2021 MRS Spring Meeting

At present, the Materials Research Society is anticipating a successful event in Seattle and we hope you’ll plan to join us for this first meeting in the great Pacific Northwest.  At the same time, we understand that these are uncertain, fluid times. The COVID 19 pandemic is at different stages across the world and MRS is vigilantly monitoring the situation globally, as well as restrictions in place on the ground in Seattle. Be assured that if travel and other social distancing restrictions remain in place into the early Spring, MRS is preparing contingencies for hybrid and/or virtual meeting programming.  We encourage researchers to prepare and submit abstracts when we re-open for Late News on JANUARY 4, 2021. Regardless of final platform, we will confirm attendance and provide presentation options once we are closer to the meeting date. 

Your research is important not only to your own career, but will help shape the future of materials science and technology. Submit your Late News abstract for the 2021 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit and share your best work with the global materials community. It’s an event you can’t afford to miss!


Seattle SkylineTime and time again, "multidisciplinary" research is touted as essential to innovation. That is why, from April 18-23, 2021, researchers working in seemingly unrelated fields will gather in Seattle, Washington, to promote, share and discuss issues and developments across disciplines.

The 2021 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit is 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.

Symposium Sessions

Late News Abstracts will be accepted January 4 – February 1, 2021 (11:59 pm ET).
