Deadline May 13, 2022

As part of the early stages of planning the program for the 2023 MRS Fall Meeting, 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. Your input is extremely valuable in helping assure the breadth and topicality of the MRS Meeting, as well as ensuring a satisfying Meeting experience.

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

  • 2D Materials
  • 3D Printing; 3D Bioprinting; Additive Manufacturing
  • 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
