The Materials Research Society (MRS) encourages coverage of its technical meetings and exhibits by the scientific and general news media.

Press passes are issued to editors and reporters representing bonafide news publications only. These passes are not intended for editors whose primary purpose is the acquisition of authors and manuscripts, or for individuals and organizations whose primary objective is of a sales and marketing nature. In addition, please note that a maximum of four Press passes will be allotted per company.

Please note: This page is for editors and reporters only. Please visit our Meeting Registration page for general attendee and speaker registration.
