The MRS Workshop Series provides a concentrated focus on timely and important research areas, as do the MRS Spring and Fall Meetings. Workshops, however, differ significantly in that they allow attendees to focus their full attention to a designated topic over a 2-3-day period; offer much more interaction and discussion between speakers and the audience; limit audience size; and offer attendees a more in-depth review of important topics than is typically allowed in a “snapshot” symposium. MRS members enjoy reduced registration rates for all MRS Workshops.
The Workshop Series is just one more way MRS is responding to the needs of its members. If you would like to suggest a topic or volunteer to organize a workshop, please contact Pat Hastings, Director of Meeting Activities.
