2018 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit

Date 02. April 2018 - 06. April 2018


Phoenix, Arizona, USA


Time and time again, “multidisciplinary” research is touted as essential to innovation. That is why, from April 2-6, 2018, researchers working in seemingly unrelated fields will gather in Phoenix, Arizona, to promote, share and discuss issues and developments across disciplines.

The 2018 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit is the key forum to present research to an interdisciplinary and international audience. It provides a window on the future of materials science, and offers an opportunity for researchers—from students and postdoctoral fellows, to Nobel and Kavli Prize Laureates—to exchange technical information and network with colleagues.

The Materials Research Society has developed a far-reaching series of programs that expose students, teachers, and life-long learners to the excitement of discovery and the significance of science in their daily lives. For interested MRS members, these programs provide an opportunity to participate in outreach activities, support national STEM education initiatives, and play a significant role in developing and nurturing the next generation of materials scientists.

The scientific process is no longer just about generating ideas, but about freely sharing those ideas with broader audiences. Now more than ever, the ability to recruit students, attract collaborators, and secure funding is tied to the ability to successfully bring research out of the laboratory and to the general public. Through its continuum of broader impacts programming and professional development sessions at MRS meetings, an ever-expanding awards portfolio, a University Chapter program that is now international in scope, and so much more, MRS, with the support of the Materials Research Society Foundation, is well positioned to engage, educate and fascinate into the next decade.
