Materials Day 2020

Convergence of Materials and Life: November 10 - 11
Virtual and Free Event

This year's Materials Day will be highlighted by the theme The Convergence of Materials and Life. Materials and devices on and inside the body will lead to better diagnostics, monitoring, and therapy. Join us virtually for a unique and informative Materials Day experience.

Out of an abundance of caution, we will be holding our annual Materials Day via Zoom. The event is free, but registration is still required. Please be sure to download the Zoom app to your computer prior to the date. In lieu of the usual poster session, students and technical staff will offer prerecorded Flash Talks on the Monday prior to the event. The presenters will be available for Q&A sessions at regular times during the two days of Materials Day. This conference will be recorded and made available after the event, but we urge you to attend live to interact with the presenters.

Registration is now OPEN
