Advancing collaboration at the cutting edge of scientific discovery

MRS Meetings serve as an international stage for the examination and dissemination of current and emerging materials research. At the heart of the meetings portfolio are the Spring and Fall Meetings. Researchers from all scientific fields, backgrounds and employment sectors—from students to Nobel Laureates—converge at these events to exchange technical information, engage in broader impact programming, network with friends and colleagues and contribute to the advancement of materials research. Large-scale exhibits add to the interactive meeting experience, as companies from around the world present innovative products and services to the scientific community, and in turn, gather information to develop new products and partnership that drive innovation.

While Spring and Fall Meetings are at the core of the meetings portfolio, MRS continues to enhance its service to the global materials community by endorsing and co-sponsoring standalone technical workshops and conferences. In addition, the Conference Services Program offers the Society’s trademark meeting management expertise to other scientific communities in need of conference support.

Because the Experience Matters

For more than 30 years, MRS has been known as a leader in scientific meeting management, and now, a new enhanced Conference Services program is available which embraces a core component of the MRS Vision – to provide a framework in which the materials disciplines can convene, collaborate, integrate and advocate.

The MRS Conferences Services team will apply the same experience, passion and skills that go into planning the MRS Fall and Spring Meetings, to your meeting... because your attendees matter!
