All hotel reservations in Boston, Massachusetts, made through the official MRS Housing Block at www.mrs.org, have been cancelled. No additional cancellation efforts for these hotels are
required. If reservations were made outside the MRS official block, individuals will need to cancel their own reservations.
You will be contacted by MRS headquarters staff with details about the virtual program. MRS thanks you for your patience as we work through the details. We will share more information as soon as it becomes available.
MRS journals do allow submission and publication of figures and content that have appeared online as part of a virtual presentation. Standard journal peer-review policies apply to these submitted papers. If you plan to submit to a non-MRS journal, we

You will be contacted by MRS exhibit headquarters staff regarding your options. If you do not hear from us shortly, please contact Mary Kaufold to
review your options and opportunities.
