Place de Bordeaux
67082 Strasbourg

The 2020 Spring Meeting of the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) will take place from May 25 to 29, 2020, in Strasbourg, France (Congress & Exhibition Centre). It will be the 38th of the series started in 1983.

The scientific programme will highlight the latest advances in materials research at an international level, with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research in both fundamental and applied areas. In parallel with the technical sessions, more than 80 international exhibitors are expected to display equipment, systems, products, software, publications and services during the meeting.

The technical program of the meeting will include 25 symposia organized into 4 topical clusters :

  • Energy materials
  • Nanomaterials and advanced characterization
  • Biomaterials and soft materials
  • Electronics, magnetics and photonics

The conference will be augmented by a series of workshops/tutorials to be held on Sunday, prior to the conference. One on "Thin Film chalcogenide photovoltaic materials" (as part of the symposium A) and another one on "Artificial intelligence for advancing materials science".
