2021 Technical Program

For the 19th installment of the Materials Science & Technology (MS&T) conference series, we're developing an extensive technical program that includes 75 symposia in 13 technical tracks. 

In-Person and On-Demand Options

There will be two ways to access this year's technical programming content: at the in-person MS&T conference in Columbus, Ohio, October 17-20, or as on-demand presentations, which can be viewed remotely October 22 through December 31, 2021. You can register for the in-person conference or for on-demand access through the MS&T21 registration page.
