RS Summit is designed to bring together residual stress users and developers in a format that provides "take home" information for the entire audience.  As in the past, all the sessions will be specifically targeted, with invited talks that include industrial specialists and residual stress developers presenting their experiences regarding the formation, mitigation and effects of residual stresses.  We will soon begin scheduling speakers, and would be interested to hear from you with additional themes for the Summit or ideas for specific talks.  Please realize that in order to have a cohesive set of talks we will not be able to utilize all suggested topics or talks.

The Summit will again include a combined poster and demonstration session, where residual stress related equipment, materials and contributed posters will be displayed.  The format of the meetings will provide substantial time for interaction at the poster/demo session.  If you are interested in contributing and presenting a poster or bringing equipment for a demonstration during this session, please see

The RS Summit is a non-profit event, and the aim is to keep the registration fee at a moderate level.  The registration fee will cover the 2 1/2 days of focused talks, a welcoming reception and all meals (breakfasts, lunches, dinners and coffee breaks).  More details will be posted soon.

Save the date, and we look forward to meeting you in Idaho in the Fall.
