25th Canadian Materials Science Conference, June 17-19, McGill University
Call For Abstracts and Registration
In 2013, the 25th Canadian Materials Science Conference will be held at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, from June 17-19, 2013, with special courses running on June 15 and 16 and a poster session on June 19. This 25th CMSC will continue the tradition of being an important focal point of the Canadian materials science community and an excellent forum for academics and professionals to present their results and discuss advancements in a wide range of areas of materials science. As always, graduate student and postdoctoral researchers presentations are strongly encouraged. Short courses will also be available on for participants to attend.
The CMSC 25 Organizing Committee is delighted to announce that this year's D.K.C. MacDonald Lecture will be given by professor Peter W. Voorhees, Frank C. Engelhart Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University.
The CMSC 25 will also feature a banquet on Tuesday June 18 at 6:30. This will be a great event to mingle and socialize with many distinguished members of the materials science community.
Please accept our invitation to attend the Canadian materials science community at the 25th Canadian Materials Science Conference in Montreal in June 2013. For general information, please contact Nikolas Provatas at
. We look forward to seeing you in June!
