2021 MRS Fall Meeting

Join us for the 2021 MRS Fall Meeting & Exhibit—
A Hybrid Event

The MRS Fall Meeting & Exhibit has long been considered 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.  And this year, MRS will be taking the 2021 MRS Fall Meeting & Exhibit to an exciting new level, offering a Hybrid Event where presenters and attendees can choose to join us in person in Boston, Massachusetts, attend virtually from the comfort of their home or office, or both!

No matter how you attend, the 2021 MRS Fall Meeting & Exhibit will continue to showcase leading-edge materials research in both fundamental and applied areas, presented by scientists from around the world. Add poster sessions, networking events, professional development opportunities, award talks, and an exhibit of international manufacturers, suppliers and developers, and this will be an event you just cannot afford to miss.
