Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the Materials Research Society adjusts plans regarding the 2020 MRS Spring Meeting. MRS Bulletin interviews IBM T.J. Watson Research Center researcher Matt Copel, president of the Materials Research Society, about this situation. Read the interview here.
After thoughtful deliberations, the Materials Research Society (MRS) leadership has made the difficult, but necessary, decision to cancel the 2020 MRS Spring Meeting scheduled for April 13-17, 2020 in Phoenix, Arizona. The Society believes this is the responsible thing to do in light of the challenges introduced by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of MRS members, attendees, staff, and community is the top priority of MRS, making it inadvisable for the materials research community to gather for the traditional MRS Spring Meeting.
MRS is committed to working with the Meeting Chairs, organizers, authors, exhibitors, and sponsors to re-schedule, as practical, programming to an upcoming event.
