Costs and Options for the 11th North American 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.

Additional options

In addition to the two-days of the Symposium itself, you are also invited to join the Symposium dinner, various social events, and to take part in the short course which will precede the main event. The courses will be led by Professor Mike Ashby. Whereas the main Symposium presentations cover all aspects of materials-related teaching, these optional courses introduce and demonstrate the use of CES EduPack.

Note: Conference slides will be made available to participants after the event: photography will not be permitted during the main session.
