2020 Spring Meeting

The E-MRS 2020 Spring Meeting at the foreseen dates (May 25-29) is CANCELLED and has to be POSTPONED.

Because of the rapidly developing health concerns and risk to life caused by the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the French Government has ordered that all meetings involving over 1,000 participants must be cancelled.

Therefore, it is with great regrets that it is necessary to CANCEL for a certain time the E-MRS Spring Meeting and Exhibition scheduled for 25th - 29th May 2020.

In the next few days, E-MRS will be contacting:

- all conference and symposium organisers;

- all registered participants;

- all exhibitors;

- and those who have submitted abstracts regarding future E-MRS events.

Further announcements will be made in due course.

E-MRS is always concerned with the health and well-being of the participants at the conferences and other events. We all regret this present situation.


The 2020 Spring Meeting of the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) will take place from May 25 to 29, 2020, in Strasbourg, France (Congress & Exhibition Centre). It will be the 38th of the series started in 1983.

The scientific programme will highlight the latest advances in materials research at an international level, with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research in both fundamental and applied areas. In parallel with the technical sessions, more than 80 international exhibitors are expected to display equipment, systems, products, software, publications and services during the meeting.

The technical program of the meeting will include 25 symposia organized into 4 topical clusters :

  • Energy materials
  • Nanomaterials and advanced characterization
  • Biomaterials and soft materials
  • Electronics, magnetics and photonics

The conference will be augmented by a series of workshops/tutorials to be held on Sunday, prior to the conference. One on "Thin Film chalcogenide photovoltaic materials" (as part of the symposium A) and another one on "Artificial intelligence for advancing materials science".



We look forward to your participation to create an outstanding 2020 E-MRS Spring Meeting!
