Materials Research Society Fall Meeting & Exhibit

The Materials and Research Society is Headquartered in Warrendale, Pennsylvania. Annually, in the fall at the Sheraton Boston Hotel and Boston's Hynes Convention Center, the MRS holds a Fall Meeting. These meetings bring together worldwide materials research on a wide variety of subjects. Thousands of researchers meet together to network and share methods and materials research topics and themes. Exhibits provide opportunities for purposes of connecting and educating. For those whose work and interest is focused on measured, factual investigation and study of materials science, the Fall Meeting in Boston is of major importance.

Association Beginnings and Purpose

Those who research the themes and branches of learning included in materials science explore the relationships and practical application of the properties of matter in various fields of engineering and science. These researchers correlate chemistry and applied physics providing the means of the molecular and those materials large enough to be observable by the naked eye. Disciplines such as nanotechnology and science, and forensic engineering can be connected and combined by coming together and the sharing of practical knowledge.

Innovative visionaries began to see the need to promote idea of interdisciplinary research in the late 1960s. Developing their plan, by 1973, the Materials Research Society began. Their main purpose was to provide a way for researchers to interconnect, network and exchange technical communication among sundry fields of research.

Hynes Convention Center Location and Nearby Attractions

Those researchers and Materials Research Association members attending the Fall Meeting at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston will find themselves only a ten-minute drive southwest from the heart of Boston. Located right off Interstate 90, the Massachusetts Turnpike on Boylston Street, the Sheraton Boston Hotel and the Hynes Convention Center is near to many fine restaurants. The Boston Architectural College, Prudential Plaza and the New England Conservatory are right on the same street.

Then, six or seven blocks down Boylston Street are the connected parks, beautiful Boston Common and Public Garden. On the Tremont Street side of the public park, the Boston Visitor Center welcomes visitors with information on the city, attractions, local history and more. The Common has a many venues like a bandstand, fountain, and historic monuments. Public Garden is has formal landscaping and has walking paths. Nearby, the Charles River Esplanade extends for three miles along the Boston shore from the Boston University Bridge to the Museum of Science.
