Impressions from the Materials Research Society Spring meeting

What's been going on at the Materials Research Society Spring 2016 meeting in Phoenix.

I’m writing this about halfway through the first exhibit day of the Materials Research Society (MRS) Spring 2016 (although this post will go live on the morning of the final day). The MRS changed a few things this year, and not only the venue (this meeting had been in San Francisco every year, and has now taken up residence in Phoenix, AZ.)

We’re still here in Phoenix from (local time) 11-1:30. So if you’re still at the meeting in Phoenix when you read this, stop by!

They’ve put the main stage for the plenary session and other big talks in the exhibit hall; which means that we as exhibitors can hear bits and pieces of those big talks.

About the Kavli lecture—the Kavli Distinguished Lecturship winner is Cato Laurencin, who is also the founding Editor-in-Chief of a journal from our Springer colleagues, Regenerative Engineering and Translational Medicine. Our other colleagues from Nature were also talking about their new titles, Nature Reviews Materials and Nature Energy.

Notable folks stopping by, for SpringerOpen, included Roger Narayan, editor of 3D Printed Materials and Systems, and who was also the co-chair of this year’s meeting. And we also had a visit from Steve Curley, co-Editor of our Cancer Nanotechnology.

We’re still here in Phoenix from (local time) 11-1:30. So if you’re still at the meeting in Phoenix when you read this, stop by!
