2025 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit

Time and time again, multidisciplinary research is touted as essential to innovation. That is why researchers working in seemingly unrelated fields will gather in Seattle, Washington to promote, share and discuss issues and developments across disciplines at the 2025 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit.

The 2025 MRS Spring Meeting 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.

Call for Symposium Proposals

We are seeking proposals for symposia in current and future technical topical areas of materials research as well as broader impact areas. In particular, global collaborations and diversity are important features of MRS meetings. We look forward to receiving proposals that maintain strong international and gender diversity in symposium organizers as well as invited speakers, including participation by industry-based materials researchers and professionals.

Submit a Proposal

Deadline December 4, 2023

Our goal is to plan a stimulating meeting that includes both new and rapidly developing topics, as well as current ones of interest to the materials research spanning materials design, functionalities, synthesis, processing, characterization, and modeling, with a tilt towards applied areas as well as applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Electronics and Optics, including devices
  • Energy Conversion and Storage, and Sustainability
  • Multifunctional Materials
  • Nano and Quantum Materials
  • Soft Materials and Biomaterials
  • Structural Materials
  • Synthesis, Prototyping, Manufacturing
  • Characterization, Techniques and Tools
  • Modeling, Simulations and Data-Driven Approaches

Proposals in emerging and rapidly developing topics are especially encouraged, including:

  • 2D Materials
  • Adaptive and Responsive Materials
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Automation
  • Biomedical Applications
  • Electronics, Optoelectronics and Photonics Devices
  • Flexible, Large Area Electronics
  • Materials for Robotics
  • Materials under Extreme Conditions
  • Organic and Molecular Electronics
  • Plasmonics
  • Quantum Materials
  • Self-assembly

Broader impact programming is intended to extend the influence of scientific research to the quality of life and society at large. Examples include:

  • Education and Training of the Next Generation of Materials Researchers
  • Public Outreach
  • Career and Professional Development
  • Impact of Materials Research on Global Economies and the Environment
  • Efforts to Broaden Diversity and Inclusion of Underrepresented Groups
