Live-Streamed Event

  • Technology Innovation Forum VII
    Monday, April 21 | 4-8:30 p.m. ET (1-6:30 p.m. PT)
    The seventh Technology Innovation Forum, Challenges and Opportunities in Commercializing Materials Research, focuses on various aspects of how to transition a promising materials technology to market. The Forum is intended for researchers and entrepreneurs seeking to begin a start-up company, create a more entrepreneurial culture within an organization ("intra-preneurial thinking"), or license their technology to an existing company.

Agilent TechnologiesAgilent Technologies sponsored MRS OnDemand's first webinar: Nanoindentation: Fundamentals and Frontiers. The webinar explored the basic concepts for applying nanoindentation as well as some of the newest measurement frontiers being explored today. Nanoindentation: Fundamentals and Frontiers is available for free viewing through MRS OnDemand.

Recording Policy

MRS reserves the recording and production rights to all audio and video at MRS events. Unauthorized recording (audio, video, still photography, etc.) of presentations (during sessions, workshops, tutorials, etc.) and of meeting activities including the exhibition, without the express written consent of MRS and individual authors is strictly prohibited. Attendees or exhibitors may photograph their own activity, but permission must be obtained from all involved parties before photographs may be taken of other people or displays at the meeting or exhibition. Press representatives must receive media credentials and permission from MRS. Those who do not comply may be asked to leave the premises.

MRS will be videotaping selected presentations and random events during the meeting to post on its website. Please be aware that this recording may also capture video images and/or audio of the conference attendees. If you do not wish to appear in these videos, please notify MRS by email immediately:
