MRS to hold 2006 Spring Meeting April 17-21; technical program and exhibition scheduled.
The meeting is designed to highlight advances in microelectronic device processing and fabrication; materials research for photonics, electronics, magnetics, and sensors; complex and biological nanoscale materials and systems; and materials for energy and environmental applications. The technical program will include 35 symposia and three technical forums. Two forums will focus on nanotechnology education and risk assessment, while the third is titled "Frontiers of Materials Research," and will spotlight topics at the forefront of materials science and engineering.
The technical program will feature new and developing areas of materials research as well as some well-established topics. Topics in the microelectronics symposia will range from amorphous and polycrystalline silicon thin films to chalcogenide phase-change materials Symposia on electronic, magnetic, and optoelectronic materials will present state-of-the-art organic, inorganic, and hybrid materials systems, as well as the latest breakthroughs in nanowires and nanostructured materials systems. Complex materials behavior and biological nanoscale systems will be explored through topics ranging from nanomanufacturing to mechanics of nanoscale systems to biological machines and nanoscale probes for molecular bio-imaging. An additional focus will be placed on how materials research impacts energy and environmental applications, such as hydrogen storage materials and materials used in water purification. To complement the technical program, introductory tutorials will be provided.
The exhibition will be held April 18-20. Over 100 international exhibitors will display a range of equipment, instrumentation, products, software, publications, and services.
Registration will be available in January. For more information, visit www.mrs.org.
