Meetings & Events

MRS Spring Meetings & Exhibits

Starting with just four symposia in 1984, the MRS Spring Meeting and Exhibit has grown to over 60 symposia and over 5,000 attendees. And that is just one of the reasons the MRS Spring Meeting, historically held in San Francisco, moved to Phoenix in 2016! MRS Spring Meetings are essential events for discovering and presenting the very latest developments in materials research. The move to Phoenix allows for maximum flexibility to accommodate growth and enhance the attendee experience.

If you are interested in submitting a symposium proposal, please contact Diane Rosenbaum at for more details on the next open submission period.
