  • Meeting Chairs: Claudia Gutiérrez-Wing, David Lederman, Xavier Mathew, Fiona Meldrum

“Knowledge gained anywhere can benefit people everywhere” 

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 22nd IMRC was held August 11-15, 2013.

The IMRC Congress currently offers a range of symposium topics of interest to the materials research community at large. It has become a popular meeting destination with about 1,500 attendees from more than 30 countries.
