“Knowledge gained anywhere can benefit people everywhere”  

Official Conference Website 

The core mission of the Materials Research Society is to promote leading-edge research on materials around the world.  The Materials Research Society (MRS) and the Sociedad Mexicana de Materiales (SMM) are excited to be working together on this global effort by growing the International Materials Research Congress (IMRC) held annually in Cancun, Mexico.  

The IMRC Congress currently offers a range of symposium topics of interest to the materials research community at large.  It has become a popular conference destination with about 1,500 attendees from more than 40 countries.  PLEASE NOTE: Complete information regarding IMRC 2012, including abstract submission, lodging, and more is available at the official IMRC 2012 website
