MRS Spring Meetings & Exhibits

Since 1990, the MRS Spring Meeting has been held in only two locations—San Francisco and Phoenix—and has always been tied to Easter Weekend. All of that changes in 2021.

  • 2021—April 17-23—Virtual
  • 2022—May 8-13—Honolulu, Hawaiʻi
  • 2023—April 10-14*—San Francisco, California
  • 2024—April 22-26—Seattle, Washington
  • 2025—April 7-11—Seattle, Washington

Honolulu, San Francisco and Seattle have been selected because they are considered Tier-1 locations for meetings and conferences, they are diverse metropolitan areas—premier destinations for arts and entertainment, and because these rotations will foster increased regional and student attendance.

MRS Spring Meetings are essential events for discovering and presenting the very latest developments in materials research. We hope you’ll plan to join us!
