Science as Art Competition


Visualization methods provide an important tool in materials science for the analysis and presentation of scientific work. Images can often convey information in a way that tables of data or equations cannot match. Occasionally, scientific images transcend their role as a medium for transmitting information, and contain the aesthetic qualities that transform them into objects of beauty and art.

As a special feature of the 2012 MRS Spring Meeting in San Francisco, we are continuing the popular "Science as Art" competition. The competition is open to all registered meeting attendees, with entries to be on display in the Moscone West Convention Center. Multiple first-place and second-place awards of $400 and $200, respectively, will be presented to the winning entries at the meeting.  We invite you to view winning entries from past Science as Art Competitions.
