Materials Day 2015

Save the Date - September 28 - 29, 2015

What will the materials landscape look like in the year 2025? Come to Materials Day 2015 to catch a glimpse of what we might expect over the next decade in materials research. Although revolutionary materials are being discovered in the lab today, they typically can take 15 years to be commercialized into a product. The White House Materials Genome Initiative aims to cut that time in half by accelerating discovery and deployment of advanced materials in conjunction with computational materials design. So, what will the next decade bring? Our invited speakers, workshop leaders, and poster presenters will try to answer that question through a materials perspective.
