Submit or Present a Slide (or Both!)
Calling materials science all-stars! Are you interested in becoming a more active participant at the MRS Meeting? Looking for some fun in your scientific life? Do you know a rising star who would be perfect as a presenter? Submit a creative slide, or deliver an amazing presentation, and win recognition and cash prizes.
• Create a PowerPoint side with a contribution to your research or a materials science-related topic. Check out our winning slide from 2019 »
• Don’t be too serious! Popular science topics aren’t the point; we’re looking for the funniest story or best design!
• Topics can range from your actual research to something silly, such as the use of rubber ducks. Be sure to keep it simple so that anyone can present, and keep it clean—inappropriate content will not be accepted.
During the event, presenters will be placed in a breakout room and receive their assigned slides. Presenters will have five minutes to prepare a two-minute (maximum) presentation.
Winners will be selected by anonymous audience voting. First ($125), second ($75) and third ($50) place prizes will be awarded to both authors and presenters.
