The 2016 MRS Spring Meeting will feature 14 tutorial sessions covering a variety of topics. Thirteen of those tutorials will complement the scientific sessions, while the fourteenth is a broader impact tutorial. There is no charge to attend the tutorials.
An option to purchase tutorial notes, now available in color, at the preregistration price of $35 will be available on the registration form. After the preregistration period ends, notes will be priced at $45 and will be available at the Publications Desk on-site at the meeting.
All tutorials will be held on Monday, March 28, in the Phoenix Convention Center North, 100 Level.
Broader Impact Tutorial BI-T1
Green’s Function Method for Multiscale Simulation of Advanced Materials
1:30-5 p.m., Room 128 B
Instructor: Vinod K. Tewary, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
This tutorial will focus on aberration correction technologies. Instructors: David J. Smith, Sandra Van Aert
This tutorial will focus on the materials challenges and prospects of next-generation rechargeable battery chemistries and liquid and solid electrolytes for lithium and sodium ion-based electrochemical devices. Instructors: Arumugam Manthiram, Austen Angell
This tutorial will cover basic concepts of electrochemical interfaces in liquid electrolytes, as well as electrochemical interfaces in contact with polymer electrolytes. Instructors: Nenad M. Markovic, Adam Weber
This tutorial covers caloric effects and materials. Instructors: Antoni Planes, Andrej Kitanovski
Tutorial EE15: Teaching the Role of Materials in Sustainable Development—Analytical Frameworks, Crossing Disciplines and Student Engagement »PCC North, Level 100, Room 123
This tutorial will appeal to today’s materials scientists, engineers and technology managers who seek to identify, articulate, and implement changes that improve sustainability while enhancing the bottom line of their organizations. Instructors: Tatiana Vakhitova, Richard LeSar and Kevin Jones.
The tutorial will introduce attendees to organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and organic laser systems, both with high relevance to Symposium EP1. While both concepts make use of organic materials, the toolboxes to understand all the details are very different. Instructors: Chihaya Adachi; Stephane Kena-Cohen
This tutorial will discuss the growth and characterization of silicon nanostructures and their potential applications in energy conversion and storage. Instructors: Stefaan DeWolf and Sumit Agarwal
The morning segments of the tutorial will focus on the methods and techniques of materials by design. The afternoon segments will explore the application of these methods to real materials development, with demonstrations via a series of example cases. Instructors: David Ginley, Michael Toney, Marco Buongiorno Nardelli, Andriy Zakutayev
The tutorial will provide foundational knowledge for researchers, ranging from students to professional scientists, in the field of the design of complex oxide thin films and heterostructures. Instructors: Hans Christen, Steven May and James Rondinelli
This tutorial will introduce the properties of phase-change materials relevant to applications in memory and neuromorphic devices. Instructors: Raffaella Calarco, Bart Jan Kooi, Jean-Yves Raty
This tutorial will focus on production, synthesis, fabrication, properties and applications of nanodiamond. Instructors: Dean Ho, Anke Krueger
This tutorial will focus on nanoparticle adhesion and removal. Instructors: Cetin Cetinkaya and Stephen Beaudoin
This tutorial, which will be held in the spirit of a laboratory class where participants are expected to take notes and work on exercises that will be provided, presents an image-analysis workshop using powerful open-access image-analysis software, ImageJ. Instructor: Jesse Greener
The Phoenix Convention Center & Venues is mere steps from a variety of urban eateries, live music, professional sports, art museums and more. In fact, downtown’s Roosevelt Row was recently named one of the 10 Best City Arts Districts in America by USA Today. So whether you’re looking for restaurants featured on The Food Network, or just wanting to take in some local culture, downtown Phoenix has something for everyone.
Named one of the top-10 convention center facilities in the country, the Phoenix Convention Center & Venues offers more than 900,000 sq. ft. of meeting and exhibit space, including a 312,500 sq. ft. main exhibit hall and a 46,000 sq ft ballroom. Conveniences include 99 meeting rooms, 61 loading docks (22 of which are climate controlled), exhibit halls with pre-scored floors and an Executive Conference Center – all complimented by a 2,312 seat Symphony Hall and the 1,364 seat historic Orpheum Theatre.
Phoenix has nonstop service from 80 US and 20 international destinations, so getting to and from “America’s Friendliest Airport” is both easy and affordable. The Phoenix Convention Center is four miles from Sky Harbor International Airport. Guests flying into Phoenix have multiple transportation options, including the Metro Light Rail, which has dedicated stops at the Convention Center.
With more than 325 days of sunshine a year, the weather is almost always permitting. In a 2014 survey of show managers, Phoenix ranked the second most popular destination for trade shows and events in the country.
