Time and time again, "multidisciplinary" research is touted as essential to innovation. That is why, from April 19-23, 2021, researchers working in seemingly unrelated fields will gather in Seattle, Washington, to promote, share and discuss issues and developments across disciplines.
The 2021 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.
As part of the early stages of planning the program, we hereby solicit proposals for symposium topics of future technical and broader impact.
Our goal is to plan a stimulating meeting that includes both new, rapidly developing topics as well as current ones of interest to the materials science and engineering community. We are seeking proposals in all areas of materials research spanning materials design, synthesis, functionalities, processing, characterization, and modeling in light of global grand challenges.
All proposals for technical or broader impact symposium programming must be submitted by November 29, 2019, via the online submittal site using your MRS username and password. If you do not have a username and password, the site will enable you to create them. This site includes easy step-by-step instructions that will help you develop your proposal into the form of a preliminary Call for Proposals (CFP).
