Abstract : The 2013 Fall Meeting of the Materials Research Society was held December 1-6 in Boston, Massachusetts. The world s foremost international scientific gathering for materials research, the MRS meeting showcases leading interdisciplinary research in both fundamental and applied areas, coordinated by over 200 scientists from both academia and industry in 19 countries around the world. Symposia concerning the utilization of a broad range of advanced materials in electronics and photonics devices and applications were available, from oxide semiconductors to diamond, compound semiconductors and magnetic nanostructures. Recent advances in plasmonics, metamaterials and photoactive organic materials, as well as organic microlasers, comprised separate themes. Two topical symposia concerning large-area patterning and solution-based processing of functional electronic/photonic materials and devices were included. Symposia concerning the synthesis and function of a broad range of nanomaterials were available, from semiconductor nanowires to nanocomposites, carbon nanostructures and cellular materials. Recent advances in microelectromechanical systems, phonon engineering, nanoscale patterning and self-assembly, and other emerging nanomaterials comprise separate themes. Finally, two topical symposia concerning nanostructured materials in extreme environments and elastic strain engineering for unprecedented material properties were included.
