Poster session at the Opportunities in Materials Informatics workshop held in Madison, WI.

In this section are Regional Materials and Manufacturing Network (RM2N) events, events of affiliated organizations, and activities that would be of interest to the materials science community. These are great opportunities to network with leaders and colleagues in the materials science field.

If you have any materials-related upcoming events you would like to promote on this page, please contact us.

Upcoming Events

8th Annual Wisconsin Science and Technology Symposium
July 27 & 28, 2015 at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls

Join the brightest minds in the Badger State this summer in River Falls! This two-day event is the year’s signature networking opportunity for University of Wisconsin researchers, students and industry professionals. Ideas fly. Collaborations spark. What will you take home?

Opportunities in Materials Informatics
Feb. 9-10, 2015 at the Lowell/Pyle Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison

The goal of this workshop is to highlight exciting applications of informatics in materials science to engage both materials and data scientists in a more integrated community. The workshop will be a brainstorming oriented event with a small number of speakers and plenty of discussion, and we expect it to yield both novel ideas and cross-disciplinary collaborations.

The 14th Annual UW-System Symposium for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity
April 24th, 2015 at the UW-Milwaukee Student Union. Presentation formats includes poster, oral, visual and performing arts.
