2007 MRS Spring Meeting
Moscone West, San Francisco Marriott San Francisco, Ca., USA 09/04/2007 - 13/04/2007
The 2007 Materials Research Society Spring Meeting will be held April 9-13 in San Francisco, California. The technical meeting and exhibits will be located at the Moscone West Convention Center, and will include 36 symposia. The Meeting will highlight advances in microelectronic device processing and fabrication; materials research for photonics, electronics, magnetics, and sensors; polymeric, hybrid, and biological materials, and nanoscale materials, properties, and applications. To complement the scientific sessions, tutorials will provide a detailed introduction to particularly exciting areas of research, and the Exhibit will showcase products of interest to the materials community. The scientific sessions will include many new and developing areas of materials research as well as some well-established and popular topics. Topics in the electronics and magnetic materials symposia include amorphous and polycrystalline silicon thin films, functional oxide interfaces, and nanoscale magnetics. Symposia on optical materials and phenomena will highlight recent advances in photovoltaics, photonics, and negative index materials. Polymer nanocomposites, organic electronics, sensors, and medical devices will be featured in polymer, hybrid, and biomaterials symposia. Nanoscale materials and phenomena will be explored in symposia with topics that include synthesis and applications of low-dimensional materials, nanoscale mechanics and heat transport, engineered particles for disease diagnosis and treatment, and functional ceramics for energy systems.
Symposium X, "Frontiers of Materials Research," will feature topics at the forefront of materials science and engineering. In addition, a science-and-art contest is planned in which artwork related to materials science and aesthetic scientific pieces of art, e.g., micrographs, will be exhibited and judged for awards.
