Friction stir welding (FSW) was invented by TWI (formerly The Welding Institute), Cambridge, UK and patented in 1991. The real growth in this field started in 1995. In the last 21 years, FSW has seen a very significant growth in both technology implementation and scientific exploration. This is the ninth symposium on Friction Stir Welding and Processing (FSW/P) held under the auspices of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS). The interest and participation in this symposium is an indirect testimony of the growth of this field. This year, a total of 72 abstracts have been accepted, and presentations will require seven oral sessions with an additional poster session with 14 unique posters. The presentations cover all aspects of friction
