The 2013 MRS Spring Meeting will be held April 1-5 in San Francisco, California. The MRS Spring Meeting has grown considerably in recent years, and the 2013 Spring Meeting looks to be the largest yet. The scientific sessions will include many new and developing areas of materials research as well as some well-established and popular topics.
Fifty-six (56) symposia will comprise the technical core of the meeting. The symposia are grouped into the following clusters:
Electronics and Photonics: These symposia will focus on electronic and photonic materials, devices, and processing. In addition, the areas of organic electronics, and Si photonics for interconnects, sensing, and imaging will also be covered.
Materials Science and Materials Chemistry for Energy: Topics including photovoltaics, energy conversion and storage, materials science for sustainability, artificial photosynthesis, thermoelectrics, and energy materials in-situ characterization methods will be discussed.
Nanostructured Materials and Devices: This cluster contains sessions on the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials with additional symposia devoted to new trends in 2-dimensional nanomaterials, ultra-small clusters, piezotronic nanostructures, and metal oxides.
Biological, Biomedical, and Bio-inspired Materials: These symposia cover a wide range of topics including bioelectronics, organic and inorganic materials, bionanotechnology, and multi-functional materials. Several symposia explore the critical issues involved in interfacing biological systems with synthetic materials for regeneration, imaging, cancer therapies, and sensing. Other areas covered include cell instructive materials, cellular micro-environments and the immune response, and the functionalization of organic and inorganic materials.
General Materials Science: This cluster rounds out the meeting with symposia on oxide and superconducting materials, ionic liquids, materials characterization, plasma and ion-beam processing, carbon interfaces, nuclear radiation detection, reversible phase transformations, extreme environments, and materials science education.
Symposium X: Frontiers of Materials Research will feature presentations aimed at a broad audience and on topics at the forefront of research on materials science and engineering.
To complement the scientific sessions, the symposium tutorials will provide detailed introductions to particularly exciting areas of research, while the Exhibit will showcase products of interest to the materials community. The technical meeting and exhibits will be located at the Moscone West Convention Center and the San Francisco Marriott Marquis Hotel. We look forward to seeing you there!
