Thanksgiving has just passed and the December shopping season is in full swing. That must mean it’s time for the Materials Research Society Fall Meeting in Boston again. I’m excited as always to be back in Boston (home of my undergraduate alma mater) and happy to be back at our booth (100) at the MRS.
But the main thing is our special Springer Storytellers event. This event—where scientists tell the stories behind their research—features Markus Buehler, Ian Anderson, and others.
We’ve got a number of things going on at the Springer/SpringerOpen booth this year. We’re celebrating 10 years of Nanoscale Research Letters, for one thing. For another, we’re also excited about the launch of 3D-Printed Materials and Systems and the ongoing success of fully sponsored journals like Materials for Renewable and Sustainable Energy. More about those, though, later in the week.
Springer Storytellers event
But the main thing—not SpringerOpen or open access per se—is our special Springer Storytellers event tonight. Taking place in the Sheraton Boston in the Fairfax Room, this event—where scientists tell the stories behind their research—features Markus Buehler, Ian Anderson, and others. Register here, and the event starts at 7:30.
Other stuff at the booth
I did also want to mention briefly some other things going on at the booth not necessarily SpringerOpen or open access. The Journal of Materials Science is kicking off its Golden Jubilee celebration and announcing the winner of the 2015 Cahn Best Paper Prize; our colleagues from SpringerMaterials are hosting a Lunch and Learn at noon today; and we also have around 100 new books to show you. (You can find the full book list here.) And, finally, our new colleagues from Nature Physics and Nature Materials are just six booths down the aisle in Booth 122.
