Hosted annually, Materials Day includes a topical symposium followed by a student poster session. This year the symposium will be broad in scope and will involve primarily speakers from MIT. The theme will be Frontiers in Materials Research. Presentations will be given by speakers who represent MIT’s new generation of leaders in material research. Subjects covered will include: additive technologies for manufacturing, high temperature materials extraction and processing, probing and interrogation of neural function in mammals with fibers, utilizing optical phase change materials new high performance communication circuits and systems.

New for this year, Materials Day will include a panel discussion involving four distinguished leaders of MIT’s materials research community addressing the challenges and opportunities of materials research. The poster session immediately follows the symposium and showcases students research and it's applications. About seventy-five posters are presented each year, on a full range of research topics.

There is no fee to attend but registration is required.
