2010 OSU Materials Week was a great success, with over 330 participants representing OSU and 15 other universities, over a dozen industry collaborators, and several government labs. Many thanks to our Program Planning Committee, session coordinators, speakers, corporate sponsors, and participants for making this such a fun and informative conference.
A highlight again this year was the student poster sessions, where 80 research posters were presented by OSU students and postdoctoral researchers. On Wednesday, September 15, ten award winners were announced at the Materials Week luncheon. OSU President Gordon Gee joined the group and presented plaques and Barnes and Noble gift cards to each of the ten winners, listed below. Congratulations to the ten students, their advisors, and colleagues on an excellent presentation of your research.
