Deadline: May 14, 2021

As part of the early stages of planning the program for the 2022 MRS Fall Meeting in Boston, we are currently soliciting proposals for symposium topics of future technical themes and broader impact.

Our goal is to plan an exciting meeting that includes both new and rapidly developing topics, as well as current ones of interest to the materials community.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • 2D Materials
  • 3D Printing; 3D Bioprinting
  • Advances in Metals and Ceramic Processing
  • Autonomous Materials; Smart Materials; Self-Healing Materials
  • Biomaterials; Biomimetics
  • Characterization; Microscopy; Spectroscopy; Functional Imaging; In Situ and Operando
  • Electronic Materials—Oxide Electronics, Diamond, Ultrawide bandgap materials
  • Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence/Data Driven Materials Research
  • Flexible Electronics and Wearables
  • Materials Modeling; Materials Theory
  • Global Impact and Sustainability
  • Interfaces of Materials
  • Lightweight and high-strength Composites
  • Materials for Energy: Conversion, Harvesting, Storage, and Beyond
  • Materials under Extreme Conditions and Environments
  • Materials for Healthcare
  • Materials for Human-Machine Interfaces
  • Materials for Beyond Moore's Law Computing and Information Technologies:
    Low-voltage, Neuromorphic, Internet of Things, 5G communications
