Dedicated to the exchange of ideas among
researchers, professionals, and students and
an informed citizenry since 1958.

Our Annual Forum attracts attendees from across the globe, is highly interactive, and provides ample time for discussion.

What to expect. The Annual Forum typically begins on a Thursday with technical tours and an afternoon session featuring graduate-student research and poster session, followed by an evening reception. The following day includes full day of presentations and Awards Luncheon with a keynote speaker. Panelist are offered up to 30 minutes to present their research and engage with the attendees.

The “TRF Advantage”  Our Annual Forum is attractively priced and designed for busy professionals, with its manageable day-and-a-half format. The Forum typically attracts around 125 students and professionals, making the attendee experience far more personalized than at larger conferences. Presentations of research are typically followed by vigorous discussion at coffee breaks and our reception, providing a rich intellectual experience that encourages many attendees to return year after year.

The 66th Annual Forum will be held in St. Louis during spring 2025 and sponsored by the St. Louis chapter. Additional information on paper/poster submissions, sponsorship opportunities, and attendee registration will be available in the coming months.
