About MS&T

The Materials Science & Technology (MS&T) technical meeting and exhibition is the long-standing, recognized forum for fostering technical innovation at the intersection of materials science, engineering, and application. Each year, MS&T brings together scientists, engineers, students, suppliers, and business leaders to discuss current research and technical applications and to shape the future of materials science and technology.

The event's unmatched technical program addresses structure, properties, processing, and performance across the materials community. Its exhibition showcases a wide variety of equipment and services to the automotive, aerospace, instrumentation, medical, oilfield, and energy industries.

MS&T is Three Meetings in One

MS&T is organized by a joint partnership of leading materials science-related societies: the American Ceramic Society (ACerS), the Association for Iron and Steel Technology (AIST), and The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS). Learn more about the organizing societies.

Each year, MS&T features the following events:
  • ACerS Annual Meeting: Advancing the industry with the latest research in ceramics and glass
  • AIST Steel Properties & Applications: Technical developments related to ferrous metallurgy and the steelmaking process
  • TMS Fall Meeting: Exploring the intersections of development, synthesis, and application

MS&T: A History of Building Bridges in the Materials Community

The first installment of the MS&T conference series was held November 9-12, 2003, in Chicago, Illinois. Twenty years later, MS&T continues to be the fall destination for the materials community. Its broad technical scope and vibrant exhibition bring together scientists and engineers, students and professionals, industry and academia, exhibitors and decision makers from three leading materials-related societies in a single venue.
