Planning for 2015 - Education Symposium
We have an opportunity to offer an Education Symposium at the 2015 MRS Fall Meeting and are looking for three to four people interested in being co-organizers. The education symposia have become a valuable staple within the technical program of MRS Meetings. They have proven to be significant opportunities for sharing research and networking between education and science communities, as well as providing for many ancillary professional development programs and outreach activities.
Symposium Topic Proposal Deadline: May 15, 2014
Organizing a Symposium – Visit www.mrs.org/education-symposium-planning for information regarding organizer responsibilities and the submitting of a proposal. If you still have further questions, feel free to contact the 2015 MRS Fall Meeting Chairs or contact Dick Stevens at MRS HQ at firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-779-2724.
You can invite two or three of your colleagues to be part of the organizing team, or collaborate with others answering this general call for organizers. We also have experienced education symposium organizers who can help mentor those co-organizing for the first time. Visit www.mrs.org/spring-2014-call-for-papers-fff and www.mrs.org/f13-cfp-qq to view two Call for Papers examples used for the education symposia at the upcoming 2014 MRS Spring Meeting and the recent 2013 MRS Fall Meeting.
The 2015 MRS Fall Meeting and Exhibit will be held in Boston, Massachusetts. All technical sessions and non-technical events will be held at the Hynes Convention Center and adjacent Sheraton Boston Hotel. Locations and schedules of individual symposia will be posted in 2015 as available. Non-technical events will be listed on the menu to the left. Information about individual sessions and special events will be posted as they become available closer to the meeting.
Starting with just four symposia in 1983, the MRS Spring Meeting and Exhibit has grown to over 50 symposia and over 5,000 attendees. Held annually in San Francisco’s Moscone West convention hall, MRS Spring Meetings are essential events for discovering and presenting the very latest developments in materials research. www.mrs.org
