Join us in Phoenix!

Time and time again, "multidisciplinary" research is touted as essential to innovation. That is why, from April 17-21, 2017, researchers working in seemingly unrelated fields will gather in Phoenix, Arizona, to promote, share and discuss issues and developments across disciplines.

The 2017 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit is the key forum to present research to an interdisciplinary and international audience. It provides a window on the future of materials science, and offers an opportunity for researchers—from students and postdoctoral fellows, to Nobel and Kavli Prize Laureates—to exchange technical information and network with colleagues.

We invite you to be a part of this global forum.  Join us in Phoenix for the 2017 MRS Spring Meeting!
