The links below will provide more information about this year’s Materials Week event.
Registration is $40 for students and $50 for all others through May 8; $50 for students and $60 for all others on site May 9-12.
The preliminary conference schedule is now available online. We will update the schedule as additional speakers are confirmed.
Student Poster Sessions are one of the highlights of Materials Week each year. Students and postdoctoral researchers at The Ohio State University are invited to contribute posters to our two posters sessions this year. Participants receive complimentary registration to 2017 OSU Materials Week. Deadline to register is April 7 – see the Call for Posters for more details.
An exciting new event this year is the Three Minute Thesis® competition. MS and PhD students at The Ohio State University are invited to participate. The 3MT® is an academic competition that challenges students to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience. Participants receive complimentary registration to 2017 OSU Materials Week. Deadline to register is April 7 – learn more in the Call for Three Minute Thesis® Competitors.
Faculty, research staff, postdoctoral researchers, and industry partners are invited to serve as judges at our two student poster sessions. The success of our poster sessions relies on the technical expertise and valuable feedback and participation of our volunteer judges. In exchange for your time, you will receive complimentary registration to 2017 OSU Materials Week. Please contact Jennifer Donovan (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like to volunteer.
