Once again the time has arrived: from September 27th to 29th, 2016 Europe´s Material Science and Engineering scientists (MatWerk) will meet at the Materials Science and Engineering Congress (MSE) at the Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany. A special highlight is this year´s guest country, one of the most important research and economic regions in the world, the USA.
With more than 1,400 participants, the MSE is one of the largest English speaking congresses with exhibition in the field of Material Science and Engineering across Europe. In symposia and plenary lectures numerous scientific, social and economic relevant questions of Material Science and Engineering are discussed every two years.
For 2016 the biggest U.S. societies: the Materials Research Society (MRS) and the Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS) have been involved in the concept and design of the congress.
Hosted by the German Materials Society (DGM) in Darmstadt, Germany the MSE is the central platform for material science and engineering experts to present their research field to a large international community and to network across borders since 2008. In addition to different side events, the DGM Tag with its Nachwuchsforum is an integral part of the MSE.
The MSE´s host, the DGM, is the largest technical-scientific society for Materials Science and Engineering in Europe. For almost 100 years it has combined the expertise of the specialist field from science and the industry: by representing the interests of its members from science and the industry - and acting as a guarantor for the systematic development of the field.
