Williams Award

About the prize

The Williams Award is awarded to a paper of particular merit concerned with the manufacture and use of iron and steel. Ironmaking & Steelmaking and Materials Science and Technology editors decide from all papers published in the previous two years, based on recommendations received from the journal editorial boards. Final nomination is approved by the IOM3 Iron and Steel Society and the Materials Science and Technology Division.

You can view the full list of 2020 IOM3 award winners here.
