Wiley Analytical Science | February 28, 2021
Feeling Zoom-weary, fed up with pandemic limitations, and tough to get motivated for a virtual conference, I was wondering if the annual fall 2020 MRS meeting was really worth attending this year. However, partly because I did want to present my work and partly out of curiosity, I did decide to register and attend the meeting. And I am so glad I did because the 2020 MRS Fall Annual meeting – into which the spring meeting was merged – was both a big success and worthwhile.
