Symposium Support

The MRS Symposium Support Program allows you to share in the Society’s commitment to the advancement of scientific research.
 
Your support of a symposium session at the 2021 MRS Fall Meeting will help the Symposium Organizers provide a high-quality technical program and encourage participation from researchers all over the world.

The Symposium Support Program offers four support levels—Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze. Exposure and recognition are based on your level of support and the opportunities in which you choose to participate. Signature Benefits and opportunities are available for both the in-person and virtual components of the 2021 Fall Meeting.

Completed applications should be returned to MRS at F21SymposiumSupport@mrs.org or via secure fax at 724.779.4732. Application must be received by October 8, 2021, to receive Signature Benefits.
