Spring 2021 talks begin February 4

Welcome to the Spring 2021 North American Materials Colloquium Series (NAMCS).

We are pleased to announce the Spring 2021 schedule of the NAMCS, which will showcase some of the best and brightest senior graduate students and post-doctoral scholars in the field of materials science and engineering. This highly selective series is intended to provide visibility to future leaders in our field. Thirty-five universities in the United States and Canada are taking advantage of the series as part of their regular fall semester seminar series or are promoting talks within their campus materials communities.

Two viewing options are available. Links to asynchronous talks will become available at least one week before the scheduled seminar date. These talks will be closed captioned. Synchronous sessions with live introductions and Q&A will be held at 3 p.m. ET on Thursdays and 4 p.m. ET on Fridays via Zoom webinar. Information for joining the live sessions will be provided directly to participating universities, and the sessions will last up to 75 min. We have added abstracts, photos, and biographies of speakers, and digital posters to help universities promote each talk.

Thank you for joining us. We hope you enjoy the presentations.
