11th International Materials Education Symposium

COVID-19 Important Information!

The health and safety of all attendees is of paramount importance. Following recommendations from Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and local public health authorities we have made the hard decision to cancel the 2020 Materials Education Symposia. This includes both the International and North American events.

We will be scheduling mini online events for 2020 and look forward to continuing the series in 2021.

For anyone that had registered for IMES 2020 or NAMES 2020, you will be contacted shortly with next steps.

If you would like any additional information, please contact
